Nine Bishop Watterson seniors recently announced their intent to play sports in college.
The athletes reflected on their paths to college athletic programs and the support they received along the way.
“Bishop Watterson taught me to work hard on the field and in the classroom,” said Reed Abahazie. “The Catholic church’s teachings teach me to trust in God and, above all things, always put Him first in my life.”
“Bishop Watterson helped me develop not only as an athlete but more importantly as a student,” said Ryan Bibo. “Above all I am going to be a student athlete so the student part is just as important if not more important than the athlete part.”
“Over my four years playing soccer in high school I learned to stop and look at what I was taught in school about how to treat others and still not compromise my intensity,” said Bryan Luckscheiter.
“These teachings have proven to be beneficial not only in my athletic endeavors but also in my personal life.”
“I have developed an extremely strong work ethic at Bishop Watterson,” said Alessandra Margello. “My faith has given me the strength I needed to get me through the most challenging times. When things seem impossible I turn to God. Bishop Watterson has been a very strong and secure community for me.”
“Bishop Watterson helped me achieve this by pushing me academically,” said Andrea Regrut. “It also improved my work ethic by making me work harder in school.”
