Ethan Leoni has been attending Ascension since PreK3. He is involved in football, basketball, track, YoungLife, Music Review Club and National Honor Society. He excels in the classroom and is always on top of his studies. Ethan loves to hunt and fish during his free time. He fishes out of Venice and hunts in the deep woods of Lake Charlo. He said one of his favorite memories this summer was attending Capernaum. He met so many new friends on this trip and he says he “couldn’t be more thankful.” He met his best friend named Kevin on this trip. Ethan says “Kevin Cornclue is from Lafayette, Louisiana and every single day, I helped him jump off the diving board because he was terrified.” 

On the football team, Ethan plays offense and defense. When he’s on offense, he plays running back, and when he is on defense, he plays defensive end.  All the friendships he built during the football season are very special to him, and the things he enjoys most are the “team chem meetings.” Ethan is very excited to be staring his senior year.
