BHS grad recognized at Texas A&M Law School
Breckenridge High School graduate Christopher Hoskins was recognized earlier this year when he was named Student of the Week at Texas A&M University School of Law in Fort Worth.
Hoskins, a third-year law student at the school, was featured in an article in the school’s newsletter. He said in the article his favorite law class was Property Law which was taught by Professor Timothy M. Mulvaney.
When asked by the newsletter reporter about something his law school family would be surprised to know about him, Hoskins said it was that he won his free-fighting division in the 2005 Conquer Cancer martial Arts National championship Tournament held at the Trump Marina Hotel and Casino (renamed Golden Nugget in 2011) in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Hoskins said that, in the championship match, he defeated the fighter who had defeated his older brother, Robert, in the semi-finals.
In the article, he said, that after the fight, in tears, he dedicated his win to his older brother by saying, “That was for you.” The next year, his brother won the tournament and told him after the win, “That one was for you.”
Hoskins, who graduated from BHS in 2001, earned his Bachelor of Arts in Spanish from the University of Texas at Arlington. He will graduate from law school in May 2017 and take the bar exam next July.
