Senior Yell Candidates
Kenny Cantrell
Agribusiness junior
Why do you want to be a yell leader?
I want to be a leader because I feel like I can give back to the student body, which has given so much to me. A lot of mentors have really poured into me and my time at A&M and making sure I understand what the Aggie Spirit is, and I want to pass it on to the next generation of Aggies.

Favorite Yell?
“Spirit of Aggieland”
Favorite Aggie tradition?
The 12th Man
Favorite thing to do in Aggieland?
Fish Camp
If you could eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Chicken. You can eat it in so many different ways.


Hugo Casillas
Chemistry junior

Why do you want to be a yell leader?
You know how as Aggies we have a saying to “pass it back,” but I also want to go another step and pay it forward – help unify our campus as regs and non-regs. We can just to do amazing things.

Favorite Yell?
“Locomotive”
Favorite Aggie tradition?
The 12th Man
Favorite thing to do in Aggieland?
Going to Layne’s
If you could eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
It would have to be my mom’s pasta.


Karsten Lowe
Industrial distribution junior

Why do you want to be a yell leader?
I think the biggest reason I want to be a senior yell leader is to have the ability to impact others and to share the love of the Aggie family. This last year, being a junior yell leader, I was blessed with the opportunity and just being able to have that impact on people and just be the face of Texas A&M, because it doesn’t matter who Karsten Lowe is, but any interaction I have, I am representing Texas A&M.
Favorite yell?
“Fifteen for Team, Farmer’s Fight, Call it a Night”
Favorite Aggie tradition?
Silver Taps
Favorite thing to do in Aggieland?
Go to the Chicken
If you could eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
If it was one restaurant, I’d pick Whataburger because of the diversity of the menu. If we are going by sole food, the Chick-fil-A chicken sandwich.


Gilberto Rebolloso
Agricultural leadership and development junior

Why do you want to be a yell leader?
The main reason why I’m running for senior yell is actually to promote diversity within the university. These are individuals who aren’t only representatives of the university but ambassadors that go out on behalf of the university all over the United States. I feel that since A&M is becoming a Hispanic-serving institution – which means that the percentage of Hispanics is now 22 percent and soon to grow – I feel like the individuals who represent A&M should reflect what the university is becoming and what it promotes.
Favorite Yell?
“Locomotive”
Favorite Aggie tradition?
Silver Taps
Favorite thing to do in Aggieland?
Eat delicious Layne’s
If you could eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Sopapaillas


Reid Williams

Business marketing junior
Why do you want to be a yell leader?

It is a position where you get to be a shining light and show love toward people and carry out the traditions – not something that we started, but a legacy that has been left over the past years. I think that makes it so special that yell leader is like a living legacy that has been around since 1907.

Favorite yell?
“Farmer’s Fight”
Favorite Aggie tradition?
Muster
Favorite thing to do in Aggieland?
Go to the Chicken
If you could eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
T-bone steak


Junior Yell Candidates

Keller Cox
Construction science sophomore

Why do you want to be a yell leader?

I realized that it’s something that you can give back to the university by serving in this position, and A&M has given me so much that I thought, “You know what, I might as well try to give back.”  And so I think this is the best way you can do that.

Favorite yell?

“Locomotive”

Favorite Aggie tradition?

Muster

Favorite thing to do in Aggieland?

My favorite thing to do is walk to class and say “Howdy!”

If you could eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Chicken, because you can fry it, you can grill it, you can put it in a soup. It’s a pretty universal food.

 


Hayes Duffy

Political science sophomore

Why do you want to be a yell leader?

I think that these guys have a platform that is held up by the 60,000 students that go here and that are behind them. Their five voices together can’t even come close to filling the stadium, but the 12th Man does it routinely every Saturday in the fall. If elected yell leader, I want to stand for respect, loyalty and integrity and I want to use my position to glorify God, who gave me the ability and the opportunity to try.

Favorite Yell?

“Old Army Fight”

Favorite Aggie tradition?

 Midnight Yell 

Favorite thing to do in Aggieland?

Going to sports games – football, baseball and basketball. 

If you could eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be? 

Chicken fingers

 


 

Jacob Huffman

Sports conditioning sophomore

Why do you want to be a yell leader?

Because through my time here in Texas A&M I’ve absolutely fallen in love with the traditions and the core values that it represents, or that they hold, and I want to represent those.

Favorite Yell?

“BTHO”

Favorite Aggie tradition?

Silver Taps

Favorite thing to do in Aggieland?

I really enjoy going to Harry’s and dancing.

If you could eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Pasta – lots of pasta and chicken alfredo.
