7-year Cheyenne Sixer sets example for his peers
Cheyenne Sixers 18U, honor a standout player and student.
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Cheyenne Sixers 18U's Nico Vite says he aims to be on impact player on the field and a standup role model for his teammates off the baseball.
Cheyenne Sixers leadoff man reckons he has to do more to seize the opportunity. Instead of enjoying his summer Nico and his team have been hard at work. The trust his coaches have in him to be the spark plug to his squad speaks volumes.
“I like how they trust me to be in the leadoff spot, I’m returning player, so I need to be a good leader on and off the field, but putting me in that one spot, I like to get going first and show the other kids what we can do.”
Monday afternoon Cheyenne Sixers 18U took the diamond in a doubleheader against the Gillette Roughriders. To honor Nico for his hard work and dedication, Front office personnel, Coach Ty Lain and the rest of the guys, presented Vite and his parent with his jersey in a frame as he got a little brotherly love.
In the Fall, Nico Vite says he will be attending Garden City Community College, where he's looking to rewrite his story.
“I’ll be playing baseball as well as following my academic career in criminal justice. You’ve got a 3.8 GPA, what work has gone into that? In high school, I had a 2.8, so in college, I had to switch things around and be the best that I can be on and off the field and so I’ve put more work in on the academic part, and it paid off.”
It’s simply impossible to predict the future, however, Nico and from top to bottom, the rest can be baseball prospects. Each week the boys enter tournament play against the grueling competition, and with a 43-19 record, the season has been a success thus far.
