My favorite restaurant is Cattlemens in Fort Worth. When I get out of high school, I am going to go to plumbing school and get my master plumber’s license. My favorite song is “The Stroke” by Billy Squire. My favorite game to play is pool. I’m part of the Westside FFA, and I’m on the horse judging team. My favorite movie is Walk the Line or Tombstone. My favorite quote is,  “I’m not here to follow your footsteps. I’m here to make my own,” and “If you’re gonna be a bear, you might as well be a grizzly.”  Stay thirsty, my friends!

My name is Tyke Taylor. I play football and will also be playing baseball this year. I’ve been at Westside since I was in the third grade. I love doing anything that involves exercise and being competitive. I also like to hang out with friends and pick on smaller people than I. Haha. #ToolForLife ;)

I’m Zach Dawson, and I am a sophomore here at Westside High. I enjoy playing with my little brother. I love playing pool, and I also play on the soccer team. And I’m always sleeping.


Zach Norwood

I was born and raised in Jonesboro, Arkansas and there's nowhere I'd rather be. I enjoy long walks on the beach at sunset, smooth jazz, and softly playing piano in the moonlight.
