On the baseball diamond, the Willows Honkers are 14-2 and in 1st place in the Sacramento Valley League with a perfect 7-0 record. One of the reasons, Kyle Enos, who's versatility on the playing field and in the classroom has made him our Subway Scholar Athlete of the Week.
Willows high's Kyle Enos takes pride in being an all-around baseball player.
"It's nice, it's kind of a mix-up and they can rely on me whenever they need me at a certain spot, whatever they need me to do," said Enos.
"He's definitely shown that he can step up and fill that role and do what we ask and does a great job," said Manuel Rakestraw.
When it comes to pitching, Enos throws it good.
He's 5-0 and hasn't allowed an earned run in 25 innings, but he isn't just a star on the mound.
He splits time at shortstop and he's also producing runs, and a .431 batting avg.
His average in the classroom is pretty impressive as well, he has a 4.0 GPA and credits his family for paving the way to success.
"Both of my brothers had really good grades throughout high school and I just follow in their footsteps," said Enos.
Other than school and baseball, Enos likes to hunt and each year he gets the chance to do so with a close family friend, who happens to also be a well known baseball figure.
"I've known Dusty Baker for about 5 or 6 years and he's been coming to our ranch every year to pheasant hunt and duck hunt. He's really cool and really fun to be around."
In the future, Enos plans on attending Butte College.
He doesn't what he will study but he's looking forward to figuring that out
For now, he's just focused on maintaining his stellar GPA, and helping out the Honkers baseball team, in any way he can.
"He's been great, he's come out and been a real leader this year, has focused up and put in the extra time and has done his job to help us proceed," said Enos.
