Cavaliers News · Senior Spotlight: Keahi Zussman


With the spring sports being cancelled, we would like to thank our spring senior athletes for all of their hard work and leadership during their four years of participating in Tri-County Athletics.   You have definitely left your mark on your respective sports.  We would also like for the Cavalier fans to get to know you a little better before you graduate.  So, we thought we would have you fill out a short questionnaire about some of your memories of being a Cavalier.

 

Today’s senior spotlight is Keahi Zussman.

 

  • What sports did you participate in while at Tri-County?

 

                Football and Track & Field

 

  • What are your plans for next year?

 

                I plan to attend Indiana University to Study Law and Public Policy

 

  • What was your most memorable athletic moment while participating for TC? 

 

               My most memorable moment has to be going on an 8-game win streak that led to us winning the conference in football for the first time in 40 years.

 

  • What will you miss most about being a part of Tri-County athletics?

 

                 The thing that will miss most about being a part of Tri-County athletics is the grind that happens during the off-season. The planning and training that my coaches and I put into the offseason so that we can better ourselves is something that I have never before seen until the past couple of years. It’s something that I may never be able to get back, and I am going to miss it immensely.

          

 

  • What advice would you give to your teammates? 

 

                   If you want to be great, don’t assume that it’s going to come naturally. You have to put in the work in order to get better and the sooner you start, the better off you’ll be. One of my biggest regrets is that I didn’t start putting in any real planning or training during the off-season until my junior year. I still went to practices and workouts before then and yes, the year and a half of legitimate training that I did do make me a significantly better athlete, but I will always know in the back of my mind that I could have been so much better had I started putting in more effort in the earlier years of my career. Don’t leave yourself with that regret. The end will come sooner than you believe!
