Athleticism, humility a winning package
Wednesday, May 01, 2013 11:00 AM
Madison Cubs' pitcher Ryan Thurston achieved every young boy's dream - pitching a no-hitter.
Thurston accomplished that feat Tuesday, and in the process he broke a 24-year-old school record for career strikeouts topping Todd O'Neal's mark of 314 set in 1989.
Those are certainly athletic accomplishments to be proud of. But what may be even more impressive was Thurston's reaction to his success.
After the game the senior pitcher told a Courier reporter: "I'm not going to take credit for (the no-hitter). I didn't have 21 strikeouts. We fielded the ball and didn't make any errors."
After graduation, Thurston will be headed to Western Kentucky University where he plans to play baseball.
Athletic prowess will take one only so far. Package that with humility and you've got a winning recipe.
