As Bothell High School student-athletes are wrapping up their first season of sports, there have been two, Jackson Burnham (‘19) and Tia Potts (‘19), who have stood out this past month for their hard work and continuous effort.

Burnham, a varsity defensive end football player, has been playing since second grade. He conveyed that although this season has been a bit of a struggle, it has overall been memorable. Burnham’s personal goal this season is to continue improving on his technical skills; however, as a team, they aspire to win at state.

Since January, Burnham has been in the weight room and on the field daily in order to stay in shape throughout the season. He says his main motivation to do football has been that “football isn’t a game, it’s a life skill and it teaches you how to be a man.” His coach, Mr. Tom Bainter said, “he is a great kid and has improved greatly in the last few weeks.” Next year Burnham plans to attend Edmonds Community College where he will continue his education and be a part of the men’s basketball team.

Potts, a varsity volleyball player, is excited for the rest of the volleyball season. She has hopes that her team can work hard and be recognized as at least the second out of the top three in KingCo. Pott’s happily announced her team’s main focus this season is to “make it as far as they can, most likely state.” In order to keep in shape and be prepared for the season, she likes to workout at the gym and keeps up on practicing her skills. Potts is currently undecided on college, but has high hopes on attending a local university to continue her education.
