Soon-to-be LHS graduate Christian Long answers some questions about himself as he takes a seat in the the Hot Seat!

What is something no one knows about you?

“Well, let’s see. In second grade I broke both of my wrists at the same time. I was playing a game called “embarrassing accident,” and I jumped from the playground to the monkey bars. I swung off and broke both of my wrists.  It was actually really sad and it hurt.”


What are your plans for next year?

“Goin’ to Ole Miss, studying…what am I studying?…management and political science. I am very excited.”


What is your favorite thing to do outside of school?

“Play soccer. It is fun and I like it. It gets my mind off things.”


What was one of your favorite high school moments?

“Winning state for soccer [earlier this year], for sure.”


What were the thoughts running through your head when you won?

I really couldn’t believe we did that just because I didn’t think we could do it and as it got closer, it was kinda surreal.”


What will you miss most about LHS?

“My friends and all the people here…most of the people are nice.”


If you could be in one Netflix show, what show would you be in and why?

“‘House of Cards’ because, I don’t know, it would be fun to work in the White House and stuff.”


What character would you be?

“Frank Underwood of course, president of the United States.”


What is one of your biggest fears?

“My biggest fear…getting attacked by a bear in the woods…by myself.”


If you could travel to any place in the world where would it be?

“Switzerland because I’ve never been there and [I’ve] always wanted to go.”


If you could be someone else in your grade for a day, who would you be and why?

“That’s a tough one. Umm, I would be Ben Kimpler because he’s awesome and he’s really good at sports. He’s nice and everyone likes him. Shoutout to Ben Kimpler. Oh, and I wanna be taller.”
