PCPS Announces Wildcat of the Week Steven Faulkner

Body
The Heather Cannon Wildcat of the Week for Week #4 for the 2020-2021 School Year is Po-Hi Senior, Steven Faulkner. Superintendent Shelley Arrott said, "The Wildcat of the Week for Week #4, Steven Faulkner, consistently represents every characteristic of the Wildcat Way. As a 4th year Varsity Wildcat Basketball Player, Steven has demonstrated to every Wildcat what it takes to improve your game. Without doubt, he knows that it takes a strong work ethic, competing attitude and teamwork, and he proves he is committed to being best each day. Steven comes to Robson every morning at 5:30 to practice so he can master his craft as an effective shooter. Those who have watched him play basketball know he can knock down a three pointer with a soft touch. His smooth, free-flowing shot was developed through many hours and repetitions of practice. Coach McFarlin says that even when Steven practices, he does so with a high level of competitiveness, which is a great model for younger Wildcats to aspire. He spends lots of time mentoring younger players because he knows teamwork makes the dreamwork! Steven is selfless when it comes to being a team leader and it shows as the Wildcats have continually improved their team game the last few years!"
