What was your most memorable moment as being a student-athlete at OFHS?
One of my favorite memories was SkillsUSA at Columbus. I had a great time during the Robotics: Urban Search and Rescue competition with my partner, Manny, and we ended up placing third when we didn’t even expect it. The evening at Max & Erma’s was an adventure filled with laughs, and the trip back from Polaris to the track meet was the cherry on top.
What will you miss most about being a student-athlete at OFHS?
I’m definitely going to miss the people. I think I took for granted being able to walk in every day and see the faces of all those people that made the high school what it really was. It’s a bittersweet experience to move on from all of that.
Would you like to thank or recognize anyone who has assisted you along the way of your educational or athletic career?
I would have to recognize my teachers, especially Dr. Mercer, Mrs. Cumming, Mr. Novotny, and Mr. Vas. My counselors, Mrs. Palmison and Mrs. Caldrone, also deserve many thanks for their guidance throughout the years. Finally, I have to thank my family, because, without them, none of this would be possible.
Head Coach John Novotny’s Comments:
I have had the pleasure of working with Edmund in both the classroom and on the track. What impresses me the most about him is how well rounded he is and his burning desire to give his best efforts at everything he does.
Congratulations Edmund and the best of luck to you!
