Two-sport athlete, Tate Rico, has played football and baseball for as long as he can remember. Rico started playing baseball at age five and football at age seven. Now a senior at Campus High School, Rico excels in both sports and loves playing with this group of teammates.
“What I love most about my team and teammates is that we all consider ourselves our own family and that we can fight through any adversity that is put in front of us,” said Rico. “Our expectations for this season is to have a winning record and put ourselves on the radar for a playoff run and show our capability and talent that many people don’t believe we have.”
Returning to school and to the field was a nice moment for Rico as a senior.
“I’m very excited to return to school mainly because it’s my senior year and I don’t want to miss out on any of it. This year I feel like my competitive drive is stronger than it’s ever been. And it’s given me an edge to not just work harder on the field but in the classroom and weight room as well,” said Rico.
The has signed with Butler County CC to play baseball next year and his plan is to study Wildlife Science. But before he makes the move to the next level, Rico is ready to enjoy every aspect of being a senior at Campus HS.
“The best part of being a student at Campus is that you are very welcomed by all teachers and it gives a safe environment to everybody. Being able to trust my teachers and my peers helps me stay more focused in the classroom. The energy that the school brings is amazing.”
