    Blake Hepburn lives for the great outdoors

    When he is not scoring goals on the soccer field, Blake Hepburn, senior, is busy studying for his advanced placement classes and enjoying the great outdoors.

    Hepburn has been playing soccer since he was a kid and now plays on the Varsity Boys Soccer Team.

    “Soccer is just a great way for me to relax and have fun with friends.” Hepburn said.

    Although he favors outdoors, some of his favorite things include current events, which is one of the reasons he joined Amplifier.

    “I always like to know what is going on in news and that is one of the reasons I joined Amplifier.” Hepburn said “It is good to know what is going on in the community.”

    “I really enjoy doing things outdoors, such as fishing and hiking and camping. I was able to do a lot of that over the summer,” Hepburn said.  “When I am older, I would love to live in Oregon. The beauty here is amazing and that is what I really love about it.”

    After he graduates from high school, Hepburn is looking to attend a schools such as the University of Washington and Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. Hepburn is not quite sure of what he wants to major in, but can see a major of political science in his future.

    “Political science would be a good major because it has a lot to do with current events and that would be fun for me because I like to know what is going on in the world.” Hepburn said. “After college, maybe I could become a lobbyist, but we’ll see in the future. Maybe I might still be playing soccer.”

    About the Contributor
    Madeline Marshall, Amplifier Athletics Editor
    One of the few seniors to work on The Amplifier all four years of high school, Madeline Marshall has a passion for journalism that started at a young age. She had an excellent role model to look up to. “I was inspired by my aunt and have grown up watching her as a news anchor on TV,” Marshall said. Her aim to follow in her aunt’s footsteps landed her the Athletics Editor’s position on The Amplifier’s staff.   With college less than a year away, Marshall has yet to make up her mind on her final destination. “I was having a panic attack because I don’t know where I’ll be next year,” Marshall said. If she had to choose right now though, she would probably go to Gonzaga University. “Wherever I end up, I see myself doing some kind of broadcast journalism,” Marshall said.   After college, Marshall wants to follow her aunt’s legacy and continue journalism. “I want to eventually be a sideline reporter and either a sports anchor or an athletic media administrator for a professional or college program,” Marshall said. She enjoys watching and talking about college sports because she grew up around it in her life.   Marshall has developed close relationships with the staff members and will be missed when she graduates. Marshall said, “My favorite thing about Amplifier is the people because we have a really good relationship and work really well together. We are like a family,”
