Student Spotlight – Josh Urban ’17

Loves About Brebeuf

I love the opportunities we are given as students. Being able to choose what classes we take, what clubs we are a part of, and what sports we play gives students the ability to explore what path they will take outside of Brebeuf.

Favorite Class

AP Psychology with Mrs. Bobis has to be my favorite class I’ve taken at Brebeuf. Mrs. Bobis was always so much fun in class, and she always left me with a smile on my face.

Future Plans

I’m undecided on where I’m attending college, but I will be majoring in Business and continuing running Cross Country and Track in college.

Teams & Co-Curriculars

Varsity Cross Country
Varsity Track & Field
Entrepreneurship Club
Ultimate Frisbee

Random Facts 

I worked as a lifeguard over the summer.

I have a large scar on my foot from a bicycle accident when I was younger.

What has been your favorite Brebeuf experience or most memorable moment so far?

This past fall, during Cross Country, I helped lead our team to our fourth straight appearance at the State meet. Having my last high school Cross Country meet be at the State meet was a truly memorable experience, and having some of my best friends racing along side me made it even more meaningful.

Any big spring break plans? 

I am going to the Dominican Republic with my family and a few friends. We’re staying in a nice resort with a lot of fun activities to do, so I’m expecting to have a great time.

Ultimate Frisbee is now a varsity sport.  How did you get involved?

I’ve been playing frisbee since a friend showed me how to play in middle school. When I was a freshman, I was introduced to the club team by alum and former cross country teammate, Drew Okenfuss ’15.

As a senior, what advice do you have for all the new Braves in the Class of 2021?

Make sure you take advantage of the opportunities that are available to you at Brebeuf. Somewhere out there, there is a club, sport, or other activity that you can participate in and feel welcomed. Brebeuf offers a very accepting atmosphere, so don’t be afraid to branch out!
