Senior Spotlight – Alex Creasey




By Patrick Helmick

Alex Creasy is an unstoppable force in the classroom and on the wrestling mat. Alex in his senior wrestling season finished third in the state individuals meet and helped carry his wrestling team to the fourth consecutive team state championship this year. On top of all his successes and extracurricular activities, Alex also works at a local business, Duck In Car Wash, and volunteers his time at the Milford Food Bank. The time management skills do not stop there, because Alex is also an honor roll student and is currently taking four AP courses.

Creasey’s main focus at Milford High School is to maximize his education and achieve as high as he can in his academics. “I want to get the best grades I can in order to be in the habit for college,” said Creasey.

The quote that motivates Creasey stands as a perfect metaphor for all of his hard work. Creasey said, “My favorite quote is by Art Williams and he says, ‘I am not telling you it is going to be easy, I am telling it is going to be worth it.’ This has to do with wrestling because it was never easy, it was hard, but in the end with a championship it was worth it.”

When asked about his favorite Teacher or Coach at the high school, Creasey’s favorite coach is Head Wrestling Coach Parsley. “Coach Parsley has coached me for two years and has been extremely supportive. I remember him giving speeches and quotes to us that help us grow in more than just wrestling and this has helped prepare me for what is next in our lives.”

Looking forward, Creasey has been accepted to the University of Delaware. At UD, Creasey is excited to be focusing on a Mechanical Engineering degree. We all wish Alex Creasey much success in his senior year and look forward to the success that will follow him.
