Maddux Swenson, a 7-year-old second-grader at Chamberlin Elementary School in Stephenville, paused to pose with his own chalkboard before starting his first day of the school year Wednesday. His chalkboard shows some of his favorite things: TV show, Pokemon; movie, Dennis the Menace; book, Cat in the Hat; and food, steak. It also has a "When I grow up" category, to which his answer was "A pro football (and) baseball player." Maddux's parents are Justin and Karter Swenson, who posted this shot on Twitter. Justin is Stephenville High School's head baseball coach and an assistant football coach.
