Five questions with Bedford North Lawrence senior Rex Lovell
Sport: baseball; Career choice: power lineman; College: lineman school
Question 1: What lessons did playing high school sports teach you?
Lovell: High school sports taught me a lot of lessons, one of the best ones – I think, for me at least – is time management. With school work and practice, you have to be able to make time for both.
Question 2: Who has been your role model?
Lovell: My parents are always good role models, but I think one that stands out most to me is my construction teacher Matt Olson. He has taught me a lot, not only about construction but about being a grownup and adulting.
Question 3: Can you describe your emotions when the baseball season was cancelled?
Lovell: When the season was cancelled, I can honestly say I shed a few tears. All of us seniors sat down with Coach Callahan a few times and we had set some great goals for the season, with the ultimate one of winning the sectional championship. I definitely lost that closure, but I believe all things happen for a reason.
Question 4: What pointed you toward your chosen career path?
Lovell: I’m choosing to be a power lineman. Nothing or no one really swayed me to choose this path. I’ve just always thought it was interesting.
Question 5: As the restrictions are lifted, who’s the first person you wanted to see?
Lovell: I definitely will be going to see both of my grandmas. With everything going on, I’ve been staying away from them, but I will definitely be paying them a visit.
