Swamp Fox News · Chick Fil A Spotlight Player of the Week – Khalil Whitaker


Senior Football player Khalil Whitaker is our featured Chick Fil A Spotlight Player of the Week.  Khalil likes the adversity when competing at ARHS.  His greatest sports moment was winning the Eric Berry Tournament in 12U football.  He would love to change the rule about targeting in the sport of football.  His pre-game ritual is to watch his old teammates highlights.  Khalil’s favorite Chick Fil A menu item is the Spicy Chicken Sandwich.  A few of his other favorite things include the movie “Freedom Writers”, the TV Show “Wild’n Out”, fried chicken, the musical group Kodak Black, video games, and the phone app Twitter.  His favorite professional sports athlete is New Orleans Saints wide receiver Marquez Callaway.  Khalil’s quote/motto for life is “make tomorrow better than today”.  He plans to go to a 4 year college after graduation and hopes to earn a degree, own a house, and go to Japan.  Coach Fidler states, “Khalil is a true team player.  He sacrificed for his teammates by playing many different roles on our team.  His unselfishness is why his teammates consider him to be a leader.  In addition to this, he is a tireless worker in the weight room and that effort translated to the field.  Khalil is the type of player every coach likes to have on their team.”  Best of luck to you Khalil as you finish your high school years, and we hope you enjoy college.  Never give up on your dreams!
