WHAT MEMORIES DO YOU TAKE AWAY WITH YOU AS YOU LEAVE HIGH SCHOOL?
“My fondest memories probably center around lunch time. That’s where you get to connect between athletes and normal students who do not play a lot of sports. It’s where everyone gets together and connect. High school has gone by so quick.”
WHAT ADVICE DO YOU HAVE FOR YOUR FELLOW STUDENTS?
“Just work hard. There’s going to be nights where you have to stay up late or wake up early. It’s a lot to balance but everything is going to be alright. You will be able to sacrifice some hours here and there the next four years to set yourself up for success for your future.”
WHAT ARE YOUR PLANS AFTER YOU GRADUATE HIGH SCHOOL?
”I want to go into Engineering at either UTSA or Texas A&M University. I don’t plan to play sports at the collegiate level but it’s not something completely off the table.”
