My name is Michael Leonard and I am a senior at Moeller high school. I come from a relatively large family. I have three siblings. My older brother Jake, who is a senior at Indiana University and a 2016 grad from Moeller, my younger brother Nick, who is an 8th grader at St. Margret of York, and my Older sister Caroline, who is a sophomore at Miami. I also have two dogs; Striker and Moe.
I have many different hobbies and they all depend on the season we are in. In the winter, I enjoy watching college hoops and playing rec basketball with my friends. My favorite college team to watch is Ohio State. One thing you should know about me is that I am a die hard Buckeye fan. I know everything there is to know about Ohio State basketball and football. Another thing you should know is that my rec basketball team is extremely talented. We got cheated out of the tournament last year, but we’ll be back next year to take home the championship t-shirts.
Anyway, in the summer I enjoy going to White Rock and golfing. Even though I’m not the best golfer, and I don’t exactly have the stones to do a back flip off the thirty-foot jump at White Rock, I still have a good time.
In the spring, I like playing basketball with my little brother outside, especially right around the end of March and early April, when the NCAA tournament is going on.
My favorite season, however, is fall because its football season. I play football for Moeller, which I love because it is a big part of my life and I get to be with all my friends. Another important reason I love fall is because of college football. It is literally my favorite thing to watch in the world. I remember when I was 11 years old I used to have my dad wake me up at 8 am on every Saturday so I could watch College Gameday.
Some other things I am involved in at Moeller specifically are football, pastoral ministry as a Eucharistic minister, and I also serve as a house captain for Zaragoza.
My favorite subject in school is Math because I like to solve problems and I think its satisfying to finish a difficult problem. I do enjoy writing as well, but only when I get to write about something that I am interested in. This semester I plan on writing about sports and other things that interest me. Next year I want to go to college at either Ohio State, Indiana, or any other school (I really haven’t narrowed it down to well). At whatever school I end up at, I plan on studying either business, law, or economics. (Again I really haven’t narrowed it down and have no clue what I am going to do next year).
Anyway, that’s a little bit about me. I am looking forward to a great semester this year in journalism and I hope you guys enjoy reading what I write.
