MINDEN, La - Patrick Heard can be found hitting the grid iron on Friday nights, but he always finds time to hit the books.
The All District football player maintains a 4.0 GPA.
"Grades are priority. You just have to be responsible that's the main thing."
The senior leads Minden High's varsity football team.
"I'm not the loudest player, but I try to lead by example."
That's what he tries to do every time he gets on the field.
"Just go 100 percent. Every play. Every day."
Patrick is also a track star and outside of sports he's active in the community through National Honor Society and Student Council.
"It's a good experience for anyone because the community is what supports the team."
