The time you have in high school is short-lived. It’s a four-year journey, but the time goes by in a blink of an eye. One second you’re playing multiple sports and are carefree. Another second you’re in college or wherever else, preparing for your career. Getting to know Cashin a little better, the ambition to chase success is crystal clear. Here’s a little bit more about the Pacelli multi-sport athlete.
Most teenagers find themselves with nicknames as they glide through their schooling careers. Whether it be from family or friends, the name sticks with you for a long time. Cashin explained that he has two nicknames, one from a family member and one from his friends.
“When I was younger, my grandpa would always call me bud or buddy, so that has definitely stuck within my family,” he said. “Otherwise, my friends call me Cash because of my last name.”
Growing up means being a part of as many experiences as we can possibly imagine. For most kids, that is playing a type of sport. For Cashin, playing baseball meant creating memories with some important people.
“I think the thing that got me into baseball the most was just being around my friends,” he stated. “Being at the Woyak complex were some of the best memories I had as a kid.”
Free time is a big thing for high school athletes needing a break from their sport or just school. What someone does in their free time gives them a sense of calmness and relaxation.
“Being on the water fishing or with family/friends is my favorite thing to do in my free time,” Cashin explains. “It’s nice being out there and not having to worry about anything else going on.”
Another big hit for high school-aged students is technology. Playing video games is another thing people do to kill time. Cashin was asked to pick between Playstion and XBOX; he chose Playstation.
“All my close friends have always had Playstations, so it’s easier for us to play together online.”
We have all thought about something in the world that we would change if we had the power to do so. If that dream became a reality, what would you change? Cashin states that he would change something with a current event.
“If I could change one thing for a day, I would make gas free for everyone,” he said.
Everyone has different foods they enjoy. Comfort food sits higher on many people’s lists because of how easy it is to make or because of how good it tastes. Cashin explains the food he chose is one that he could eat every day.
“My favorite comfort food is definitely tacos,” he said. “My mom makes them the best, and I could probably eat them everyday.”
Lastly, Cashin got asked about his future. A lot of people make plans for themselves in advance that include goals that they want to accomplish. For the Pacelli graduate, he wants to graduate from college and live close to home.
“In five years, I expect to be graduated from college and hopefully start my life in the real world with a good job,” he explained. “I’d like to live close to family and possibly start my own fishing guide service.”
