Central Valley’s George Sonko is a nice guy, until it’s time to play

SPOKANE, Wash. — The Central Valley Bears are enjoying a nice start to the football season. One big reason is the leadership of George Sonko: he’s this week’s Shining Star.

Sonko is a leader on the field and in the classroom where he has a 3.6 GPA, following in his mother’s footsteps.

If you know a senior student-athlete that would make a good Shining Star, please send us their name and school to our e-mail address, sports@kxly.com.
