Student athlete of the month Luke Stegall

Luke Stegall
Grade: 12
Sport: Cross Country
Reason nominated: Stegall led the team to a win at the Doc Acklin Invite
Nominated by: Jason Retz

What is your favorite class?
I’ve always enjoyed math because it comes easy to me and the teachers here at SJO are great at what they do.

What are your plans after high school?
I plan on attending East Mississippi Community College and then to Mississippi State University. I want to major in architecture.

What is the best thing about being a student athlete?
I like knowing that I can take pride in being a SJO athlete because the reputation of this school is great. I have overheard people outside of the SJO community talk good things about it. That makes me proud to represent it.

What is the most difficult part of being a student athlete?
Taking a loss. I don’t like to lose. It’s never good to lose and even though everyone experiences it, I don’t like to hear the words “SJO isn’t a threat.” I want the SJO cross Country team to be seen as one of the best.
