Be a Buddy: Meet Lee'ontae

Midland, Tx. (KOSA) -- Lee’ontae is a high-energy first grader. He loves to play and his favorite things include multiple sports, like “football, basketball, and soccer."

The school subjects Lee’ontae excels in are the ones he also enjoys the most.

“I like science and math," Lee'ontae said.

Inside the Centennial Library in Midland, Lee'ontae easily points out books about the geological landforms and weather patterns he’s learning in elementary school.

At seven years old he can also already do mental math.

“What is two plus two," Shelby asked. Lee'ontae easily answered "four.”

An energetic man with a passion for sports would be a great fit. And Lee'ontae already has one simple message for his future big brother: “I love you!”
