Vigil is an avid football player. During the summer, he helps his coach run a small youth kids football camp. He is also ran track and was on the wrestling team. He will play football at Colorado Mesa University on a football scholarship and pursue a medical degree.

What profession or career do you want to pursue? Why?

I want to become a physician's assistant because I'm trying to follow in the footsteps of a lot of my family members who are in the medical field. I also love helping out people.

What do you hope to accomplish in life?

I hope to come out of college with a good opportunity to start a career that makes good money to be able to support myself. And, hopefully, have an opportunity to have a variety of options open to me.

If I could do anything, it would
be to ...

Have a shot to go to combine for the NFL and just experience that. Watching that on TV is one of my biggest motivations to have the burning passion I do for football. It's just so awesome to see everybody start from high school, college and then end up there.
