Garrett Erickson is a Mechanical Engineering Senior who will be graduating in Spring 2019. Garrett has been on the SDSU Aztecs Football team since his freshman year in 2015 as the backup kicker. He has been working in Dr. Camacho’s lab to obtain experience and put what he has learned in his ME courses to use. After he graduates, he plans to work on designing cars since he has been interested in cars since he was young. Garrett states that it has gotten easier every semester for him to balance football and academics because of his time management skills, “I always plan out when I am going to do homework or projects because of the little amount of time I get. I do not procrastinate but I do give myself extra time to do things in case I get side tracked.”
