The St. Regis-Mullan football co-op has done really well this year, how have you felt about the combined team?

I really enjoy playing with them. It was definitely an adjustment, but I love playing with those guys, and we still get to play football.

What’s something you wish you could change/improve in St. Regis?

Ultimately, the largest complaint I have about St. Regis is how small it is, but there’s not a whole lot that can be done about that.

What do you do for fun with your friends?

My friends and I play video games together.

What are some slangs or phrases kids use these days?

We kids like to use words such as yeet, lit, and oof. Yeet, has many meanings such as yes, or to throw. Lit, means something is fantastic. Oof, is an expression of condolences if something bad happens.

What are your hobbies and interests?

I love to play sports such as football, basketball, and track. I enjoy playing my trumpet, and I enjoy playing video games.

Does social media make us more or less connected to one another?

Social Media makes us more connected. However, if one spends too much time on it, it can be destructive.

A baby boomer is someone who was born between 1945-1965, after world war two.

Are you excited to be out of school or wish you could go back and start over?

I am ready to start the next phase of my life, but if I had to redo it I would tell myself to have more fun and enjoy myself more, you only get to do it once.

It’s hunting season - are you a hunter? If so, what do you enjoy most about hunting?

I am a hunter. I enjoy the quiet and the solitude, and the thrill of finally seeing an animal in your scope is a feeling I have not felt anywhere else.

Who is someone you look up to, and why?

I look up to my father, he has been a good example for me, and he has helped shape me into who I am today.
