If there’s one thing Luis wants people to know, is that he’s an easy person to talk to. Besides learning, Luis enjoys the social aspect of school when he gets to meet new people from different cultures. What he looks forward to about Beaverton High is playing football just like his brother who is currently a sophomore. Glad to have you in the community!

What Tony likes most about Beaverton is how nice the student body and staff are; it creates a really comforting and amazing environment at school.

Senior Blog: Reed Migaki

What I really loved about BHS is the community and friendships that I made through my 4 years. The thing I will miss most is the Friday night football games. Coming out and playing in front of the Beaverton community is something that I’ll never forget. I will also miss the brotherhoods that sports have given me. My favorite teachers that I will miss will be Ms. Ped and Mr. Kenis. Some advice I will give to the incoming freshmen next year is to not be afraid to go outside your comfort zone. Also, don’t be afraid to be the most spirited student at events. Some Prom advice I would give to next year’s seniors is to go all out and just have fun; you normally only have one opportunity to go. One of the best experiences I had at Beaverton would be our win against sunset to clinch a playoff spot. I played football all 4 years and baseball for 3. My final year I switched to lacrosse during the spring. I plan on going to PCC in the fall, and I’m planning on doing the EMT program and hopefully become a firefighter.

Football has always been my favorite sport. I love to watch, I love to analyze, and I absolutely love to play. One of my dreams that I’ve had ever since I was a kid was to play college football. I knew that that did not come easy, but I was willing to put in the work to fulfill my lifelong dream. My junior and senior seasons were spent in the weight room and on the field trying to get stronger and faster to increase my chances to play at the next level.

When the season started everything was going good and I was succeeding but then half way through the season I suffered from a season ending leg injury. In my mind I thought that I was done, I thought I would never play another down of football again, but, my teammates and coaches wouldn’t let me feel sorry for myself. Every single person on my team helped me keep my head high and focus on coaching the younger players.

After the season had ended and the all league awards were released I was surprised to see my name pop up not once, but twice winning 2nd-Team All-Metro Offensive Lineman and 3rd Team All-Metro Punter. A couple weeks after that a JUCO in Northern California named the College of the Siskiyous happened to like what they saw and told me that I would be a great addition to their defense. It is crazy for me to think that my childhood dream is about to come true but it definitely isn’t a surprise that this is happening, I put in the work, and it payed off.
