Athlete of the Week: Shining senior season for Champlin

OXFORD – Craig “Alex” Champlin will be another feather in the cap of the United States Military Academy come this fall.

Champlin is already the prize plume for Oxford and its basketball team. A dedicated student at the top of his class, a volunteer who gives away his time freely to help others, it’s hard to believe he has time to brush up on his basketball game.
