Six games left. Six games for Los Alamitos High School Football to show their skills. 

On the eve of their match against Damien High School, we thought we'd feature another varsity player profile.

This time it's our first reader-submitted profile.

Favorite thing about football: Being a part of something … being a part of (the) team and the fun memories from it, especially coming home with a win.

Any college your considering attending? The University of Washington sounds good because I have a lot of family in that state. But there are a few others I would love to check out.

Game you're looking forward to the most:  I’m looking forward to seeing all of you at the CIF Championship!

Any challenges you've faced in the past year as you prepared for the season? I had shoulder surgery from an injury that happened at the end of last season. Recovery and physical therapy took some time, so it so it feels good to be back on the field.
