Sequoyah’s Cody Jeanes named Athlete of the Month by BancFirst of Tahlequah
TAHLEQUAH – Sequoyah High School student-athlete Cody Jeanes has been named the BancFirst of Tahlequah’s Athlete of the Month.
Jeanes plays baseball and runs cross-country and track for the Indians. He’s been given the Golden Glove award twice, been the long-distance runner of the year, a state qualifier in the mile in track and an all-star in cross-country.
However, Jeanes gives all the credit to his school and family.
“I want to shout out Sequoyah High,” he said. “This is the school of choice for a reason. I wouldn’t have the opportunities I have if it wasn’t for the caring administration. I also want to give credit to my family and coaches. My family has always supported me, and has been at everything I’ve done. I also want to mention (cross-country and track) coach (Sam) Horsechief. I wouldn’t be the runner I am today if it wasn’t for him.”
In his final seasons at Sequoyah, Jeanes, who pitches and plays shortstop, said he has some big goals for the baseball field.
“I want to get all-state or Native all-state,” he said. “I would love to hit over .400, have a fielding percentage over 900 and an ERA under 2.00. As a team, we want to be district champs and get to state. I also want to strive to be a leader on and off the field.”
