Tonight’s sports segment was a little different. In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, sports reporter Jasmine Navarrete reached out to local high school athletes who embrace their cultural roots. These young athletes share their appreciation for their native language Spanish and the sense of family their Hispanic background helps create.

And switching gears to collegiate athletics, Jamsmine highlights a star athlete who embraces his culture. NAU kicker Luis Aguilar, is going into his fifth year in the NAU football program. He grew up in Nogales, Arizona close to the Mexican border and those strong Hispanic values is what he carries every time he steps on the field. The values, the people and the culture is who he is and no matter where he goes for him, Nogales will always be home.
