KNWA Today: Fayetteville Athlete Wins Prestigious Award


The Gatorade Player of the Year Program recognizes and celebrates the nation’s most outstanding high school student-athletes.

Camren Fischer, a junior at Fayetteville High School, was named the Gatorade Arkansas Boys Track & Field Player of the Year. He was also Arkansas’ Gatorade Cross Country Runner of the Year.

The award recognizes not only outstanding athletic excellence, but also high standards of academic achievement and exemplary character.

“It means so much, because it really shows how my hard work and everything I do that no one really sees, has paid off,” Fischer said. “It just means a ton to me.”

Since its inception in 1985, the Gatorade Player of the Year program has become one of the most prestigious high school athletic awards in the nation.
