    A little blurb: I attend Appomattox County High School. I have played football all my high school career and in 2015, we went undefeated and won the state championship for the 2A bracket. I enjoy being outside and at every possible moment I am in my kayak or wondering around outside. After high school, I want to join the U.S. Army, making me the third generation to join and serve in my family. I love studying history and working at Appomattox Court House NHP. It brings both nature and history together making it a very enjoyable experience.
