Noble’s Austin Fisher: Driven Athlete of the Month – Presented by Landers Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM of Norman

Austin Fisher, a junior at Noble High School, has proven himself to be an extremely driven individual.

Fisher currently plays football and baseball for the Bears. He has played baseball since he was four years old and has played football for seven years. His parents began putting Fisher in sports at a young age and since then they have never stopped inspiring him to do his best.

“My parents have really influenced me on and off the field,” he said. “They are always pushing me to be the best I can be and they always hold me accountable and make sure I always do what’s right.”

Aside from his parents’ influence and inspiration, Fisher succeeds in sports due to his hard work and competitive nature.

“I’ve always loved competing since a very young age,” Fisher said. “I compete in almost everything I do whether that’s seeing who can catch the most fish or who can get the most hits in a game.”

Fisher is also motivated to be a role model and leader for his teammates. As the team is pretty close, they rely on each other for encouragement.

“My teammates mean everything to me,” Fisher said. “They always provide endless support while holding me accountable, and I do the same for them.”

While Fisher is driven to succeed as an athlete, he also uses his strong work ethic to succeed as a student. He is currently ranked 19thin his class and carries a 3.9 GPA. He is also involved with Student Council and the National Honor Society.

His baseball coach, Tyler Solomon, had nothing but praise when reflecting on Fisher’s accomplishments and character.

“Austin is the guy every coach wants on their team. Great in the classroom, great on the fields, and an overall example of what we want our program to look like,” Solomon said.

After graduating high school in future, Fisher hopes to attend the University of Oklahoma or the University of Central Oklahoma to pursue a career as a physical therapist.
