Be a Buddy: Meet Mark

Midland, Tx. (KOSA) – Numbers come easy for Mark.

He can easily answer that 15 times 13 equals 195.

So as you can probably guess, math is the 10-year-old’s favorite subject.

When it comes to sports, Mark has his top two.

“Basketball has always been my favorite sport and then second behind it is football," Mark said. "Because that’s the only two things I know I’m good at.”

But don’t let the young man fool you, his talents stretch far beyond the court or the field.

Mark has a creative side. He likes reading and often aces his 5th grade spelling tests.

"When I get the paper it shows 100 and I just get excited," Mark explained.

An intelligent and outgoing big brother would make a perfect fit. Mark just asks that his future big brother like playing ball too.

“I hope he's good at basketball or football so we could, when they come get me, we could end up going somewhere to park or something and practice.”
