Teamwork is a hallmark of Chemic Pride. Aristotle wrote, “The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.” Chemic Hall of Fame football and baseball coach Terry Wilczek often praised his teams for their ability to make 2 + 2 = 5. In that spirit, Midland High School Athletics and Firehouse Subs on Eastman Ave in Midland are proud to recognize a teammate of the week who epitomizes selflessness and demonstrates a commitment to the success of his/her team.
This week’s honoree is a member of the boys bowling team, Senior, Eric Kalishek.
Varsity boys bowling coach Trevor Terrill nominated Eric by writing, “He works hard at his game. Eric also sacrifices playing time to get other teammates in the matches and is always rooting them on.” Eric’s nickname is “The Viking” and is notorious for his bad jokes. His high game this season is a 226 and carries an average of 185.
Eric is the son of Tammy Kalishek. He also participates in football and throws the shot & discus for the Chemic Track team.
