Noble's Chelsea Lindsey : Athlete Spotlight - Presented by Landers Auto Group of Norman
By Derrick Smith
There is a lot that goes into becoming a successful athlete, no matter what sport you compete in. You have to put in a lot of work and time, but Chelsea Lindsey says that there is something else that is important if you want to become better. “You have to be willing to sacrifice,” Lindsey said. “It has taken a lot of sacrifice for me to become the player that I am now. I spent hours practicing and missed out on many activities with my friends over the years. It has taken a lot of dedication and commitment and it hasn’t always been fun, but I know that at the end of the day it’s all worth it.”
Chelsea is a senior at Noble High School. She plays point guard and shooting guard for the Lady Bears basketball team. She began playing basketball at the age of four and has loved it since. She is also a member of the golf team.
There have been a couple of role models in Lindsey’s life that have helped her become the person and athlete that she is today. “My mom and dad have made a big impact on my life,” she said. “They have helped me so much throughout my basketball career and have taught me how to be a better person outside of basketball.”
While she has had some memorable moments during her athletic career, Chelsea says that there are a couple that are at the top of her list. “One of the best memories for me was when I started my first high school game,” she recalled. “I was a sophomore and that was a big moment for me. I had twenty-three points and made seven of nine three pointers.”
Lindsey is also a member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. She recently signed her letter of intent to play basketball and continue her education at Neosho College in Kansas.
