Tell everyone about yourself?
I'm Mitch Owens and I'm from Collierville, TN. I am a freshman at Briarcrest Christian School and play football and run track. I play running back and wear #20 for the Saints,

What was your best game?
This season my best game so far was probably against one of our rivals, CBHS. I had two big touchdown runs,which were the first points their starting defense had allowed all year. Unfortunately we came up short in OT.

How do you make your team better?
I help my team by working hard and setting the tone in practice, in the weight room, and most importantly on the field. You can count on me to make something happen when the game is on the line.

Who is your favorite player? Why?
Tim Tebow- He is a great role model and a great player
Trent Richardson- He is a freak. In my eyes pretty much the perfect running back. I try to model my game off his combination of speed, power, and the ability to keep the play alive.

Why are sports/education important to you?
Sports are important because they teach you important skills for life and also keep you busy and out of trouble. Education is more important though because sports can't take you through life alone. You're only one play away from being done for life.

What do you want to do if sports don't work out?
In college I plan to play football if I can and get involved with the Air Force ROTC program. After that I hope to become a fighter pilot for the Air Force.

What advice can you give other student-athletes?
Most importantly, trust God with everything he throws at you. Also give your best effort at EVERYTHING. It all pays off eventually.

Tell everyone about yourself?
I'm from Arlington, Texas and I attend Sam Houston High School. I'm pretty big.  I'm 6'4 300 pounds.  I like to play alot of video games and I'm real competitive when it comes to video games. I don't like to lose.  I spend most of my free time with my friends just hanging out. I also have a twin brother named Alfredo Morales.  He is my best friend and we like to compete against each other on and off the field.

What is your favorite sport?
My favorite sport has always been football.  I've been playing all my life.  What I like most about football is just being on the field with my friends and just working together to achieve our goals.

How did you feel when you were named to the U.S. Army All-American game?
Being named to the U.S. Army All-American team is a big deal for me.  I remember watching the game on T.V when I was younger and I look forward to representing my high school(Sam Houston) and my college(Texas Tech) in the U.S. Army All-American game.

What are your goals as a football player?
My goal as a football player is to be the most physical and most nasty football player on the field.   I want to dominate the person lined up across from me and to do anything possible to put my team in the position to win.

Who is your favorite player? Why?
My favorite football player is Jeff Saturday,offensive center for the Colts, because he is strong and physical and because he is one of the smartest football players around.

What drives you to work hard?
What drives me to work hard is the success that comes down the road.  If you work hard now it will pay off in the future.

Why are sports/education important to you?
Sports to me are very important.  You can learn alot of life lessons by competing in a sport.   Education is also very important to me because I know that football won't last forever and that later down the road I will have to have a job that requires me to be educated.

What advice can you give other student-athletes?
Keep working hard even when you don't feel like it.   Hard work on the practice field will pay off Friday on the game field.
