Athlete • Murtaugh High School • Juan Mata

Juan Mata, a senior at Murtaugh High School, played football for the first time in his life this year and turned out to be one of the best kickers in Murtaugh for several years. He is also having a fantastic track season and is looking to be a state contender.

Juan works very hard, and is one of the nicest, most coachable and humble athletes. This fall, Juan plans to attend the College of Southern Idaho, where he hopes to be a part of the auto body technician program.
