Felix debated PF at Walt Whitman High School in Bethesda, Maryland. Felix accumulated seven career gold bids, making it to semifinals at Blake and quarterfinals of UK, UPenn, and Bronx. Felix also broke at the Gold TOC and made it to octafinals. Felix was top-speaker atHarvard, Lexington, and Bronx.
Felix will start at Yale in the fall, where he hopes to study political science or international relations. Debate's focus on public policy kindled these interests.
Felix has coached middle school PF for Atlas Debate since my junior year, and a team he coached broke at the Middle School TOC. Felix also worked at NSD as an instructor this summer. Felix's favorite part of coaching is teaching debate strategy: how to build cases for different judges, what arguments to collapse on, and how to weigh effectively in high-level rounds.
