Owen Eaton, 11, a fifth grader at St. Francis Catholic School, is the type of student that teachers enjoy having in the classroom.

“He is a strong student,” said teacher Peg Davis. “He is always on task, and is caring, helpful, kind-hearted, and has impeccable manners.”

Owen’s favorite class is math where he completes advanced coursework. He most enjoys this subject “because it is easy for me to do.”

Despite his academic achievements, he pushes himself to do better.

“My goal is to get better at seventh and eighth grade math,” the pupil said.

In his spare time, Owen hangs out with his siblings Alivia and Alex, his dog Bella, who is a German shorthaired pointer, and plays games.

“I also like to ride around in my golf cart,” he said. “I do a weight lifting program at the Y, and I like to play football.”

One proud achievement of his is when he won his school’s fire safety art award in third grade.

“I made a statue of a burning building and somebody running out of it and going to a neighbor’s house,” he explained.

Owen sees a future in professional football.

“I want to be a long snapper for the Denver Broncos,” he said. “[That position] means they have a longer way to kick the ball.”
