The Owl

Calvin Boykoff

Calvin Boykoff, Sports Editor

Calvin Boykoff is a senior at Boulder High, entering his third year as a member of The Owl. This year, however, Calvin is entering into a leadership position and has taken upthe role of sports editor. Aside from writing and editing The Owl, Calvin enjoys video production and editing, which he sees as a career path he would like to pursue. He sees his future outside of the United States and is looking toward university in the United Kingdom or the Netherlands. In addition to his interest in media and video work, Calvin is a diehard soccer fan, playing for the varsity team this fall and supporting Chelsea Football Club. After every game or practice, Calvin loves to chow down on just about any food in sight. His favorite? Green grapes, as he goes through about a bag every 4 days. Calvin is excited about how the newspaper will turn out this year and hopes to make a positive impact throughout the year.
