EE: What do you do in your free time?
AY: I hang out with friends, play video games and stuff like that.
EE: What is the most interesting thing that has happened to you at school?
AY: I don’t know. Probably going to the Technology Student Association, TSA, nationals.
EE: What do you plan to do after high school?
AY: I think I’m going to go to college to major in engineering. I’m not sure what field yet.
EE: How do you balance doing TSA and football at the same time?
AY: It’s tricky. Since TSA doesn’t do much this time of year, I put it on the table because I have football practice every night. I then get more involved with TSA in November.
EE: You are tied for having the highest grade point average in your class. How do you maintain high grades with everything that you do?
AY: The key is staying ahead of everything. I get my homework done first, after football practice, and try to get it done early so nothing can come up and surprise me at the last minute.
EE: What got you interested in TSA?
AY: When I was in seventh grade my engineer teacher got me interested in it when I was in an engineer class. Now I’ve been doing it for about four years.
EE: What got you interested in football?
AY: I can’t remember. I started doing it in sixth grade and this is my fifth year.
EE: What did you do to get into TSA Nationals.
AY: At TSA state I did Promo Graphics. You basically design an ad for an event at the national convention with photoshop and design techniques.
EE: What did you do at nationals?
AY: Well, it was in Washington D.C so we toured the monuments and smithsonian. I didn’t really do much. I worked with a video production team for the event. One thing I did that was really cool was compete in the CO2 Dragster Race.
EE: What was that like?
AY: I took the car I took to state there, and I didn’t really do well at state, so I tried to improve at nationals and I succeeded.
EE: What are your goals for football?
AY: To keep having good games and to just get better.
EE: What are your goals for TSA?
AY: To have another successful state trip.
