Selo contributed to Leesville High School on the field, the court, in the classrooms and on the stage. Selo started playing football in 7th grade, and excelled in offense, defense and special teams. He was named one of twelve players statewide to be on the NC All-Metro team.
As a captain, he was a key leader, motivator and even the “front man” at the fall pep rally, where he whipped the crowd into a spirited frenzy. Selo also ran track, excelling at the grueling 300m hurdles event. On the basketball court, he was a power forward, and was recognized with the “Heart and Hustle Award”.
Selo performed as an emcee at the Winterfest Assembly during his senior year, again lending his talents to help entertain the student body. While working at Wendy’s and being a very active member of his church, Selo maintained a 3.1 GPA.
Faculty member, Heather Dinkenor, remembers Selo fondly. When asked how her class won the food drive during Selo’s senior year, she credited Selo. “He went from house to house over Thanksgiving break and just filled his whole trunk up with as much food as it could hold. He helped put us over the top. He was a key leader in that very special class.”
