Featured Athlete of the Week: Corbin Judy North Putnam
Corbin Judy is a senior at North Putnam who plays football and basketball.
Banner Graphic: Talk a little about your sports this year.
Corbin Judy: “Football was a good experience. I feel the team and I performed well, we just came up short against Monrovia. We are really excited and confident about the sectional this weekend, and we are planning to be practicing for the regional next week. I’m kind of the ‘Dirty Man’ down low in basketball.”
BG: What kinds of things do you do when you’re not playing sports?
CJ: “I spend a lot of time in 4-H, showing swine, sheep and dairy. I’ve had some projects to go on to the State Fair, and I’ve been pretty successful. I like to watch the animals grow and see that all the hard work has paid off in the end. Kind of like why coaches coach and teachers teach.”
BG: What are your plans for after high school?
CJ: “I am attending in Purdue and majoring in agri-business. I hope to get a job in helping farmers with their needs, whether it’s with a big company and they’re buying equipment or somehow giving back to the farmers. I would rather do that than operate a farm.”
BG: What kinds of things do you do for entertainment?
CJ: “I like to watch movies occasionally, and listen to music. I like funny movies and sports movies of any kind, and just about any kind of music from country to rap or hip/hop. I’d say ‘Stepbrothers’ is my favorite movie, and Blake Shelton is probably my favorite singer. I like to hunt and fish, and I just enjoy being in the outdoors. I hunt deer occasionally with a .357 rifle.”
BG: How has your time been at North Putnam?
CJ: “I remember like it was yesterday, I was with my friend [Matt Malone] and we were freshmen at summer workouts for football. We thought we’d have plenty of time to work and get better, and it’s flown right by and we’re getting read to graduate.”
BG: Which teachers or classes helped you most to decide your future?
CJ: “Mrs. [Kate] Skirvin [the agriculture teacher] has helped me to develop an ag career and look at the kind of jobs that are available.”
BG: What is something you’ve never done before that you’d like to do someday?
CJ: “Either bullriding or skydiving. I think the adrenaline rush would be great.”
