Inola’s Ethan Trosky – Northeast Tech Athlete of the Month

Inola’s Ethan Trosky has been in track and played football since his middle school years. He has enjoyed getting to represent his high school in athletics over the years.

“I like getting to play for my school in front of friends and family and I like getting recognized by the community,” he said.

One thing Trosky has learned in his time as an Inola athlete is that teammates make all the difference in sports. He has formed close bonds with his fellow Longhorns on the field.

“In football it takes a team to play and each player relies on the other to get the job done,” he said. “I see all my teammates as family and I rely on them to help me.”

Another lesson Trosky has picked up through sports and through the support of those around him is to learn from mistakes.

“My friends, family and my coaches motivate me to always get better and learn from my mistakes,” he said.

Outside of Inola High School, Trosky attends Northeast Tech in the Pre-Engineering program. There are many things he enjoys about it, especially the fact that he gets to learn about one of his interests that will carry on later in his life.

“I’m in the Pre-Engineering program at Northeast Tech and always thought it would be cool to design and build new things,” he said. “I have always wanted to be an engineer so when I heard they had the engineering class at Northeast Tech I immediately wanted in. I enjoy getting to meet new people and getting to go to another school to learn about the things I want to do in life. The classes are teaching me all the basics that I need to know about engineering so I will be prepared for college.”

After high school Trosky plans to attend college and work towards a degree in mechanical engineering.
