As far as a high school career goes, it doesn’t get much better than the one Thorsten Balmer is closing out this spring. The definition of a true student-athlete, there wasn’t much that Thorsten didn’t excel at during his time at Boulder City High School (NV). A member of the BCHS student council, varsity football and varsity wrestling teams, ranked 26th in his class with a 4.2 GPA, this guy did it all and it’s no surprise Mr. Balmer has already received a ton of offers at the next level. Oh, and did I mention he was the Homecoming King, too? Congrats to Thorsten Balmer on a stellar high school career. He is this week’s Recruit Spotlight featured athlete.
