HOPPER

At age 16, she benches 120 pounds. Squats 200. Cleans 135. Covers 40 yards in 5.21 seconds. She's a fearsome defender on the high school varsity soccer team and was a state finalist in the 4 x 800 relay as a freshman. She's also a musician. A member of her school's top show choir, she recently garnered a leading role in the drama department's upcoming presentation of "High School Musical." She's a top academic achiever in her class. And she's my daughter. I nicknamed her "Hopper" when she was a toddler because she seemed hop or half-run instead of walk. Oh, did I mention she's a cancer survivor?
