Editor’s Note: The Daily Sentinel Student-Athlete of the Week is selected by the school’s athletic director. Fruita Monument’s Pat Noland selected TJ Pollock, who has a 3.952 grade-point average. The honor will rotate among the four School District 51 high schools.

Student-Athlete: TJ Pollock

School: Fruita Monument

Sport: Baseball

GPA: 3.952

Future: I want to play baseball in college so I’m looking at schools. If (I don’t play baseball), I’ll probably state in state.

What’s your major? Journalism

Why? I like reporting in the sports area. I write for the school newspaper.

How do you persevere on the really cold days? You have to really concentrate hard. You remind yourself why you’re out here.

Favorite subject: I enjoy writing (AP Literature). We do a lot of writing, a lot of reading, a lot of essays.

Smart-Jockspeak: “In AP Lit, you pick an issue and let your pen write out your feelings.”
