RANDOLPH, N.Y. (WIVB) – Chris Doubek made quite a name for himself during football season. The Randolph High School student broke the Section VI single season rushing record, leading his team to a state title and earning state player of the year honors in Class D in the process.

Doubek also wrestles, and takes inspiration from his dad.

“He got me involved in sports and told me to push myself to the limit and see what I could do and that’s what I have done,” he said.

Chris is following in his dad’s footsteps. Michael Doubek set a school record at Randolph in pole vaulting and is on the 100 wins-list in wrestling, just like Chris. His dad isn’t the only thing that drives him.

“I like competition. I like to see what I am capable of,” Chris said.

Randolph Head Football Coach Brent Brown said, “He is fast, he is strong and he is competitive. He wants to be the best.”

That attitude follows him in the classroom.

“I have tried to get the best grades I can so I can get to the best college I can,” Chris said.

One of his teachers, Todd Conley, said, “He has a good grasp at a young age on what it takes to succeed: hard work and dedication. He is a pole vaulter so I would say the sky is the limit. I am excited for him and his future.”

Someday Chris would like to build rockets and possibly travel into space, so the sky is actually what he is aiming for.
