March 13, 2018 07:38 PM

"I feel like I'm always testing myself," said Brighton's Noah Shinaman. "I don't see it as a limitation. I see it as a hurdle that I have to get over."

If sports and high school present hurdles, than consider Shinaman as sprinting down the backstretch after clearing all of those hurdles with ease.

The Brighton senior is a three-sport athlete and gives it his best on the field and in the classroom. He's a student with an A average, who loads his schedule with Advanced Placement (AP) classes.

"Playing a lot of sports and taking AP classes are a way to challenge myself and see, what are my limits and try to push them," Shinaman said.

Shinaman has blown past those limits, playing varsity sports in the fall, winter and spring for the Barons. He is a captain for two of those teams, and he's also the state champion in the giant slalom.

"I always want to challenge myself in the classroom and on the field," Shinaman said. "I want to play against the best players, to see how I fare in the most difficult situations."

Brighton's Noah Shinaman is the News10NBC Scholar Athlete of the Week, presented by Nixon Peabody and the Ide Family of Dealerships.
