#4 - Baxter Elliott
Baxter Elliott does not play in what is considered 'major' sports that is Football, Basketball or Baseball.
Elliott believes Soccer and Tennis are major sports. If you ask the Athletic Department, all sports are major to Oxford, that though is another story for another day.
The fact of the matter is that Elliott is really good at both sports. He is good at being a Soccer player, he is REALLY good at being a Tennis player.

He normally plays Forward/Midfielder on the Soccer team and looks to make a run toward the 5A State Championship that looked like was going to happen last year. This team returns its core group of players including Elliott to lead the team to another playoff run. Watch for him to help his team avenge the loss that happened against Starkville, a team that they had previously beat last season, that saw them go on to win it all.
Once he is done with the season in Clinton (hint), he'll pick up his racket that has helped him obtain a Doubles Championship (with Will Swindoll) that he had to beat teammates Andrew Mullen and Robert Nance to do. He does not do it to win Championships for himself though, he has also helped be a part of the current 5-peat Championship the Tennis team is on. Then again it does take an individual effort to actually do the team part. Watch him dominate on the soccer pitch, then come to the tennis courts and watch him dominate in that sport - again.
This year, he hopes to be adding somewhere around 3 more Championships to his collection of hardware he has already helped earn.
