Enthusiastic sophomore Storm Evans stays involved at LGHS, consistently bringing his positive attitude to all that he does. The Los Gatos native immerses himself in his coursework, especially ones that produce and gather digital media. Also involved in athletics at LGHS, Evans is a member of the Boys Varsity Hockey Team, as well as the Junior Varsity Football Team. While new to football, Evans has participated in hockey for seven years prior to joining the high school team. Cat lover, fun enthusiast, and brother to LGHS senior Alex Evans, you can always find him with a smile on his face and a passion for what he does.
This year, Evans filled his schedule with a rigorous mix of courses. After taking Multimedia Journalism during freshman year and finding lots of value in it, he decided to enroll in Digital Photography for his second year here at Los Gatos. He explained, “I really enjoyed the media aspect of Multimedia, so I thought it would be fun to try something similar this year like Digi Photo.” Out of all of his courses, he detailed how Digi Photo is his favorite due to the creative freedom that students have in the class. In addition to Digi Photo, he is also taking Geometry, Chemistry, World History, Honors English, and Spanish 3.
Outside of the classroom, you can find Evans on the ice tearin’ it up, or on Helm Field here on campus. Evans first began playing hockey when he was around eight years old. “I started playing at a super young age, and I have loved the sport ever since. I had a lot of friends who did it, and my dad used to play in college.” Currently, Evans plays for both the school Varsity and JV hockey teams, adding on to whichever team is most in need of an aggressive wing. Evans proudly expressed that the team is off to a great start, stating that “we’ve won most of our games. I think we are going to make it to the playoffs. We have a lot of good people and a lot of games.”
Evans is new to the LGHS JV football team this year, and he is thrilled to be a part of this year’s squad. After regretting not joining his freshman year, he is excited for the fun sophomore season that is ahead of him. Evans plays both receiver and corner, and no matter which position he is in, he gives the other team a run for their money. Similar to hockey, Evans had nothing but glowing reviews for the team’s upcoming season, and is looking forward to playing (and winning) the next few games.
There is no doubt that Evans is a force to be reckoned with, whether it is in the classroom, on the field, or on the ice hockey rink.
