So far, the most influential man that has guided me towards the path of success is my soccer coach Mark Matusek.

Why do you think athletics are an important part of high school?

The value of athletics in schools is significant and cannot be overlooked. Being a student athlete can teach many things including better social skills and working together in groups can lead to build leadership skills. Also, there is the college aspect. Schools are more likely to give scholarships.

What is your favorite subject?

Science had always been my best and favorite subject.

What sports do you play?

I wrestle, play soccer and track and field.

What is your favorite sport?

My favorite sport would be soccer, though I excel more at wrestling.

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

In five years, I will still be attending college if everything goes according to plan. I’ve just started looking into college recently, but really have no idea where I want to go. I will most likely study astronomy. I also plan to wrestle in college so I will lean towards a school with a strong wrestling program.
