Behind the scenes

Who is your favorite athlete?: Tim Tebow. When i was younger, all I remember is his touchdown pass to Demaryius Thomas to win the (2011) wild card game. Even though he doesn’t play football anymore, I respect him as a person.

Do you have a favorite team?: The Denver Broncos

What is your favorite sports movie?: “Remember the Titans”

Who is your favorite superhero?: The Flash. I like being speedy.

What is your dream car?: A new Jeep Grand Cherokee

If you could take a vacation after you graduate, where would you go?: Greece, on the coast in the Mediterranean.

What is your favorite outdoors activity?: Going to jump off the cliffs with my friends at Navajo Lake.

What is your favorite food to eat after a game?: Cereal, Fruity Pebbles to be exact.

What teacher has made a great impact on you?: I think Ms. (Tara) Henderson. She respects me as a person, not just as a student. When I’m struggling, she’s always there for me to help me learn, giving me extra time because she knows how much extra work I do outside of school, and she’s just an amazing person. She helps me work harder, too. She has four or five English classes and gives a research paper to every class. That’s a 3,000 word report, and she grades all of them within two weeks. She’s just such a hard-working woman, and I respect her for that, and it makes me want to work harder.
