The Rainbow Communications Athlete of the Month for the Northeast Kansas coverage area from Sports in Kansas is Troy graduate Cuttar Huss who played in the 44th annual Kansas Shrine Bowl on July 29th in El Dorado, Kansas.

Huss, who graduated this May from Troy, represented the Trojans on the East Shrine Bowl squad one last time in a football uniform and did in a big way. The multiple-sport all-state athlete caught a touchdown in the second quarter with 18 seconds to go on a 18 yard pass from Dalton Cowan (Topeka Seaman). Huss was the leading reciever on the East squad with two receptions for 39 yards. Huss, who led the Trojans to the 2-1A title, going 13-0 this past fall, also picked up a walk-on offer from Kansas State a day after his Shrine Bowl performance. It was a big weekend for one of the best mutliple sport athletes to come out of the area in quite some time. The East would go on to lose 22-21 on a Safety with one minute remaining. Huss, who was the 2x Sports in Kansas 2-1A Football Player of the Year, will now be a member of the Kansas State Wildcats football team as a walk-on. 

It marked the third year in a row the Trojans have had a East Shrine Bowl All-Star (Cuttar Huss - 2017, Chris Winkel - 2016, and Tristan Speer - 2015). The Trojans have made the semis in each of the last three years under head coach Derek Jasper and made the state title game the last two years, winning it all in 2016. All proceeds of the Shrine Bowl game go to benefit Shriners Hospitals for Children.
