The Rainbow Communications, Northeast Kansas Athlete of the Month, from Sports in Kansas for their performance over the month of September is Sabetha senior running back Mason Engelken. 

Engelken is part of a loaded backfield that spreads out carries but when he touches it yards happen. The senior is having another huge year after helping lead the Bluejays to a 3A state title last year. Engelken is averaging over 11 yards per carry in 2018. He has 42 carries for 464 yards and five scores so far in the Sabetha 5-0 start. Quarterback Gabe Garber also having a standout year on both sides of the ball and leads the Bluejays in rushing at 519 rushing yards. Joe Gruber the third piece to the group also has over 300 yards rushing, forming perhaps the best backfield in the small classes of Kansas. 

Sabetha is back in action this week in week three of district play with a matchup against Hiawatha. 

Rainbow Communications would like to congratulate the Bluejays and head coach Garrett Michael on a 5-0 start in 2018.
