Hutchison, Price in Villa Grove Heritage spring sports senior spotlight

By Tony Hooker 
With the COVID-19 pandemic bringing all athletic competition to a halt, I thought it would be good to get to know the seniors who compete for Villa Grove, Heritage and VGH coop teams.

What’s your favorite memory of high school that didn’t occur in the classroom?

My favorite memories that didn’t occur on a regular basis are spontaneously running around with a camera to different events. Whether that be golf meets hours away, homecoming festivities, P.E. tournaments, or random senior events (I took lots of these kinds of pictures when I was in 6th and 7th grade). 

What’s your favorite class?

My favorite class was Business with Mrs. Beals, I truly feel like I learned and retained a truck full of information. Her teaching style also really connected to me as a student. 

What’s your favorite food?

My favorite food is the pork chop sandwich from the concession stand at the VG football games. I don’t know what makes it so good, but it is the best pork chop sandwich to ever exist. 

What are your post-graduation plans?

After graduation, I will attend Bradley University and earn a degree in Biomedical Sciences Pre-Med. 

What are you driving these days?

I drive a 2005 graphite Honda Accord, she has a sleek grey cloth interior and an amazing sunroof. Her name is Wanda, after the woman we bought the car from. 

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

In 10 years I would love to own a home on the East coast with my husband and a couple kids.  I will still be enrolled in a residency program at a hospital on my way to becoming a doctor. I will hopefully be starting to specialize in Neurosurgery, which is my ultimate career goal.

What is your favorite sports moment?  What’s the first thing that you see when visualizing that moment?

My favorite sports moment was when there were fourteen seconds left in the Cumberland game and Liam Barr threw a 66-yard touchdown pass to Keagan Patterson for the win. The first thing I visualize is the scoreboard change to 14-10. 

What’s your favorite memory of your team that doesn’t involve a game?

My favorite memory is when coach Heath Wilson gets us all together on Wednesdays and has team dinner at his house. It’s a great bond for us.

What are your post-graduation plans?

I am enlisted with the Navy where I will be an engineman.

When we can start going again, who do you have to have tickets to see in concert?

I would like to see Lil Uzi Vert

What’s your favorite restaurant?

My favorite restaurant is Beef and Boards, it’s an all you can eat buffet.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years?

I see myself in 10 years living a healthy life, working for Ameren.
