Tiger of month for October is senior Isaac Harris. He plays football in the Fall, basketball in the Winter and participates in track during the spring. He does all of this while maintaining a 3.75 GPA. This may seem overwhelming but he says, “I don’t think it’s very hard. I treat sports as a privilege, if you don’t get good grades you can’t play, so I take pride in my school work [which] allows me to play.”
Harris does many things throughout the sports seasons. In basketball he is varsity
point guard, during football he starts varsity as either wide receiver or cornerback, and in track he participates in four track events, running the 100 and 200 yard dash, the 4×100, and he does the long jump. When he’s not playing or in class, he does many other outdoor activities. “I go fishing, hunting, and play disc golf,” Harris reflected.
Isaac Harris has been playing both football and basketball since 3rd grade and has been in track since 4th grade. “Whatever sport I’m in the season for, I treat as my favorite,” he
said. He is also an avid leader throughout all his teams and towards his fellow classmates. “With all of my teams I’m a vocal leader. I get the guys or team pumped up by saying chants, or even just talking to them one on one. Leading by example is a big part too that I like to do,” Harris recalled.
Harris plans on going to college but is undecided about which school. He stated, “College
right now is undecided for me at the moment [and I’m] just waiting to see the offers I can get to go play sports at the colleges.”
Harris is an incredible senior athlete and will be missed next year when he graduates. He is a great example of a leader in our school athletics and academics. He has much
advice to give to incoming freshmen but most importantly he believes that underclassmen should know, “Always be responsible! Responsibility in high school is needed every day.” Isaac Harris is doing an outstanding job in all his classes and on his teams. We should all follow his brilliant example of a good student and a good athlete.
