TJ Wall, sports editor

TJ Wall, also known as “Wheelz,” is a second-year editor of the sports section and is a fun-loving, witty guy that loves sports, music and keeping up with the latest news. He is a senior who makes good grades and aspires to attend Baylor University and eventually become a lawyer. He is an active member of Trinity Baptist Church and loves attending his youth group. TJ may seem a little quiet at first, but you will realize that he’s almost never serious. He’s always cracking a joke about his “handicappedness” every chance he gets. People aren’t sure if they should laugh when he makes fun of himself, but rest assured — it won’t hurt his feelings. He is about three and a half feet tall, has six wheels, and shows his school spirit by rocking orange on his chair. He is usually trying to escape the crazy chaos when the school bell rings by frantically flying down the halls at approximately 6.1 miles per hour. TJ may seem a little weird or crazy, but once you introduce yourself to him, you will become friends right off the bat.
