John McConkey
John McConkey is an AHS senior and is an editor for broadcasting in journalism this year. McConkey said, “I basically make cool videos with Chase.” His favorite project he has made in journalism was “The game show video” with 3 contestants giving them hints on a person in the high school and see if they know who they were. McConkey enjoys the most about journalism is using his ideas to make something everyone sees and enjoys.

Besides journalism, McConkey participates in football, wrestling and National Honors Society. McConkey also enjoys making people laugh, as he said he’s “Good for yuks.” Something he would never change about himself is his ability to make people laugh, and he also describes himself as determined and funny.

One thing I would never give away is “My Trojan Pride” said McConkey. McConkey looks up to Coach Duff and Coach Mcdermott, and said they are both “outstanding” individuals. “It’s a picture of me wrestling,” said McConkey about his lock screen on his phone. McConkey says his mom knows him best. He also said that his basement is a calm place he likes to go to. “Chillin with the boys and playing madden or 2k,” would be McConkey’s ideal relaxing afternoon. McConkey says one talent he would like to gain without effort would be to play a guitar “It would be a cool talent to have.”
