MacArthur High School
Endre Fisher of MacArthur is one of the few athletes who is involved in three varsity sports. He is also a front-runner academically and is involved in an array of other student activities.
Fisher was a member of the Generals boys varsity soccer team this fall. The squad went on to the Nassau Class B semifinal before losing to Garden City in triple overtime. A starter, Fisher was credited with an unselfish attitude and the ability to play at any position at any time, impressing his coach, Howie Greenblatt.
"Endre's first concern is for the team, and his 'play me wherever I will help the team' attitude kept him in the starting lineup all season," Greenblatt said.
Greenblatt, who is also Fisher's wrestling coach, says that he brings the same unselfish attitude to the grapplers. Based on the success of both programs, it seems like Fisher's "lead by example" attitude has a positive effect on his teammates as well.
Off the field, and in the classroom and extracurricular activity arena, Fisher also exhibits his very unassuming but very competitive nature. He has a 101.4 scholastic average, ranks number nine in a senior class of 220 students, and has a combined SAT score of 1180. He is a member of the National Honor Society, and was selected to the All-County Band four times.
Fisher is also a Peer Leader, a member of an elite group of seniors selected by faculty members to help with community work and to help young students adjust to high school life. As a member of the spring track team, he was named captain by his teammates and voted "most dedicated member of the track team."
Fisher hopes to attend the Air Force Academy next summer.
