Bill Mancebo's Player Spotlight
This week the player spotlight finds Jericho Herzog.
Herzog, now 18, plays varsity basketball for the Fremont Christian School (FCS) Warriors team. A basketball player since fourth grade, this athletic young man plays baseball and soccer, too.
As a baseball player Jericho covers left field and, with six years of soccer savvy, he's an effective left defender; playing those sports also for the FCS Warriors.
It's no coincidence that being immersed in sports makes it easy for Herzog to stay in shape and the fact that he carries PE as a favorite subject. As he puts it, "I simply like to be physical each and every day."
Both athletic and popular, Herzog was selected as the FCS athlete of the year in 2009 and also sports the FCS 2010 homecoming king crown.
Currently in his senior year at FCS, Jericho feels that his instructor Mr. White is a positive daily influence and perfect role model for him. His greatest influence was his dad who passed away in October, 2008. Since then he maintains his father's tradition of hard work combined with superior ethics. It will all pay off when Herzog meets the grade to the important goal of becoming a firefighter someday soon.
What little time is left in the day for Jericho usually gets spent hanging out with his friends, playing video games and watching sports; or maybe even playing a little more basketball.
When the hunger hits his first choice is usually pepperoni pizza after that it's a toss-up between a steak or chicken dinner. The optimum dessert would be brownies, ice cream or angel food cake. And those three can be served up in any which way or order.
