Announcing Madras High School’s October Athletes of the Month!
We are thrilled to continue the 23-24 school year with this new initiative, MHS Athlete of the Month! These exceptional athletes from cross country, boys and girls soccer, football, volleyball, and cheerleading have shown outstanding dedication and sportsmanship on and off the field.
Each coach took the time to write down summaries on why these individuals truly stand out. Let’s give a roaring cheer for these October stars!
Football: Jed was our most consistent and dependable offensive lineman this year. Although he is undersized for his position, he played with tremendous heart. He took pride in executing his job at a high level this year which allowed him to be successful. Off the field, Jed has made tremendous progress and has matured into a great young man.

Cross Country: Talise took 10th in the Tri-Valley district meet this year, making 2nd Team All-League Honors. Talise continually shows up and puts her best effort forward. Her teammates look up to her and she uses her example driven leadership to motivate and encourage her other team members. She runs with intensity and is very determined to succeed. She knows how to put the hard work in to see great results. She is continually improving and getting PR’s almost every race.
It is amazing to see her keep succeeding and to see her catch the interest of college coaches. I know Talise will succeed at whatever she chooses to do, because she is always willing to be committed to the effort!
– Coach Brad Padgett
Girls Soccer: Hailee dramatically improved our team defense in the second half of the year with her stellar play in goal. She made countless saves every game and kept our team competitive in those games. She’s tough as nails and fearless when it comes to diving for the ball or going into contact from an opposing player.
She is a great team player that was willing to step in and play keeper, because it was best for the team, even though she preferred to play on the field. She already has earned the respect of opposing coaches, refs, and fans even having only played in goal for about half of a season.
– Coach Shawn Darrow
Boys Soccer: Eben brought a balance of scoring, defense, and physical effort to the last month of the season. He was the one who did most of the work to get and prevent goals, but often didn’t show up in the statistics.
– Coach Clark Jones
Volleyball: Breanna is a team leader with a great work ethic. She has become very knowledgeable in the sport volleyball. She has conquered the many challenges that the season has presented. I am excited to see her continue to grow and develop into an exceptional volleyball athlete.
– Coach Frank Maynard
Cheerleading: Maria is a hard worker and is always one of the first ones on the mat. She shows up ready to work. She is always willing to lend a hand and brings so much positivity to our team.
