Shane Gines, Reporter

Shane Gines was born in Seattle, Washington, but moved to Tracy, California at a young age. He enjoys living in Tracy, but wants to move as soon as he could. He currently attends Tracy high and plans to graduate from there. When he was younger, he always had a picture of what he wanted to be and have for a career. He wanted to be a therapist or a pilot. His passions always came from various sports, which is why it was surprising when being a pilot or a therapist were his main career paths. He's played basketball and football, and holds a special passion for boxing. His favorite boxers being, George Foreman, Roberto Duran, Sugar Ray Leonard, and the list goes on.  They always inspired him to be the best at his craft and never give up. Watching boxing has showed Shane what it means to have heart and persevere through hardships. Having a big impact on everything in Shane’s life, from school, to sports, to anything in life, it was most definitely the greatest basketball player of all time, Michael Jordan who inspired him the most. Michael Jordan was another inspiration that taught him to keep your head up at your worst moments, and to never quit. All these life lessons he’s learned from his idols, made his life much easier and more fun as well. Helping him succeed in school and push towards his life goals he set in place.
