The Owl

Elijah Boykoff, Sports Editor

Elijah Boykoff is a senior at Boulder High School. He is an avid soccer player and has been a part of the BHS soccer program for all four years that he has attended Boulder High. Elijah likes to relieve some of the stress of his life as a high school student by walking his Goldendoodle around town and watching soccer games with his Dad. If Elijah is ever able to find free time within his jam-packed schedule, he sits down and immerses himself in some of his favorite Quentin Tarantino films. Elijah has both a passion for writing and a desire to learn more about the world, making The Owl the perfect place for him to satisfy his interests. As a member of The Owl staff when it was an after-school club last year, Elijah hopes to continue the fun that he had while writing articles in the new newspaper class. While on The Owl team for 2019-20, Elijah hopes to serve his community with relevant and interesting information as well as captivating stories. Elijah prefers purple grapes.
