Duncan Ordenana
  Duncan Ordenana, 17 and has been living in Tracy all of his life. Ordenana started school at Art Frieler Elementary, but after the first grade moved and attended Tom Hawkins Elementary until high school. His first sport was baseball, which he played for eight years and also tried soccer for one year. At Hawkins, Ordenana was on the honor roll and won awards for citizenship and was named the hall of fame award for citizenship. Entering high school, he stopped playing baseball and try out football. Ordenana made the team, but did not start. Entering his sophomore season he switched positions from running back to offensive linemen and became a starter. He has been ever since. During his junior year, the team made it to section championship for the first time since 1987, and he won the award for the most improved player on varsity. Other hobbies of his are watching sports and hanging out with friends. Ordenana hopes to attend a four-year college and get his bachelor’s degree in architecture. After college, he hopes to start a family and move to southern California or out of state.
