WINFIELD — Winfield-Mt. Union senior Chance Malone was selected as a Beck’s Player with Heart. Each week, Beck’s Hybrids recognizes high school football players who demonstrate that they are a “Player with Heart.” The award is also tied to farming organizations such as the National FFA Organization, which Malone is a part of.

Malone plays offensive guard and middle linebacker for the Wolves. He currently leads the Wolves with 14 tackles on the year.

Outside of sports, Malone is involved with the Heartland Youth Show Lamb Circuit. After high school, he plans to attend college for agribusiness and continue his football career.

Malone told Brownfield Ag News that his family has been involved in 4H and FFA for around 50 years and that he makes a yearly trip to the Des Moines County Fair.

He was nominated for the award by his FFA Adviser, Amanda Brown, as well as head football coach Scott McCarty. He was nominated for his strong work ethic, dedication to his team and family, and involvement within agriculture and his community.
