Senior Spring Spotlight: CALE BUNCH

Five questions with Bedford North Lawrence senior Cale Bunch

Sport: track; Career choice: business management; College: Indiana or St. Francis

Question 1: What lessons did playing multiple high school sports teach you?

Bunch: Playing multiple sports taught me a lot of things. Responsibility, how to be a good teammate, how to be a leader. A lot of good traits I will have to have later on in life.

Question 2: Who has been your role model?

Bunch: LeBron James has always been a huge role model of mine, just how he’s a great athlete and has all the fame and fortune he could ever ask for and still continues to do amazing charity work and put many troubled high school students through school and some into college.

Question 3: Can you describe your emotions after track was cancelled, and did that hinder your preparations for college football?

Bunch: When I found out track was cancelled, I was pretty bummed out because that was my last chance to hang out every day with some of my best friends, kids I’ve played football with and kids I’ve grown up with. So I was pretty upset. However, it didn’t hinder my training. Before it was cancelled, (Jacob) Hobbs and I would lift before practice. Now I just prepare for summer and fall at a home gym.

Question 4: What will you miss most about high school?

Bunch: I will definitely miss seeing my best friends every day. Seeing all the teachers that have meant so much to where we are now. And just seeing all the employees.

Question 5: As the restrictions are being lifted, who was the first person you wanted to see?

Bunch: I want to see all my friends and be able to go to grandpa’s house and just chill out with him. I like hanging out with him. It just sucks we had to stay so far apart.
