Solo Grey '21
Football player strives to be servant leader
When Solo Grey '21 learned about the Wai'anae-to-Whitworth scholarship program for Native Hawaiians, he knew he had to look into attending Whitworth University. After taking a campus tour and finding out more about Whitworth's football program, he was sold.
"I saw an open door with the Wai'anae-to-Whitworth program, and I grabbed it," Grey says. "On the tour, I was exposed to Whitworth football's vision and mission. That helped solidify my decision in becoming a part of the Wai'anae-to-Whitworth program."
Grey values his identity as a student-athlete and is passionate about being a criminology & criminal justice major.
"One of my other passions is to become a good leader," he says. "And I believe that to be a good leader, you have to be a good servant."
He aims to do so through serving on a chapel worship team. Grey plays the drums in the Hosanna service on campus and is also a drummer for his church. He sees his faith as integral to his approach to leadership roles.
"It is through humility and an attitude of service that you encourage others to follow," he says. "Being an athlete should not be any different."
