Colton Stotler

COLTON STOTLER, of West Wilkes, makes contact with a pitch against Mount Airy this spring.

Editor’s note: Due to the COVID-19 concerns canceling the remainder of the high school sports spring seasons, the Wilkes Journal-Patriot reached out to coaches and athletic directors to have their senior spring sports athletes to fill out this form. We’ll be recognizing spring sports seniors throughout the rest of the school year and the summer.

Name: Colton Stotler

School: West Wilkes High School

Sports Played: Baseball

Future plans: Attend N.C. State and become a chemical engineer

Greatest high school accomplishment: Being a part of a better team than I could’ve asked for.

Favorite moment playing high school sports, and why: Any of our playoff games, because the higher stakes makes it feel as though every action and every play of the game holds extra meaning.

What advice would you give to future athletes coming up in high school sports: Remember that there is always someone out there who is better than you, so stay humble. However, that doesn’t mean there should be anyone who outworks you.

Note: If any spring senior student-athlete would like to be recognized, email us at or and we’ll send you a questionnaire to fill out.
