My name is Zoey Taylor, I am 17 years-old. I am a Senior at Ridge point High School. In my spare time, I like to cook, help my mom around the house, chill with my little brother, and watch sports. When I grow up, I want to be a Sports Agent. I am looking forward to covering the sports at Ridge Point to shine a light on our amazing programs. When it comes to being a VypeU Ambassador, I am most excited to learn and understand all that goes on behind the scenes of sports, learning how articles can help players and key attributes in producing my best body of work. With this experience I'm hoping to learn how to be more confident when doing in-person interviews, how to utilize the skills I have learned about writing, understanding how media could help and harm players in the sporting industry and I also want to be able to improve my skill set when it comes to writing to better articulate what I'm seeing as a media source for the masses.
The Ridge Point Panthers have had a rough few years when it came to deep playoff runs. Last year they were knocked out in the first round after a tough loss to the Katy Tigers 35-28. Though this year has been such an up and down year the Panthers have managed to earn a district championship title and make it to the third round with the plan to continue past it.
The Panthers are currently 7-2 going into this weekend game against the also 7-2 Atascocita Eagles.
