Participate in The Longevity Project

The Longevity Project is an annual campaign to help educate readers about what it takes to live a long, fulfilling life in our valley. This year Kevin shares his story of hope and celebration of life with his presentation Cracked, Not Broken as we explore the critical and relevant topic of mental health.

“Probably after my first ever triple jump. It was my first meet, and it was cool after it was over.”

What is your dream moment in athletics:

“I’m hoping to get better in basketball, so I can play in college. In track, I want to get better for next year, so I can hopefully make it to state.”

What is the hardest part of the sport you play:

“Probably the weather, and how hard the work is. But, I feel like that hard work will pay off.”

How would you describe your strengths and weaknesses:

“My weakness is in the phases. My strength is probably my form.”

Who is your hero and why:

“Carmelo Anthony is probably my hero. Just the way he plays basketball and how he gives back with NBA Cares.”

Do you have to give anything up to play your sport?

“Yeah, you do give something up. But, it’s all about commitment.”

If you had one super power, what would it be and why:

“Strength. You could lift up buildings.”


Food: Sirloin steak

Music: Pretty much anything. It’s all good.

Player/team: Carmelo Anthony, Denver Nuggets

Thing about your team: “I like that we’re all competitive.”

Favorite pump-up song: “Enter Sandman” by Metallica.


Browning and the Moffat County High School track and field team will be in Rifle today, and will have their first home meet Friday.
