When he's not playing the violin in the school symphony, Andrew Posey making a bunch of racket on the tennis court for the Temple Wildcats.

"Tennis is an amazing sport," Posey said. "I found it the summer of sixth grade. I'd been playing soccer, so I switched to tennis, and it's been an incredible experience."

"I actually coached him in middle school," Temple soccer coach Robert Girard said. "His first day in tennis in seventh grade was also my first day coaching at Temple High School. I still remember him leading the pack of these middle school kids coming around the corner ready to go. That kind of energy and positive attitude has been here the entire six years I've known Andrew."

Andrew is on track to possibly being valedictorian of the Temple High School class of 2020. That's one of the reasons why he'll be attending the University of Texas in the fall.

"I'll be majoring in business management," Posey said. "I'm looking forward to going to Austin and being able to meet new people there, getting to work on business and learn about business management."

"He's just a wonderful type of kid to coach," Girard said. "(He's) one that's always going to do what you say, a kid that you never have to worry about grades, behavior and attitude, and it's truly been a blessing to be his coach for the past six years."
