Every week The Bear Facts chooses a Bruin athlete to be recognized. This week, the staff chose senior Joe Pearson.

Joe Pearson is a senior at St. Joe and is #40 on the varsity football team. Pearson can be seen on the field on both sides of the ball, whether offense or defense. His affinity for gaining yardage during crucial moments is what makes Pearson a star.

While Pearson serves as a captain, the starting fullback still remains humble. When Pearson was asked what could the team not got without, he refers to his teammate Keagan Helms. He says, “We couldn’t go without Kegan Helms. He is an energetic guy and a great athlete. He motivates us to be better.”

Pearson has also gained academic success with his membership to the honor roll. He is the sports editor of The Bear Facts and has received numerous awards for his articles.
