As our Seniors celebrate their last year in high school, they prepare for the next chapter in their lives. I asked our Homecoming King, Devonte Hill, some questions about his experiences in high school as well as his plans for the future.
In your opinion what has been your greatest accomplishment in high school?
“Honestly, my greatest accomplishment has been to help my football team. Football has always been my dream. To be seen as a playmaker in all these games and helping my team win is really all I’ve wanted from the start. In my eyes that is a great accomplishment.”
What is one lesson you’ve learned here in your time at Cape Fear that you will carry with you into the next chapter of your life?
“To always push through adversity. Times will get hard and you gotta keep your head up. Revert back to all the things you’ve learned in life and don’t get down on yourself. Remember to work hard and good things will come.”
What is your best memory of high school over the past 4 years?
“My best memory was definitely when our 4x200m relay team had won the state championship. The entire day was amazing from the bus rides to getting close with the teammates. The relationships we built were just a different type of feeling that I’ll never forget.”
What are your plans for after high school?
“After high school I plan to go to a 4 year college and major in Chemistry. I’m not sure which college yet, but I do want to pursue a football career.”#1 Signing off….
Hill has been very involved in his time here at Cape Fear. Here’s his advice for all of the underclassmen.
“Start off right. I didn’t start off the way I wanted to freshman year, thankfully I was able to get it together sophomore through senior year. Don’t take the first 3 years for granted, start off right and it makes things much easier.”
