Jack Egizi hopes his legacy at Marian is defined by his hardworking attitude, allowing him to “always do [his] very best”. This trait has been recognized on numerous occasions by his favorite teacher, Mr. Conaty, as well as his soccer coach. As the sole captain of the Marian Varsity Soccer Team, Jack has embodied leadership and commitment, leading to his nomination as October’s Athlete of the Month.
Though a football player his freshman year, Jack found his niche on the soccer field during his tenth grade Fall at Marian. He finds his role as the team’s lone captain “a really cool thing” and a source of pride following a Winter dedicated to improving his soccer skills. Jack and his teammates have recently qualified for the state tournament with an impressive 8-5-3 record. Jack also runs both Winter and Spring track, excelling in both arenas. During his junior season, his trademark hard work paid off: he represented Marian at the state meet in the 600m. In addition, he runs the 400m in the springtime, occasionally participating in the 800m and 4x400m relay. His involvement in Marian athletics made him a natural choice for this year’s Homecoming King, which he described simultaneously “really unexpected” and “kind of exciting”.
Frequent visits to his aunt’s Connecticut home spurred Jack’s love of New York City, where he hopes to attend college next year. He has visited the Big Apple a variety of times in the past year, both to look at schools and participate in a Key Club community service project. Although he intends to leave, Jack does love the Boston area, especially during a lobster meal or family clambake at his beach home in Marshfield.
While excited about his next steps, Jack will miss the Marian community, especially the supportive atmosphere he so frequently contributes to. As vice president of the senior class, he has made phenomenal use of his four years as a Mustang, and will surely excel during his time in college.
