Aaron Monsivaiz goes out and gets what he wants.
The three-way stud at The Woodlands Christian Academy set out to be the quarterback of the Warriors after the 2018 season. Mission accomplished.
Did we mention that he's also an all-everything linebacker on defense and a talented long-snapper?
"I was rotating with another guy last season at QB, but was mostly playing on defense," the senior said. "I was getting some reps and doing well but I just broke out at linebacker. I was fine with that and just did whatever the team needed.
"After the season, I just had it in my mind that I was going to be the starting QB and linebacker as a senior. I put in the work in the offseason and during 7-on-7 and it paid off."
Monsivaiz has helped lead the Warriors to a 4-0 record entering this weekend's game with Bay Area Christian. He's thrown for 450 yards and nine scores while rushing for 125 yards and another two TDs.
"I'm a pro-style quarterback – my first option is always to throw the ball," he said. "When I'm forced to run, I have more of a linebacker's mentality and run over people instead of making them miss."
This kid literally never leaves the field.
"It's taxing, but I'm going to do what I need to for the team," he said. "It's hard in the moment but I wouldn't want it any other way."
When not playing football, Monsivaiz is the president of TWCA's Interact Club and runs a small chapel group for the freshmen and sophomores. He also throws the shot for the track team.
"I love going to a smaller school," he said. "You really get to know everyone and that extra bond with football has really shaped who I am as a high school student. It's a real brotherhood. Having the opportunity to represent the school on and off the field is also really cool. You are a role model to the younger kids and set the example."
As his prep career begins to melt away, Monsivaiz is looking for his next venture – college.
"I'd love to play in college – wherever the best fit is and where I can make the biggest impact," he said. "I'm looking for a great education to set me up for life after football as well."
Not sure he will be a three-way player at the next level, but right now his versatility on and off the field makes him a can't-miss kid.
