Scholar Athlete Recipient

David Cortez

I am a humble and hardworking young man that has put my all not only into athletics, but my academics as well being ranked 4th in my class. I have asspirations to one day become a lawyer so that I can help to defend those that are not able to defend themselves. This vision comes from seeing those in my community with unfortunate circumstances being taken away from their loved ones due to only a small mistake. I am stuck in between a revolving door of school work and athletics, but it’s the hope of one day being a part of something bigger than myself that drives me each and every day.
