Jacob Hagewood is a junior at the Athens Bible School. He likes playing music for his own enjoyment, but he lends his talents to weddings and other special events throughout the area.
"I started when I was in 2nd grade, about 8-years-old. This is my 10th year. It's something that I can enjoy, just to let go I guess," said Hagewood.
Hagewood an "A" student, and his favorite subject is trigonometry.
Pam Chandler, his math teacher said he enjoys competition and he works hard to be at the top.
Hagewood works hard to be at the top of two other things- cross country running and baseball.
"It's been my favorite my whole life. I started playing when I was 5, and I've been playing all through high school now," said Hagewood.
Hagewood has broken a few records throughout the state, so it is no surprise that he wants to be a professional baseball player in the future. However, that certainly won't stop him from getting his degree in electrical engineering in the future.
"I am an Alabama fan, but I'm kind of leaning towards maybe getting my degree at Auburn, but I don't think that's going to change my view on football though," said Hagewood.
For hitting home runs on the baseball field, on the piano, as well as in the classroom, Jacob Hagewood is a WAFF 48 Star Student.
