Jon Gustafson


Jon Gustafson, son of Steve and Renee Gustafson, is this week’s Athlete of the Week.

He is a sophomore at Brentwood High School and a member of the Bowling Team. He has an average of over 160 and has had several games with a score of 180-190.

Gustafson said he started bowling for fun with his friends before deciding to truly pursue it.

When asked what inspires him to continue training and competing he said, “My friends that are working hard and encouraging." 

BHS Bowling Coach Brian Popovich said of him, "Jon has become a crucial member of our team in only his first year as a bowler. He has worked to improve very quickly, and has earned a spot in the starting rotation. I expect to see even greater things from him in the future." 

One of his top role models is his father, Steve. Gustafson said he looks up to him “because of his hard work and motivation” for him to do well.

He describes himself as hard working and competitive. When he’s not bowling, he enjoys spending his time hunting, golfing, playing soccer and spending time with his friends.

After graduating from BHS in a couple of years, he hopes to go to college to pursue a degree in engineering or business.
