Travis and his lacrosse team

A: I play lacrosse, hunt, and fish. Lacrosse is really fun and this year will be my 4th year playing it. I deer and turkey hunt. During deer season I bow hunt and rifle hunt. This is my first year bowhunting for deer. I like deer hunting more than turkey hunting, but they are both really fun. The thing I like about deer hunting is that you always see something. It may not be the big buck that you are hunting for but it’s something. The main reason why I like turkey hunting is because I am with my dad. I love fishing too. I ice fish and boat fish. I would take ice fishing over boat fishing any day. I have caught my biggest walleye ice fishing. It is way more relaxing than boat fishing.

Q: Opinion on… Megan Nelson?

A: Megan is an incredible person. She is very caring and always there for others. She will put a smile on your face everyday. If you ever need help she is right there to help you. She welcomes others with open arms. She is very funny but also serious when she needs to be. She is extremely smart and helps me with homework whenever I need it. All around she is a great person.

Q: Who is your best friend?

A: Andrew Tavale

Q:Do you have any big dreams for after high school?

A: I don’t know. 

Q: Favorite song or artist?

A: Khalid. I have just always listened to him.

Q: How was the switch from middle school to high school?

A: The switch from middle school to high school was a huge switch. You go from being the oldest students in the school to the youngest. You have a lot more homework than you did in middle school. I like how we are able to choose most of our classes unlike middle school. You can pick classes that you are actually interested in instead of getting put in classes that you dislike. 

Q: Do you have any advice for other high school students?

A: Don’t procrastinate. I’ve learned that one the hard way.
