Jose Lara, or better known by his nickname Luigi, is a member of our varsity football team and was recently nominated as a court finalist for this year’s homecoming, You’re Timeless to Me.
“I think I just got a lot friendlier and mature since freshman year, but I never thought I’d be homecoming court finalist. It felt amazing to have a chance at something like this,” says Jose Lara.
Since freshman year, Jose has been part of the football team and currently is a four year member. He is also publicity chair for ALAS. “I joined ALAS to be involved and meet more people.” Lara has a charismatic personality and hopes that more people will know that he is more friendly than he appears.
His advice for underclassmen is “Go all out before it’s too late, but enjoy high school.” Lara will miss all the friends and teachers the most, who were helpful to him during his high school career. He hopes that he will “get good grades in all of his classes and leave something memorable.” Lara wants to shout out to all his friends and wonderful girlfriend Mariah Puente.
