Kapaun Mt. Carmel’s Doug Bates – Player Spotlight Presented By Schmidt’s Welding Supply and Repair

Kapaun Mt. Carmel senior, Doug Bates, is a member of the varsity football team and is a four-year player at fullback and middle linebacker.

Bates has also wrestled for three years and is a member of the powerlifting team since his sophomore year. Kapaun is a special place to Bates and he loves representing the school and his fellow students.

“I enjoy the family environment of Kapaun school. I believe that Kapaun students receive a strong sense of family support. When you come to practice you know that you can rely on the next guy to have your back. I appreciate the blessing that I’ve been given to attend a Catholic school and continue my academic education and spiritual guidance,” said Bates. “I was quite excited because I knew that I would be able to go back and I also knew if we went back to school that there would be a great chance for a season.”

Bates is making plans to continue his education and playing career after high school.

“I have plans on playing football somewhere as well as potentially joining the military. Also, I am a Karate instructor and I hope to have my own dojo after I graduate,” said Bates.
