Student-Athlete: Chance Muller
School: Fruita Monument
Favorite subject: I have always been a real science kid.
Future: I am looking at Mesa but I am still undecided.
What’s your major?: Undecided, but I am looking a little bit at veterinary schools, maybe engineering.
Why?: My dad has a biology degree and my grandpa is a vet, so it is kinda in the family.
Why veterinary school?: I like being around animals and I have always enjoyed watching my grandpa work on animals.
Smart-Jockspeak: I have had to work to keep a balance with school and sports. I knew I wasn’t going to make a living on basketball, so my parents prioritized putting school first and when I had free time, I could go play basketball.
