“I really like it,” he said.

The recent graduate of Northshore High School in Houston plans on staying busy in the fall at UHV by working toward his goal of eventually becoming a mechanical engineer.

“I am looking forward to seeing how it is at college,” he said. “I’ll be focusing on being successful.”

Clayton was involved with both basketball and track at Northshore.
