Coaching the Cedar Park Bulldogs, a youth football team, senior Eric Skinner discusses the plays with the team. As part of his training company, Skinner Elite Training, Skinner develops the skills of the next generation of football players. “‘Next play’ mentality means if you make a mistake that’s okay,” Skinner said. “The play is over and move on. It’s not about if you make a mistake or not, it’s about how you react and recover from that one mistake.”

With green and white, senior Mckenna Lemons paints her picture of a splattered run over Plankton from ‘Spongebob’. She painted this in order to embrace her inner child even when she graduates high school and enters college. “I chose to paint Plankton because ‘Spongebob’ is one of my favorite shows,” Lemons said. “I felt that the splattered paint was humorous, as I would be parking on him every day, as if I ran over him.”

Senior Diego Salazar Lopez competes in the 50 yard butterfly on Nov. 5 at the Leander and Gateway Tri Meet, where he won fourth place out of 22 other boys. Salazar is one of the top swimmers in the boys division, and one of the qualifiers for the Texas Interscholastic Swim Coaches Association meet. Since freshman year, it feels that I have received more respect than how I was my previous years, more trust in the team, and more relaxed, Lopez said.
