LAKE WALES – Some Hillcrest Elementary dancers got a special treat Wednesday (Oct. 9) when they met Highlanders starting center Cody Polston, who also happens to be the only male student enrolled in the ballet class at Lake Wales High School.
Hillcrest dance teacher Jessica Santos-Shoffner asked Polston, 17, questions about football and dance. He said he signed up for ballet after college coaches recommended it as a way to improve his strength, flexibility and footwork. Polston told the third graders that he enjoyed the dance classes, and he definitely could see improvements in his performance on the football field this year.
