Nate was nominated best of class in four categories: Class Leader, Best Legs, Best Dressed, and Teacher’s Pet. Nate’s favorite movie is Anchorman and his choice for music is anything by Kenny Chesney or George Strait. His favorite color is blue and the best book he’s ever read is A Season on the Mat. He loves dumplings and the class he most looks forward to is single survival. Nate also never misses an episode of “Army Wives”. The song most likely to be playing in his MP3 is “Take It on the Run” by REO Speedwagon.
Nate’s future plans are getting a degree and wrestling in college and someday competing internationally in freestyle. In ten years he hopes to be married and have hunting dog. He would also like to coach college wrestling.
The one person Nate would like to spend a day with is his uncle Dave so they could hunt and hang out. His finest memory of high school was winning the state championship in wrestling last year. His words of wisdom to underclassmen show his true colors. He says, “There are six million reasons for failure but not a single excuse.”
