Mark Dockstader

Age: 17, Moffat County High School senior

Sport: Golf

How did you get your start in your sport?

“My dad (Tom Dockstader) was the golf pro here, and I’ve been playing my whole life. I quit for a couple years, then came back to it my sophomore year. I’ve really committed myself to it the last couple summers.”

What’s your strong point in your sport?

Participate in The Longevity Project

The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.

“Finding a way to get out of the hole with par.”

What has been the highlight of your season so far?

“The ability to have a really low round and if our third player isn’t playing so well, maybe I could make up for it.”

How do you plan to continue in your sport next season?

“I have to do rehab for my shoulder for five or six months. Then I’m playing in a series of about 15 junior tournaments next summer.”

What is your favorite thing about your sport?

“It’s the competitiveness, but also the friendliness. You can be competing so hard against others but still maintain friendships with them, like kids from other schools. You get in relationships with them.”

Do you have plans to turn pro?

“I actually could make a career of it and be a golf pro like my dad was and maybe work my way up to a country club or other courses. That would be cool.”
