September’s Tiger of the Month

By Katlyn LaPorte

For his numerous years of hard work and commitment to soccer, the Tiger of the month for September is senior Logan Kiefer.

Kiefer’s parents are Jaime and Tauna Kiefer. He has one younger brother, Troy. The family also has two dogs, Sunny and Aspen.

Kiefer started playing soccer when he was only three years old and has been playing ever since. His biggest supporters are his parents and his girlfriend, Elise.

According to Kiefer, the best parts about soccer season are the bus rides, team nights, and breaking records. The worst parts are conditioning and two-a-days.

“My goal for this season is to make it to the second round of state and beat our winning record from last year.”

“My favorite soccer memory is breaking the boys’ team winning record last year and Coach Ben getting kicked out of our game my sophomore year,” said Kiefer.

Kiefer wants to give a shout out to all of the SHS boys’ soccer team.

“My goals for the future in soccer are to play collegiately and coach,” said Kiefer.

Although soccer is his favorite sport, Kiefer also plays volleyball.

Soccer isn’t the only thing that Kiefer is good at, he is also very intelligent and a very good student. He manages to play sports and still maintain a 4.0 GPA. He excels in mathematics and also really enjoys psychology. His dream would be to attend college in California.

Kiefer’s favorite things to do are spend time with friends and jam to music. His favorite foods are cupcakes (particularly red velvet) and ice cream. He loves the comedy show, Parks and Recreation. His favorite holiday is Thanksgiving because he is always eating. His fondest high school memory is going to New York City and Washington D.C. with Mrs. Cartwright and other Sterling High students the summer after my sophomore year.

“My advice for underclassmen: Don’t try to get called out for lunch during advisory with a large group of friends, the office staff doesn’t approve of it,” said Kiefer.

In ten years from now Kiefer sees himself laying on a beach in California for most of the week and then working as a neuroscientist for the other part of the week.
