“It goes through my mind sometimes, especially when I’m playing and getting beat by someone I’m more athletic than,” he said. “But it makes it more special to be able to go out and compete with kids who are playing just one sport. There’s definitely some pride in that.”

As one would expect, Larson’s schedule is exceptionally busy. Keeping up his level of play, whether as a tennis player, a soccer defender or a basketball forward — not to mention two years as a kicker for the football team — is a time-eater. Which explains the messy room.

“I usually run home between practice, change clothes and I leave them on the floor,” he admitted. “But they’re usually cleaned up by the time I get home.”

Well, nobody’s perfect.
