Eighteen year old Hilton Nittsche competes in bocce, bowling, basketball and athletics (track and field) in the Heart of East Texas area. The very active athlete joined SOTX in 2010 after he saw how much fun a friend of his was having as a competitor. Since becoming a part of the movement, Nittsche has made plenty of friends with fellow athletes and volunteers.  The Brenham High School 11th grader has a reputation around town as someone who will help anyone who could use a hand. He assists with set up and break down at Spring Games in Brenham every year. He also has a job mowing lawns in his community. In his spare time, Nittsche loves to hunt, ride four-wheelers and watch football.
