Mario Lopez isn’t the ordinary large football player. When you see a big player, he can intimidate people and some might imagine that he is a loud and flashy player.

Lopez plays varsity football and has a spot in the starting O-line. He has earned the respect of his peers over his two years playing at varsity level.

But Lopez’s peers respect him for how humble and quiet he is. Mario Aparicio, a fellow football player, said “He is a get the job done player that never slacks off.” Lopez helps his peers getting better on and off the field. His impact on the team has been huge thanks to his leadership and consistent will to get better and to give it his best. Jesus Torres is inspired by Lopez’s will to play, and it encourages Torres to get better.

Lopez’s life has changed thanks to playing football. He feels that his actions represent the team and the school. His family has shown support and they have seen his dedication because they know how tough football is, and being on the team requires lots of time and effort. His family always goes to his games and they are very active in the booster club.

Lopez mention that one day if he is offered a better position at a higher level that he would be honored. Lopez said, “to me playing at a higher level is a check that i can put on my bucket list.”  Lopez would not even think twice about  taking the opportunity to play in college and eventually become a pro.
