This week we Take Five with Kevin Kane, a sophomore at the high school who loves track and field and Ferris Bueller. Be sure you go to our Web site, westmilfordmessenger.com to read our bonus five with Kevin.

1) Who is your biggest inspiration?

My biggest inspiration is my older brother Chris, he's always pushing me to challenge myself in everything I do.

2) What would most people be surprised to know about track and field?

When people think of track, they really only think of running both long and short distances, when that only takes up about half of the sport itself. Personally I think out of all the field events, pole vaulting is the most interesting and the most fun. I started vaulting the first few weeks of track and I've loved it ever since.

3) Who is your favorite teacher of all time and why?

My favorite teacher of all time would have to be Ms. Lugerner, my 7th grade science teacher in Macopin. She taught me a lot of things I didn't know, but most importantly taught me life lessons I will hold on to for the rest if my life.

4) What is your favorite movie, book or character and why?

My favorite movie of all time would have to be Ferris Bueller's Day Off.

5) Share something no one knows about you.

Something not many people know about me is that I am a Boy Scout currently planning my Eagle project. I'm very close to be being finished with scouts and I am excited to have it all behind me.

Good luck with that Eagle scout project! Your community is proud of you and looks forward to helping you with that.

Bonus five

6) How did you get involved with track and field?

I started last year as a freshmen because I was looking for a sport to get into during the spring, and track seemed like something I'd enjoy doing.

7) Name three things you would bring with you if you were on a deserted island.

If I was stranded on a deserted island, I would bring matches, a knife, and Darren VanDunk cause that kid makes me laugh harder than anyone else I know.

8) Share a favorite moment with your team.

One of my favorite moments with my team was being able to watch the famous Mark VanTynes, who was an amazing athlete for our track team last year, run for his college team at the Penn Relays.

9) What does being a Highlander mean to you?

Being a highlander means taking pride in where you live and go to school.

10) What do you do with your time when you are not doing track?

When I'm not with the track team, I usually like to spend my time relaxing, studying, or playing soccer with my club team in town.
