Each month we’re recognizing two of our amazing M:7 Sports’ athletes for their inspiring accomplishments both on and off the field.


McKenzi Martin —​ Good as Gold (Class of ‘25)

A junior at Oak Glen High School in New Cumberland, WV, McKenzi has been a catalyst for the Golden Bears’ recent success which includes winning the 2023 WVSSAC State AA Volleyball title to cap off a remarkable 35-3-3 season.

As a defensive specialist and outside hitter, she’s the girl with the golden touch, having surpassed 1,000 career kills (after 491 on the season), earned AA First Team All-State honors, and made her second consecutive all-tournament team (after a team-high 18 kills with 12 digs in the final). Even as a sophomore, McKenzi was instrumental in the Bears’ trip to the 2022 WVSSAC Class AA Semifinals, as she made 2nd Team All-State and OVAC 1st Team All-Conference. She’s also played up from her assigned age group on both Club Hollywood VBC’s 17s and 18s teams.

In the classroom, McKenzi is an accomplished, hard-working student with a 4.0 GPA and membership in the OGHS Pep Club and OGHS Key Club which focuses on serving the community. Outside of sports, her wide range of interests and hobbies include art, cooking, fitness, and mathematics. A loyal friend and passionate teammate who thrives in a team environment, she comes from a family of athletes, including her younger sister, Averi, a Second Team All-State middle blocker for the Bears, and her dad who played football at WVU.


Jonah Williamson — King of the Hill  (Class of ‘26)

In only his sophomore year at Trinity Area High School in Washington, PA, Jonah took the reins as the Hillers varsity quarterback, helping turn around a struggling record and leading them on a stunning run to the WPIAL playoffs. In the meantime, he set the school’s single season passing yards record with 1,860 passing yards while also tallying an impressive 1,002 rushing yards and 13 rushing TDs.    

Every time he takes a snap, Jonah’s natural ability for decision making and accuracy are on full display, but football isn’t the only sport at which he excels. He also plays on the Hillers basketball team (small forward) and baseball team (catcher). In fact, PBR Pennsylvania described him as a “name to know” on the baseball diamond heading into next season where he excelled both at and behind the plate. 

An uber-athletic multi-sport threat standing at 6’2” 185 lb., Jonah displays top-tier talent and puts in the same effort to be great both on and off the field, as evidenced by his 4.00 GPA and leadership as student council class president.
