Idabel’s Shane Threadgill Athlete Spotlight Presented by McCurtain County National Bank

In the halls of Idabel High School, Shane Threadgill’s journey through basketball is not just
a collection of games but a testament to the impact of mentors, teammates and the lessons
learned on and off the court. For Shane, Coach Q stands out as a pivotal figure in his career,
shaping him since his freshman year.

“Since my freshman year, Quinton Threadgill came and helped me become a better player
and an even better young man,” Shane reflected. He’s been my role model, helping me get
in a better situation on and off the court.”

Teammates play a crucial role in any athlete’s journey, and for Shane, they are more than
just friends on the court: “All of my teammates push me to be better every day. Those are
my brothers.”

In the classroom, Mrs. Dianna Hamilton takes the spotlight as Shane’s favorite teacher,
making a lasting impact on his academic life. “She has helped me become a better student
this year.”

As the off-season unfolds, Shane has been diligent in preparing for the upcoming
challenges: “I have gotten stronger this off-season, gotten better at defense, and just
become a better leader, doing more than just scoring the ball.”

Basketball, for Shane, is not just a sport but a book of lessons he will always carry.
“Basketball has taught me to go hard at everything I do and to not take shortcuts in life.”
Among the plethora of memories, one stands out for Shane. “My favorite sports memory
will be this year when I make my first state tournament appearance,” he anticipates. This
aspiration showcases Shane’s dedication to reaching new heights in his basketball journey.
Looking ahead to the current season, Shane has both individual and team goals in mind.
“My goal for this season is to give my seniors the best year ever and to win a state
championship,” he said.

As for specific matchups, Shane approaches them with readiness and excitement: “I’m
looking forward to any matchup. Me and my guys are ready for anything.”

Beyond high school, Shane Threadgill envisions a future that includes college athletics. “My
plans after high school are to play college basketball.”
