Francisco Negron III
Francisco Negron III, son of Kelley Negron and Francisco Negron, is this week’s Jet’s Pizza male Athlete of the Week.
He is a sophomore at Centennial High School and a member of the bowling team. He has a high score of 639 and a high game of 244.
Negron said he started bowling as a hobby with a few friends when he was little and ended up deciding to stick with it.
When asked what inspires him to train and compete he said, “My mom because she always wants me to do my best and never give up.”
Coach Clevenger said of him, “Frankie bowls with intensity and compassion. He is willing to help his teammates better their game by giving separate supportive advice.”
His biggest role model is Jason Belmonte, the number one bowler in the U.S. Negron said he looks up to him because he never seems down on himself.
Outside of bowling, he enjoys playing video games.
After graduating from CHS, Negron plans to go to college and would like to pursue a professional bowling career.
