November 2023 Elite Athletes of the Month

Elite Stone Supply, in conjunction with WBHF and Bartow Sports Zone, presents the ELITE ATHLETES OF THE MONTH. Each month, local high schools are provided the opportunity to name an Elite Athlete of the Month from their varsity programs and present the information on their honoree through Bartow Sports Zone and on 100.3FM and AM1450, WBHF in Cartersville.


The November Elite Athlete of the Month representing Cass High School is Bryant Cullifer.

“When I think of Bryant Cullifer, I think of the words resilient and selfless. Bryant has battled through injury the last couple of years because his teammates needed him and because he was determined to be out on the field to play the sport he loves. Bryant is a senior defensive end who has been a big part of our program for the last couple of years. He has never been the biggest or fastest player on the field, but he is everything a coach wants in a player. He works extremely hard, he is coachable, and has a high football IQ.” — Colonels head coach Steve Gates.

Cullifer is heavily involved in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes club at Cass and maintains a 3.96 grade point average.

He is the son of Scott and Mandi Cullifer.

Khristian Lando represents Cartersville High School as the November Elite Athlete of the Month.

A senior running back and outside linebacker on the Canes’ football team, Lando is also a member of the track and field team.

Lando was selected as a First Team All-Region 7-5A running back.

“It's truly heartwarming to have encountered a student like Khristian Lando at Cartersville. His dedication and hard work are truly remarkable, and his selflessness and joy for the success of his teammates are rare qualities to find. As a consistent leader on and off the field, he has played an essential role in our team's success during his three years of varsity football. This year, he finally got his chance to lead the backfield, and he did not disappoint, achieving a breakthrough year with 1,152 rushing yards and 23 touchdowns. His impact on defense with two sacks and 31 total tackles was also impressive. However, what truly stands out about Khristian is his personal growth. Despite facing numerous challenges, he has only become a stronger student-athlete through his perseverance and humility. It's truly a privilege to have had him at Cartersville High School, and being around him has been a pleasure for all that know him.” — Josh Flowers, Cartersville running back coach.

The son of Tina Lando, Khristian is on the A/B Honor roll and plans to accept a football scholarship to continue his academic and athletic career. He currently holds several offers.

Woodland High School’s November Elite Athlete of the Month is Grayson Moore.

A junior member of the Wildcats’ swim team, Moore swims all strokes but has already qualified for the state meet in the 50-yard freestyle. He qualified in this season’s opening meet and broke his school record in the process.

“Grayson is hard working whether he is in the water or the classroom. He is a member of the athletic leadership, as well as the food club. He has stepped up as a leader on the swim team and became a captain this year. Grayson has been a role model for the junior wildcats as our program expands,” Woodland swim coach Rebecca Beard.

Moore, the son of Jennifer and Aaron Moore, is an Honor Student and has completed the Foods Pathway.

He is striving to go to Florida and swim like his parents.

Chloe Tomlinson is the November Elite Athlete of the Month for Adairsville High School.

A senior and four-year member of the Tigers’ Competition Cheer program, she is the daughter of Kyle and Brittany Tomlinson.

“Chloe is a great leader and competitor,” said Adairsville cheer coach Kaylie Smith. “She is a great athlete and an even better teammate. She’s always kind and uplifting while leading by example. Her efforts helped us to a top-six finish at state. We will miss her next season.”

Tomlinson carries a 4.0 GPA and plans on attending Kennesaw State University to major in business or marketing.
