- What sports did you participate in during your high school career, and for how long?
I participated in 4 years of varsity soccer, 4 years of varsity cross country, 4 years of varsity track then 2 years of basketball.
- What is your favorite Vermilion sports moment?
My favorite soccer memory was the atmosphere of our game my junior season against Amherst when the game was close the entire 80 minutes and I scored two goals and the feeling of celebration after each goal was electrifying. My favorite cross country moment is very hard to choose from as I have a vast amount of memories within this team. Although my teammate I’ve ran with since my sophomore year and created a lot of memories with (Luke See) and I made it to Regionals my senior year, one memory (other than that) I would like to share is the meet at BGSU my senior year as Coach Ladd got yelled at several times for being on the course while we were racing and then took the team out for pizza afterwards, I felt as if this was an early turning point in the season that helped our team grow much closer together and this lead to an amazing season to end my high school career with.
- What other activities do you participate in besides sports?
I participated in one year of peer leadership and then my senior year I enrolled in career capstone and was then able to leave school early and go to work as a lifeguard at Mercy.
- What are your plans after graduation?
I plan to attend Kent State Fashion program where I will be majoring in Fashion Design.
- What is one thing about your high school career that you wish you knew as a Freshman and you want the younger athletes to know?
Participate in the sports that you enjoy. Work your butt off but enjoy yourself to the highest possible amount. Live in the moment because it really does fly by and whether you believe it or not one day you’ll miss the hell out of saturday mornings with some of funniest kids you’ll meet and saturday nights under the lights with the boys you’ve played with since you were 10.
Head boys track and field coach Dave Domonkos had this to say about Isaac: Isaac is a 4 year letter winner in track. Isaac has done a tremendous job on the track and been a huge part of the boy’s distance program over the last 4 years running the 1600, 3200 and being a key part of the 4 x 800 Relay Team. His leadership will be greatly missed as he led by both example as he was always one of the hardest working athletes on the track as well as helping push his teammates to be better each and every day. Both of these showed as he is greatly respected by all his teammates which is the ultimate compliment. Isaac will be greatly missed and we know that Isaac will go on to do great things as he moves into the next chapter of his life.
