Multiple Teams · Senior Spotlight – Elisha Burden


Elisha Burden – son of Todd and Lisa Burden

Sport – Cross Country

Elisha runs Cross Country for the SCS Lions. His favorite Bible verse is John 6:47, where Jesus says, “Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever believes has eternal life.”  Elisha’s home church is Lifepoint Church AL.  He has won the ACSI Servant Award.  While still undecided on where he will attend college, Elisha would like to double major in Business Administration and International Business.  His advice to young athletes is: “Stay motivated and focused on giving God the Glory”.

Elisha’s hero is his dad, Todd Burden, because he looks to God through every trial and tribulation.

Cross Country Coach Kelly Taylor has this to say about Elisha: “I was delighted when Elisha decided to run cross country this year.  He is a natural runner and was able to jump right back into running.  His times continually improved throughout the season and he was a great encourager for the younger runners.
