Montlick & Associates' Athlete of the Year Named; Firm Donates $5,000 to Sandy Creek High School


December 10, 2010

Montlick & Associates, Attorneys at Law is proud to honor Alex Chisum, wide receiver from Sandy Creek High School, as the “2010 Montlick & Associates’ Athlete of the Year.” We commend Chisum for his performance both on the football field and in the classroom. In the regular season, Chisum made more than 30 catches for over 700 yards, and helped lead the Patriots to an undefeated regular season. In October, Chisum set a new Sandy Creek record for career receiving yards; breaking the previous record of Calvin Johnson, former Yellow Jacket All-American and now wide receiver for the Detroit Lions. Chisum is also a three sport standout athlete, and a member of the National Honor Society. The 2010 Montlick & Associates' Athlete of the Year credits his parents for all his success: “They’ve really been the backbone for where I am right now. Without them, none of this would have been possible.” Chisum plans to attend the University of Cincinnati next year on a full athletic scholarship.

In honor of Chisum and his achievement as the Montlick & Associates' 2010 Athlete of the Year, the firm donated $5,000 to Sandy Creek High School. The donation will benefit future Patriot student athletes. “As money comes in that is directed to an athlete or sport, we use that money to help promote the sport, and provide better things for the athletes in our programs,” says Sandy Creek Principal Roy Rabold.

The Montlick & Associates' “Athlete of the Year” is part of a season-long partnership with WSB-TV Channel 2. During the regular 2010 football season, Montlick & Associates and WSB-TV Channel 2 partnered to recognize student athletes who exceled both on and off the field in the Montlick & Associates’ Athlete of the Week. At the end of the season, the public voted online for the athlete they believed was most deserving of the top honor. The three Athletes of the Week that received the highest number of votes were named Finalists, and then the WSB-TV Sports Team selected the Montlick & Associates’ Athlete of the Year.
