Classroom Champion - Caden Cox

News 3 Sports would like to congratulate our latest Classroom Champion, Caden Cox. The Leon High School Senior has a 4.1 GPA, and is currently ranked number one in his class.

“I think that Caden is definitely self motivated. He's not in it for necessarily the awards and the accolades that might be; in terms of trophies and things like that. It's totally an intrinsically motivated thing for Caden. He wants to be the best. And if he isn't, he's mad. That's just who he is, and he tries to do better each time.” Deanne Schroeder, Teacher.

Caden plays Tennis for the Cougars and he's also a member of the Cheerleading squad. He also serves as a manager for the Football and Basketball teams at Leon and for his play on the Tennis court, Caden has been a 3 time District Champion and a Regional Qualifier. Outside of sports, Caden is involved in the National Honor Society, Fellowship of Christian Students, One Act Play, UIL Academics, Public Speaking, and he currently serves as President of his Chapters FFA and in his spare time, Caden likes spending time with family and friends, and watching TV.

“Caden leads by example. He participates in multiple sports, multiple activities. Anything he can be in or help anybody; he's always helping everybody. He never fails to help his friends. Just a great leader.Vocally he's kind of quiet, but he's always there if you need him. All you got to do is ask and he'll be there.” Danny Carnline, Coach.

“Everything that I've done since; freshman year of high school...I've always said that I'm preparing myself for tomorrow. So everything that I've done today I do it for tomorrow and that's what really motivates me. Is the fact that I have to make sure that if I want to reach my goals, and do what I want to do for the rest of my life and be good at it. I have to do it today and right now.” says Cox.

After High School, Caden plans on attending college and wants to major in Political Science.

Congratulations to Caden Cox of Leon High School. This week’s News 3 Sports Classroom Champion!
