ABOUT DEREK

Hey everyone! My name is Derek Victory and I’m from Weston, Florida, which is located right next door to the Everglades. I was originally born in Buffalo, New York but moved to Florida when I was five. I am from a family of four and have an older sister. While at home, I love taking my boat out on in the lake, playing some video games, and just relaxing and enjoying not being busy every second of the day.

Each day the Academy is a busy one. I play quarterback on the football team and have been playing football since I was five years old. Football has taught me so many life lessons that can’t be learned in the classroom. Speaking of school, I am a Government major here specifically focusing on Public Policy and Law. I am also a member of the Academy’s Model U.N. club. I’ve wanted to be in the Coast Guard since I was only five years old after hearing stories from a family friend, so it’s neat to currently be in the position I’m in.
