Goooooo Hornets!

Roswell High School athletes share goals for the season, fave spots and sage advice to younger students

McKay Legg, Senior, Flag Football 

My personal goals for this school year are to maintain good grades, stay active in my high school and community clubs, and to be accepted into Auburn University. My goals for the flag football team are to help the team be well-prepared and work hard, as well as to build a team that can make a run in the playoffs. In Roswell, my favorite restaurant is Zest. Order the fried calamari. The advice I would give to a younger player wanting to play flag football is to always hustle. Hustle beats talent, when talent doesn’t hustle.  

Brinley Dye, Senior, Cheerleading

One of my biggest goals for this season is to help lead my team and be a role model for the younger girls. I want to do everything I can to uplift the team and help us further develop our culture. My favorite place to celebrate after an exciting Friday night lights is Taco Mac with my friends! The advice I would give to anyone starting cheer is to connect with your teammates. No matter what’s going on outside of cheer, your teammates are always there for you!

Emma McDonald, Junior, Track 

My goals for this year's season is to not only build upon what I’ve already learned through training, my coaches, and other teammates, but also to make improvements that I can personally focus on to become a better person and overall athlete. I’m hoping this year I can, with the help of my teammates, take some of the Roswell girls relays to state. Not only that, but I strongly believe we can break another school record. My family and I like to go to Marlows. I love the Wagyu burger! The advice I would give to any upcoming athletes that are looking to start track would be just to have fun. There are so many bonds and friendships made. This sport teaches you a lot about how to stay mentally and physically strong. It’s not always easy and takes a lot of work and commitment in the season and the offseason to perform at your best, but it’s worth it!

Thomas Methvin, Senior, Varsity Golf Team

My goal this year is to consistently shoot under par in my final high school season. For the team, I’d like to help the team go all the way to the state championship. And, my academic goal is to make the Principal’s List. To unwind, I enjoy going to Moe’s Southwest Grill with my teammates and my family loves Spiced Right Rib House for holidays and other special occasions. To younger athletes, I would say, be patient and work hard through rough patches of your career.

Caroline Jenacova, Senior, Cheerleading

My personal goals for this season involve keeping a positive mindset for myself and my team. It is normal to have doubts during this sport, but we will be physically prepared. The hard part is within our own thoughts, therefore staying positive will be beneficial for all. After a long Friday night game, in my opinion, ice cream is the perfect way to celebrate. Luckily there is a Bruster's within three minutes of Roswell High School!
