Athlete of the Quarter - John Higgins



Career Aspirations
John wants to save the world basically. Travel all over, engineer stuff, meet people and help people. There are tons of non-profits in other countries that would be really cool to work with. In route to that, I’d like to get involved in sustainable energy and learn a lot more about medical stuff.

Achievements
John was awarded with the Collegiate Water Polo Association’s First Team All-Conference recognition for the Southwest Division this season, his second time earning an All-Conference recognition.
John has an incredible work ethic; he attended every practice during our season and did additional conditioning to ensure he could compete at the highest level.

Fun Fact
John would like to be Clint Eastwood in one of the old spaghetti westerns.
