East Los Angeles Renaissance Academy

An East L.A. football player with dreams within the medical field

Jacob Munoz is currently a senior attending East Los Angeles Renaissance Academy on the Torres High School campus. Ever since he was a 5-year-old child, he enjoyed playing sports such as football, baseball, and basketball.  Out of the three, football is his favorite.

He currently plays for Torres High School and is in his last season of high school football. He was also going to play baseball but after being moved up to varsity football his freshman year, he decided to quit other sports and focus on football.

In his free time off practices, he enjoys going out with friends and spending time with his family.

Other things Munoz enjoys to do is bike and exercising. He got into biking when he moved in with his stepfather because the new friends he made on that block got him into the lifestyle. It allows them to ride to skate parks everywhere, and ride the streets of L.A. to explore.

For exercise, when he is not in football season, he runs the cemetery by his house with friends at night or first thing in the morning.

For his future plans, he first wants to graduate high school.  After that his plan is to go to a community college to complete his general education classes and then transfer to a four-year college to possibly study Radiology, where he gained interest from his stepfather who is an X-ray technician and surgeon at the East Los Angeles Doctors Hospital.  He is aware that the job may come with many hours, but he likes with what he has seen in his stepfather in that their pay is pretty well.
