Classroom Champions: Bosqueville's Tanner Sepulveda

BOSQUEVILLE, Texas (KWTX) Aside from being a two-way football player for the Bosqueville Bulldogs, Tanner Sepulveda will be adding tennis to a busy schedule that already includes basketball, baseball and track.

"His academics were first. So, he's a time manager," Bosqueville High School English teacher Debra Brown said. "He's very disciplined. I'm sure he's up very late at night getting all the things done, but he never leaves anything undone."

Sepulveda also participates in multiple activities away from sports.

"He's a PALS (member), he's in NHS, a senior leader on the football team," Brown said. "We have the little ones that come to our pep rallies on Friday. They look up to him, and they know who he is. He's always got time for them."

The FCA member also collected money for Hurricane Harvey victims and helped deliver those supplies. Now, he's focusing on the few weeks remaining in his high school football career.

"It felt like another junior year and felt like I was going through the motions until I started stepping on that football field," Sepulveda said. "Then it was like, 'Man, this is it. This is all I got left.'"
