Hart High School valedictorian, Brian Pantoja, is the son of Miguel & Sylvia Pantoja. He will be attending West Texas A&M University in Canyon, Texas to enter the Pre-Medicine program. Once all recommendations are met, he will attend the Baylor School of Medicine to pursue a career in Sports Medicine Science and Orthopedics. Because of a football injury suffered in high school, Pantoja was inspired and is dedicated to hold once-a-week free clinics for unfortunate and underprivileged student athletes. He intends to research injury prevention techniques, produce faster and simpler ways of surgery and rehabilitation, and introduce a new generation of braces.
