Class of 2018 Spotlight - Weldon Gilchrist

WINCHESTER, Va. - We continue our look at the Class of 2018 by meeting football star Weldon Gilchrist, Jr.

Major: Sports Management/Business 

Sport Played: Football 

Why did you choose Shenandoah? The best thing that stood out for me was the small classroom size. I have had the ability to grow 1 on 1 relationships with my professors. 

Favorite Class and Professor: Has to be Intro to Sports Management with Dr.Fritz Polite 

What do you like most about playing sports at SU? It has introduced me to an atmosphere that I am not used to. It changed my prospective on life in a numerous amount of good ways. 

Favorite thing to do in Winchester: Play my Xbox 1 

Favorite SU Athletics Memory: My favorite memory would be having a Pick 6 against Gallaudet University my sophomore year to put us up 14-0. 

What has playing athletics at SU meant to you? It has allowed me to grow as a man and given me a second chance at playing the sport I love. 

Post-Graduate Plans: Start off with a business job and transfer into the sports field. 

Nobody knows that I... play the drums.
