Aaron is currently a senior and the Editor-in-Chief of The Roundup. After playing football for multiple years, Aaron suffered a major back injury at the end of his sophomore season. Just weeks later, he began searching for new clubs and things to try at Jesuit, thus leading him to The Roundup. After writing just one simple article, he found he immensely enjoyed writing. After covering just two more articles that spring, Aaron became a Junior Associate Editor. During his junior year, Aaron was awarded “Best Article of the Month” in December 2012 and “Editor of the Month” in November 2012. Aaron will be attending Saint Louis University next year and will major in Health Management (Pre-Med).

Some people may think their blood donation has a small effect in...
If you happened to walk by the Lecture Hall last Wednesday, January 16, 2013, you might’ve seen many students nervously pacing with scripts in their hands reciting lines. You might’ve even heard some students singing together, trying to warm up their voices. What’s going on, you ask? It’s that time of year again. Last week, Jesuit Theater held their...
If you’ve ever scrolled through your TV guide on Monday, Wednesday, or Friday nights, you might’ve seen a show called “Duck Dynasty” on A&E. One may assume it’s a hunting show, but would be completely wrong. The creators of “Duck Dynasty” managed not only to form a great reality show, but also a comedic view of the Robertson family...
If you’ve ever attended a Jesuit Ranger Varsity basketball game, you’ve seen a man, standing 6’6”, pacing along the side of the court, shouting plays to the team as he encourages them to play their best. Always well dressed in a suit and tie at the game’s start, but acclimated during play to the stuffy Jesuit gym with sleeves...
Some high school coaches can say they were “big shots” in their high school days;  others may say they’ve played in college or the NFL for that matter.
