Q&A With Kody Wolfe
D9Sports: Do you have a favorite sport, and if so why?
KW: My favorite sport is basketball. I’ve put the most work into it going to some camps in the offseason, late nights at the basketball court with teammates and just the connection I have with the guys, and Coach Rapp makes me love it that much more.
D9: What is your best high-school related sports memory and why?
KW: It would have to be beating Moniteau in overtime in basketball. I hit a late three, and I’ve never heard a gym erupt like that before.
D9: Has there been a coach and/or teacher who has influenced you the most in your high-school career to this point, and if so, why?
KW: Brad Dittman (the former A-C Valley football coach) really influenced me to become a better athlete. He always pushed me. He went to college for football and was always my idol, a great guy. Also, Dave Sherman, Coach (Andrew) Rapp (A-C Valley’s basketball coach) and the alumni who played at ACV have helped me a ton.
