Gene Decker, Student-Athlete of the Week

Warwick Valley High School is proud to honor Gene Decker as this week’s Student–Athlete of the Week, sponsored locally by ALLSTATE Insurance Bill Garcia Agency.

The senior quarterback was a big contributor to the Warwick football team winning four of their last five games, including a 34–20 win over Ithaca High School in Johnson City. Gene finished the season with 258 rushing yards on 49 carries, while completing 73 of 133 passes for 1,166 yards, accounting for 12 touchdowns combined rushing (2) and throwing (10).

Gene is a solid student with an overall average in the mid 80’s through his junior year. Gene’s senior year includes challenging courses such as Principles of Engineering and Statistics, and he will be completing a Senior Project prior to graduation.

Gene is also a standout basketball player in the winter and will continue his education next fall as a business major playing either football or basketball. He is a member of the Yearbook Club and a volunteer for many of the Warwick Youth Leagues.

Gene is the son of Lisa and Gene Decker. He has two brothers, James (9th grade) and Derek (5th grade), and a sister, McKenzie (3rd grade).

On behalf of ALLSTATE Insurance Bill Garcia Agency, Warwick Valley High School is proud to recognize Gene Decker as Student–Athlete of the Week.
