his story:

Micah shared that his favorite part about attending Tallassee High School is learning about new things and hanging out with his friends. At Tallassee, Micah is on the Football, Basketball, Wrestling and Track teams, participates in Choir, is a member of the National Honor Society, and is a part of the Junior MANRRS organization at Auburn University. He shared, “A lot of people don’t know that I draw comic book art digitally on my computer and iPad.” He advises incoming high school freshmen to “get out there and make new friends, try a new hobby, and be yourself.”

PG (parental guidance) rating:

He shared that he gets his best advice from his father who encourages him to not be bothered about every little thing, or let other things distract him from his goals. Micah stated, “A lot of people inspire me throughout my life, one of them is Kobe Bryant. He inspired me to try my hardest and never give up.”

parents’ perspective:

Micah’s parents, Kerry and Michelle Cole, shared, “Micah has a good heart, and he loves to help others. Micah is not afraid to stand alone or speak up for what’s right. One thing that makes Micah unique is helping his opponent after a hard hit or wrestling match. He is the first one there to help them back up. Yes, he is the opponent, but he still helps them.”


Kerry and Michelle had this advice for other parents, “Let your child explore their interests but be that guiding light so they can know their potential. Don’t go along to get along. Think for yourself.”
