The Roar

Matthew Grissom
Guess who’s back more ready then ever? Matthew Grissom returns to the Leander High Newspaper staff and plans to publish twice as many stories as last year. I like playing, watching, and discussing baseball with my dad and my twin brother, Mark.

I’m a huge movie buff and will pretty much watch anything like action, drama, horror, or even animated. My favorite movies are Empire Strikes Back, Predator, Lonesome Dove (it counts!), Guardians of the Galaxy, The Dark Knight and all of the Toy Story movies.

My favorite sport is baseball and my favorite teams are the Chicago Cubs and the Texas Rangers. I am in the Leander Rotary Club and I help with the football field whenever I can. I can’t wait to try new things this year and you can expect more movie reviews out of me like Army of Darkness, Ant-Man, Batman V Superman, suicide squad, and Arkham Knight.

Go Lions Baseball and Football!!!
