Model to follow: My brothers, Reiley and Blake. “I had the opportunity to play high school football with Blake, my freshman and sophomore year. He was the captain of the football team, as well as one of the captains of Duchesne’s House System. This allowed me to see true leadership on and off the field. He taught me leadership skills that I will remember for the rest of my life. Reiley is another of my role models because she taught me to push myself to be the best student I can be. She showed me through her own actions that if you want something enough, you will have to work for it. Reiley and Blake have taught me that dedication and perseverance are the only way I can achieve my goals. I look at both of them and I am so proud that I can call them my family ”.
