Favorite school memory: All the homecoming dances, prom, and the Friday pep-rallies
People who have been an inspiration to me include:
Mr.Cotrell: I wouldn’t be the soccer player I am today without his coaching. He made me into a better player and was very fun to be around.
Mr. Hollar: He always pushes me to be my best and give 100% effort in every situation in life.
My parents: I wouldn’t be where I am today without them, they are always pushing me to go after my goals and I look up to them as individuals with their great work ethic.
Lately, I have been reading: The articles for my senior paper.
My advice to parents: Let your kids play the sport they want to play, moments like these are unforgettable and can be taken from you at any moment without any sign.
My biggest regret: Always saying that I wanted High School to be over but these have been an unforgettable four years.
Next year I will be: I will attending a four year school to major in accounting and play soccer.
