Quality Toyota Sports Spotlight: Evan Newman [UPDATED]Published 11:06am Thursday, October 3, 2013 Updated 4:57pm Wednesday, October 9, 2013
Like many students at Hillcrest, the school is a family tradition for Evan Newman, a senior receiver on the football team. On the field, Newman is joined by his younger brother and a cousin.
In his second year as a Comet, I talked with the senior about attending the school and what it’s like to have such a familiar connection with teammates.
Q: What is you favorite class?
A: I enjoy my Bible classes. And I like math and history.
Q: Do you have any idea what you will study next year in college?
A: I’m planning on criminal justice right now.
Q: What do you like about going to school at Hillcrest?
A: It’s a really great atmosphere. My family went to school here as well.
Q: What do you like to do outside of school?
A: I like to hunt and fish.
Q: Anything in particular?
A: Everything. Deer, duck, geese, basically all that.
Q: What was it like joining up on the football team last year?
A: I just enjoyed playing with the seniors last year. They taught me a lot. I remember the first game last year, getting a pass from Dalton (Tostenson) and catching it just above the opponents head. I’ll probably always remember that.
Q: What is one thing you’ll hope to remember from this year?
A: The relationships with the guys. I have a younger brother and a cousin on the team and I’ll remember playing with them for the rest of my life.
Q: What’s it like playing with your younger brother and your cousin?
A: It’s a lot of fun. I get to teach them stuff and sometimes they even out do me in practice. (Laughs)
