This month’s Colt Nation Athlete of the Month is Ross “Kitty” Gillispie. Ross is a freshman and played football for his first time this year at West Jessamine. Ross’ season was cut short when, early in the season, he suffered a broken arm in practice. After having surgery for his injury, Ross continued to show up to practice and support his team for the duration of the season. “I definitely feel like I was an encouragement for the team. Don’t quit what you love no matter what happens; even though I was out for the season I didn’t quit,” says Ross of his season ending injury. Ross plans to train and prepare for his upcoming football season in the winter and perhaps run track in the spring.
