One thought on “Around The Bullhorn Athlete Of The Week- Ali Diaz

  1. Hello,
    My name is Lee Senter and I too am a varsity tennis player at Mac. I am writing to inquire why I was not chosen for athlete of the week. Not only am I more athletic than Ali Diaz and better than him at every aspect of the game, I am extremely humble, a rare quality in superior individuals like myself. I hope that you will read this and immediately write an article about me that showcases my successes on the court, in the classroom, and at just being plain awesome.
    Yours truly,
    Lee Senter
