News 3 Sports would like to congratulate our latest classroom champion Cody Ponzio. The Bryan High senior ranks 6th in this class.
Cody is a two-year member of the National Honor Society, Secretary of the Bryan High School Choir, a member of All Region Choir for three years, a Lector at St. Anthony's Catholic Church and helps with the Knights of Columbus charity.
"Cody is completely dedicated to anything he sets his mind to do. He gives 110%. He's extremely motivated and motivational. All the kids look to him as an example because he is so positive."
I think that his determination will help him to be successful in college and in whatever he decides to do after college. He doesn't give up on anything he starts and he encourages other kids to continue and push harder and work harder"
Athletically, Cody plays football and runs track. He won the Thor Award for the Vikings' game against A&M Consolidated.
"I think if you take Cody Ponzio and instill all his work ethic and his pride in the Vikings in every player we've ever had here, we'd probably be state champions every year. He's everything you could ask for as far as work ethic, and, like I said, his pride in being here is enormous. He is definitely a product of all the work he's put in over the course of the years."
"When our team looks for a leader, I wanna step out because I love being a leader, I love being the vocal leader because it shows that I'm one of those guys that's gonna be there for my teammates when they need it.
"I'm really proud of the way this year's going and I enjoy being a leader for my teammates and for my school as well."
Cody plans on attending Texas A&M after graduation.
Congratulations to Cody Ponzio of Bryan High School. This week's News 3 Sports Classroom Champion.
