There is no doubt that Erick Stutz is fired up to take the crown

One of the eight contestants, Erick Stutz will be portraying Robin Williams’ famous larger-than-life character, Mrs. Doubtfire. His escort and dance partner is Emily Sedgwick. His manager is Adriana D’amore.

“I wanted to be Mrs. Doubtfire because I admire Robin Williams’ ability to make everyone happy, even at the expense of his own happiness. Even the people that look the happiest can show pain, too. His suicide shined a light on this issue and showed that is is a lot bigger epidemic,” said Stutz.

Stutz is excited for the talent part and to represent Linganore as part of this competition. Featured in his talent is Will Coletti, Luke Freeman, Jon Wheat, Mike Mauro and Jordan Swoyer.

“I wanted to do Mr. Linganore because I knew none of my friends were doing it, and I wanted to represent the athletic community. I was nominated, so I took it as a challenge to try and win,” said Stutz.

Stutz is a member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and participates in the Student Focus Group that works to address diversity and school culture issues.

During his time at Linganore, he has played lacrosse, basketball, and football. He was a member of The Tribe for the fall football season.

Outside of school, Stutz loves to volunteer. He interns with special education students at Rock  Creek School, volunteers at soup kitchens, and is a coach for a club lacrosse team.

Next year, Stutz will be playing lacrosse at Wheeling Jesuit University. He is going to  major in psychology and minor in education.  

“I think that I will win Mr. Linganore because of my outgoing personality. I like to make people laugh and I am talkative and good at conversations,” said Stutz.
