Choctaw High School junior Ethan Rone is a two-sport student-athlete and someone to watch on the diamond this spring. The junior can play the hot corner and second thanks to his ability to cover a lot of ground. On the football field, Rone also plays linebacker. 

“I’ve played baseball for 13 years. Ever since tee-ball. Football I’ve played for about 11 years,” said Rone. 

To say that he’s “all in” on being a Yellowjacket is an understatement. Whether on the football or baseball field, Rone gives everything he has and loves playing with this group of teammates. This season Rone and his baseball teammates are looking forward to getting back on the diamond after missing last year due to COVID-19. His expectations are to continue to improve and work towards being one of the top teams in the class.

“My expectations for this season are a lot of hard work and just keep getting better each and every day. I think that no matter how hard I work I still have something to work on so I just keep working to be the best version of me that I can,” said Rone. 

Over the years Rone has made some great memories as a baseball player. 

“The highlight moment of my career so far is probably getting nominated to play in the Oklahoma State Games this past year as a sophomore,” said Rone. 

Rone said his parents have been a big influence in his life and he thanked them for always supporting him.

“My role models are my parents. My dad, my mom, my stepdad and stepmom have given me everything to be successful in life and at the sports I play, and I am grateful to have them,” said Rone. 

As a student at Choctaw, Rone said his favorite teacher is his English teacher Mrs. Coulter. 

“Mrs. Coulter teaches me about life skills more than anything and how to pursue life in the right way and right attitude,” said Rone.
