Name: Arturo Nunez

Grade: Senior

Jersey Number: 68

Position: Right guard and defensive tackle

Football history: I have been playing football for 4years
What are you known for?: I am known for being the main offensive lineman and being a super cool person and friend.

What motivates you?: My grandfather. Athletics runs in our family; my grandfather almost made it to a professional baseball league in Mexico. I started playing football my freshman year and my grandfather is my inspiration due to the fact that he was in a wheelchair yet that never held him back. He was my best friend we did everything together. He passed away the summer before I started high school at RHS.

Who is the team to beat?: I would love to beat Garfield because my freshman year as a JV player was the last time Roosevelt beat Garfield in any football game.

NEXT GAME: The Roosevelt Rough Riders football team has an away conference game at Venice High School on Friday, Oct. 3.
