Corsicana — Two of the finest athletic campaigns in recent memory were honored in June when Frost’s Danial Steels and Mildred’s Olivia Farmer were named the Golden Circle’s Athletes of the Year.

Steels led a revolution in Frost (see No. 6.) football, and was named first-team all-state and the GC offensive player of the year. In basketball, he was the GC Player of the Year, and earned first-team all-state honors again.

He was also a state track qualifier in two events, played tennis and was a second-team all-district pick in basketball.

Farmer had a similar senior campaign. She was the GC volleyball and softball Player of the Year. In basketball, she was the GC Co-Offensive Player of the Year.

She was a Co-GC Athlete of the Year as a junior.

Steels went on to Prairie View A&M, where he is a linebacker in the football program, and Farmer signed to play softball at Navarro.
