Supporting the Fighting Irish by Tim Coyne.

Hi, my name is Tim Coyne and I am a senior at Moeller High School. Right now, I am in Mr. Jackson’s journalism class. The reason I decided to take this class was because I want to be able to write something that people can read and say, “wow, this is good! This kid knows what he is talking about.”

To know me you must know where I came from. It all starts about 30 minutes down the road in a small town called Marrow, OH.  It’s what most people around here call the country. Where else you can be on a two-lane road and look out on both sides of the road and just see fields of corn all over? Growing up I was taught the importance of family and how to work with others to accomplish something. I come from a big family I am the second oldest out of five. I have one older sister who is 23 and I have a younger sister who is 17 a younger brother 15 and another brother who is 13.

My favorite classes at Moeller must be my math classes and my English classes. My hobbies are hiking, fishing, and canoeing. I love being outdoors in nature where you can breathe in fresh air. I also am a big traveler and trying new things. I always like a challenge I believe if you are not challenging yourself or out of your comfort zone you are not living your life to the fullest. I enjoy reading all the time, but I am picky on what I am reading. I do like the Harry Potter books but they are not my go to books. I like reading books that I am going to learn something form it. My favorite book I read this summer is the Mind Gym. It’s a collection of many different athletes who have been at the top level and they all had to train their minds. They had to be mentally tough. Most kids in high school like me think that being at the top level is the coolest thing ever, but the way to get there is to be physically fit and able to play at that level but after reading this book it has taught me that you mind has a huge factor that plays a big role in your ability to compete. It has made me think about how I train my mind and what I do to help me be in the right mind set to compete.

I am looking forward to my senior year at Moeller high school and also, I am looking forward for you to read some of my stories.
