Week 5: Aiden Seider (Eisenhower football)
Aiden Seider isn't just an AP-level student at Eisenhower High School, he's also senior class president.
Seider's "superpowers" include perseverance (playing with a club to protect an injured arm) and supreme focus on his goals. During a trying couple of years for the Eisenhower football program he has maintained a positive attitude and has been a steadying force amidst the changes.
In this WAND Sports interview Aiden shares his (very specific) plans to become a corporate contract negotiator. We also hear from Aiden's father Tim Seider about what makes him proud.
