Clinton’s Konnor Burnam Athlete Spotlight Presented by Farm Credit of Western Oklahoma

Konnor Burnam

Clinton High School

Current Clinton High School sophomore Konnor Burnam is a member of the varsity track team and a member of the FFA chapter at school. 

Burnam first joined FFA when the opportunity presented itself in junior high. 

“I originally got involved with FFA in 8th grade my ag teacher at the time pushed me into doing 8th grade team creed, which transitioned into showing hogs and I fell in love with the organization. I always knew from a young age I wanted to when I was little my grandfather would take me to our county show to watch my cousins show angus heifers. Once I was old enough, I was only interested in showing and nothing else, but with my ag teacher’s persuasion, I eventually got involved with much more,” said Burnam. 

Showing livestock has become a passion for Burnam. Showing sheep and hogs requires a lot of attention to be paid to the animals. It’s just one of the activities FFA offers. 

“I enjoy the variety of FFA you’re not set to one activity. There’s always something to be doing. There’s something for everyone from livestock shows to life cycle drawing. If you’re a student there’s something that FFA has to offer you. I’m currently involved with the livestock evaluation team, prepared speeches, and showing livestock,” said Burnam. 
 
 As a member of the track team, Burnam competes in two events and loves being around his teammates. 

“Track is something that I also care deeply about. I’m a pole vaulter and I also run the 400-meter race. I love how my teammates always have a drive to be better. Another great thing is their selfless attitude towards others,” said Burnam. 

Burnam said his grandfather has made a huge impact in his life. 

“From a young age he’s taught me the importance of agriculture and hard work, but the most important thing he’s taught me is how to keep God in the center of my life. He will always have my upmost respect and will always be a man I strive to be,” said Burnam. 
 
 After high school, Burnam would like to attend OSU and pursue a degree in Ag Business. “I plan to run cattle and remodel, while starting a small show operation on the side.”
