Meet the winner: Layne Phillips

October 8, 2013 6:35 pm

Team Mutual is proud to announce the name of the lucky Oak Mountain High School student that has been selected to participate in the 2013 Team Mutual Kick for College contest. Layne Phillips will have three chances to kick a successful field goal during OMHS’s game on October 11th and win scholarship money from Mutual Savings Credit Union.

Team Mutual would like to thank all of the Oak Mountain students and parents that registered for this year’s contest. Layne was selected from the most number of entries that Team Mutual has received since we began this program in 2010.

Layne is a junior at Oak Mountain. He attributes his success in the classroom to his interest in his favorite subjects.

“I enjoy English and my Forensic Science classes,” Layne said in a recent interview with Team Mutual. “Forensic Science is one of my favorite classes because it requires me to take a ‘hands on’ approach to learning more about the topic.”

When he lines up for his field goal attempts, it won’t be the first time Eagle fans have seen Layne on the field. You might recognize him from his involvement with the OMHS Student Athletic Trainer program.

“I’ve been working with the program since my freshman year,” Layne said. “It requires me to be at almost all of Oak Mountain’s home and away games for every team. I hope to make Athletic Training my major at the University of Alabama after high school.”

Tuscaloosa will be familiar territory for Layne when it’s time to go off to college because attending Crimson Tide football games is one of his favorite hobbies.

Team Mutual wishes Layne the best of luck in his attempt to win a $1000 scholarship from Mutual Savings Credit Union. All Oak Mountain students, parents and teachers are encouraged to come to the Eagles’ game against Spain Park this Friday night and support Layne. ┬áThe kick will occur between the first and second quarters.

GOOD LUCK LAYNE! Watch the video below to learn a little more about Layne:
