Chiefs of Santaluces: Jalen Wring

Richard Dye, Staff Writer

“The best moment of my life was when I got the news that I got moved up to Varsity Football. When I heard about it, I couldn’t believe it; it was crazy. Now I see dreams and opportunities that have opened up for me that I could never have imagined. I started football when I was 5 but I had a surgery that kept me from playing until I was 7. I practice everyday from 3 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. or sometimes to 6. I just have to keep working hard and staying focused on the field and in the weight room while keeping up with my school work as well. I try to go my hardest in every play and improve myself every time I’m on the field. Football has been such a big influence on my life and has set paths for me for my future. It’s not only a sport but a part of who I am.”
