Maize’s Avery Dover – Prep Performance of the Month – Presented by Hog Wild

By Matt Browning

Avery Dover of Maize was chosen as the Hog Wild Performance of the Month for May. Dover is the 5A Lincoln Douglas Debate Champion, two-time Speak Regional Champion, and three-time Speaker Podiumist.

“I started debate freshman year, however I always knew I was going to take that class whenever I could,” Dover said. “I fell in love with it pretty quickly.
I wouldn’t necessarily consider myself pretty good, however my first big success was winning the state Lincoln Douglas debate tournament my sophomore year, and then continuing on to do well at the national tournament.”

Dover also participates in cheerleading and chess club at Maize. As a freshman, he went to cheer camp and was nominated to the NCA All-American team.
He is a two-time NCA All-American.

“I got into cheerleading freshman year,” Dover said. “I did not have any other clubs and activities at the time. So one day when I went to school and heard there were cheer tryouts I decided why not, and fell in love.”

Next year, Dover plans to attend the University of Mary Washington in Virginia to study Pre-Law: Philosophy to hopefully become a lawyer with a constitutional focus.
