Beckett Higginbotham

Meet Beckett Higginbotham, son of Josh and Ashton Higginbotham. Beckett is a second grader at Buford Academy who is being honored as this week’s Reader of the Week.

Beckett’s favorite author is Jake Maddox because his books are all about sports, one topic Beckett is very fond of.

Part of his love for sports novels can be attributed to his busy athletic schedule. Beckett plays baseball, basketball, soccer and football.

During baseball, Beckett plays pitcher, shortstop, second base and center field. In basketball, he plays point guard. In soccer, he plays all positions but prefers playing offense. And in football, he plays quarterback, safety and outside linebacker. To say the least, Beckett does it all!

Beckett has three younger brothers — ages one, four and five. He also has a labradoodle dog named Dodger! Besides reading and his busy athletics, Beckett loves swimming, riding his bike and playing with his younger brothers.

Beckett is an all around amazing student. From his love for reading to his amazing athletic abilities, Beckett is a true Buford Wolf. Congratulations, Beckett, and keep up the good work! Go Wolves!
