Nathan Evans, son of Cindy and Jason Evans, is this week’s Jet’s Pizza male Athlete of the Week.
He is a junior at Battle Ground Academy and a member of the Varsity Boys Cross Country Team. This season, Evans broke a record of 20 minutes in a 5k race.
He started running cross country in sixth grade as a way to meet new people and get involved at BGA.
“I was new to the school and the sport started in the summer so I could meet new people,” he said.
When asked what inspires him to train and compete he said, “My team inspires me to get better and always have fun.”
Evans said that one of the biggest influences in his life is his father, Jason. He said he looks up to him for his drive; something that he has in all aspects of life.
After graduating from BGA next year, he plans to attend college and major in a science-related field.
