Blackwell’s Brett Lenon – Character Counts Presented by Blackwell Regional Hospital


Blackwell High School junior and varsity baseball player, Brett Lenon is ready to lead the Maroons into the 2019 season. Head coach Alan Monks has a young team, but is excited to have guys like Lenon on the roster. 

“We are a young team who are experienced in various positions. I’m looking forward to seeing the younger teammates progress in becoming better players and leaders. These are a good group of boys that are very coachable and have a willingness to learn,” Coach Monk said. 

Lenon is one of the guys coach Monk is looking to for leadership this season. To Lenon, his teammates are like family. 

“What I love about my team and teammate is that we’re all a family,” said Lenon. “This season we are striving to improve our game and develop a versatile team.” 

Lenon played his first baseball game at the tender age of four. He also plays football and basketball at Blackwell High School.

The shortstop said the Blackwell faithful always support the Maroons. 

“What I love about Blackwell is that it’s a small town. I love small towns and would choose a small town over a big city any day,” said Lenon. 

Academics are also important to Lenon. He works hard to make good grades and has big plans for his future once he graduates. 

“Academics are very important. I plan to go to college and study chemical engineering,” said Lenon. 

His family plays a big role in his life. Lenon knows they are always there to support him and help him make those big decisions. 

“My family has been a big influence in my life. They have all been very supportive of my decisions and have also been tough on me to get better and better every day,” Lenon said. 

When he’s not stopping ground balls or swinging for the fences, Lenon can be found practicing and improving his game in every sport he plays. He also loves spending time with family and friends.
