Congratulations to our FIRST PLHS Student Athlete of the Month - Jose Resendiz
As a captain of our Cross Country and Track & Field teams, Jose Resendiz has always motivated his teammates, mentored his peers, and shown an awesome amount of Pointer Pride. Last May, however, Jose did something incredible. As a silly gimmick, Jose made a t-shirt with Coach DeLong's head attached to the body of a dinosaur. The fitting subtitle under the image: "Delongosaurus".
This t-shirt was an immediate hit amongst the students and, as a result, Jose's peers quickly started asking for their own. Seeing an opportunity, Jose made a bunch and sold them to anyone who wanted one. At the end, he had made a profit of over $270!
While the normal teenager would take this money and use it towards personal food, clothes, entertainment, etc....Jose did something incredible. He walked up to Coach DeLong and said "I would like to donate all of this money to PLHS Track and Field and it's coaching staff."
Jose donated the money and did not keep a penny for himself.
Jose Resendiz represents what it means to be a Pointer. He is a genuinely fun, happy, and giving young man. We are extremely luck to have him at Point Loma High School and proud to announce him as our first "Student Athlete of the Month"
