Agounke: In school, I’m involved with both football and track.

Star: What are you most looking forward to during your senior year?

Agounke: The stuff I’m looking forward to most during senior year is making memories with my friends.

Star: How does it feel going 11-0 this football season?

Agounke: Going undefeated this season has been a dream come true. Everyone has been looking forward to the state championship since the preseason, and it’s great that we’ve made it this far.

Star: If you could give underclassmen advice, what would it be?
