Do You Know Jason O'Neil? (Profile of a Peer)

     Jason O'Neil is a Norton High School student that many people know. However, not many people really know Jason. After sitting down with him, there are new things to know about him that other people might not know.
     
     Jason was born on May 13, 1997. He is the youngest of three children, with his older sister, Colleen, being twenty-two years old and his older brother, Tyler, being twenty years old. Jason feels as if the three of them have a "pretty good" relationship. This is apparent by the way he feels that he is most similar to his brother. Mr. O'Neil does not currently have any pets, but he "had a fish" at an early age: his name was "Squirt" but it passed away ofter a short while.

      Jason O'Neil has done a few things in his short life. He has traveled to amazing places: he "went to...Universal Studios" in Florida where he loved to ride "the Hulk." He has also gone to school for a long time. Now a senior at Norton High School, he has gone to school for over ten years. This is such a long time that he does not know what his favorite read is. "I don't know," Jason pronounced, "I've read a lot of books in school." This time has not bored him, since he enjoys coming to school as a senior. Jason likes school the most because he believes it is "not that hard," and he gets to play his favorite sport: basketball.

     One of Jason's favorite hobbies is basketball. Jason has always been a fan of basketball , and he has played for as long he can remember. He plays ther game pretty well, too, playing for the high school varsity team. His friends believe he is a "tall and athletic" person, so this gives him an advantage whenever he plays the sport he loves. He has done so well at the sport that he ha won a "New England free throw competition." When he was twelve, Jason was able to compete in Connecticut against many different basketball players from around the region, and he won the entire contest.

      After talking with Jason, it seems like he is very happy with how his life is: he can even say that he is "pretty satisfied" with how he has lived his life so far. Jason looks like he is ready for anything life has to throw at him, and he seems up for the next challenge that comes his way. Many believe his past experiences on the court, in the classroom, and at home will help him with the new experinces he will create in the years ahead.
