The 6-foot-1, 230-pound senior swept the shot put and discus events at the Class 3A state meet this past season, leading the Eagles to a fourth-place finish as a team. A two-time state champion in the discus, Turner’s personal-best throw of 182 feet, 5 inches this spring ranked No. 42 nationally among 2021 prep competitors in the event in 2021 at the time of his selection. His career-best put of the shot of 61-2 in May ranked No. 38 nationally.
Turner has maintained a weighted 3.74 GPA in the classroom. He has signed a National Letter of Intent to compete on an athletic scholarship at Utah State University this fall.
One of five boys in the state nominated for the Milward Simpson Award, Turner has volunteered locally as a youth basketball coach and as part of multiple community service initiatives through his church. He has also donated his time after school and on weekends to support and serve as a companion to a mentally challenged, wheelchair-bound student.
