Tyler Watson has his eye on going to college as a pre-med student

ASOTIN, WA - This Asotin Panther is active in sports, excels in school and has a 4.0 GPA.

His name is Tyler Watson, senior at Asotin High School and this week's Academic All-Star.

"They make sure you know what you're doing, they make sure to keep you on track," said Tyler. "They're tough classes and they keep you on point."

And staying on point isn't easy with a rigorous high school schedule, running on the cross country team and playing for the school basketball team. However he makes it all happen.

"You just find whatever time you can, whether it's bus rides, whether it's time before practice even starts," said Tyler. "And you know whenever it's done, right after practice, head home and do it."

And it's the hard work now that will make it easy for Tyler to reach his ultimate goal in the future.

"Go to college and then I want to be a pre-med student," said Tyler.

However for now Tyler is just enjoying his last year of high school.

"I live day by day, don't let it fly by like everybody says it does," said Tyler.

Congratulations, Tyler, you're this week's Academic All Star.
