Aiken Minton

WILKES CENTRAL’S Aiken Minton was an All-MVAC honorable mention selection as a junior in 2019.

Editor’s note: Due to the COVID-19 concerns canceling 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 summer.

Name: Aiken Minton

School: Wilkes Central High School

Sports Played: JV basketball in the 9th grade until an ACL tear during the season. I was a part of the baseball team all four years. I missed his freshmen year due to ACL reconstructive surgery but fought back hard to play his sophomore season.

Future plans: Signed to play baseball for Catawba Valley Community College.

Greatest high school accomplishment: Earning an opportunity to play college baseball.

Favorite moment playing high school sports, and why: Beating Alexander Central in one of only two games I was able to play my senior year. Because they are a 4A school, I was very proud of what our team were able to accomplish together.

What advice would you give to future athletes coming up in high school sports: Practice as hard as you play.
