Local Athlete On JSU Winning Team

Most Chattooga fans remember Skyler Esmann for his sportsmanship more than his athletic ability. Although he was an outstanding, standout athlete, he was a far better ambassador for the school. Skyler was the type of player who would knock a player out of his cleats, then offer him a helping hand to get up and give him a word of encouragement as they returned to the huddle. He started a trend at CHS that several Chattooga players continue to this day.
After high School, Skyler chose to continue his education and football career at Jacksonville State University where he has continued to be an outstanding athlete but also, an exemplary ambassador of sportsmanship. 
“Sportsmanship is accepted at any level of football as long as it’s genuine,” Skyler spoke about his style of play. “Some people may mistake your kindness for a weakness but that’s before they battle against you one on one and realize there is nothing weak about you.”
Last week the JSU Gamecocks won the Ohio Valley Conference Title for the third consecutive year and Skyler was an instrumental part of that success. “Winning the OVC again felt amazing and college life is fun,” Skyler commented about his time at JSU. “It never seems to stop going so it goes by very fast, even if it feels like it will never end.”
