Nick, a senior at Arlington High School, loves all facets of the sporting world. Currently, he plays an instrumental role in the ongoing dominance of the Arlington varsity tennis program and hopes to do the same in March for Coach Hunter and the track team. Off the courts, Nick also involves himself in other various opportunities on campus; he is currently in his fourth-year of Knowledge Bowl, quizzing every Monday afternoon. Fortunately for him, NHS meets on Thursdays rather than Mondays, adding to the hefty load Nick is supporting this senior year, including a demanding class schedule. Friday nights, on weeks when he isn't playing in the pep or marching band at football games, one might find Nick leisurely enjoying a hot can of soup or watching the Mariners. On Sundays, he maintains the sports trend, spending a whopping seven hours watching NFL RedZone and, most importantly, his beloved Seahawks. To further his childhood-enduring love of all things sports-related, Nick is pursuing a career in the field of sports analytics with his participation in A.P. Statistics. Look for Nick on your hallway commute and give him a wave or a smile!
