Corpus Christi, Texas — A junior at Synthon High School is heading to the public after ranking in the top 16 in the United States with an instant speech.
“I couldn’t wait to represent Texas on the national stage, like’going to Indianapolis’,” said 15-year-old Blake Kaeser.
The first national stage for Synthon High School FFA and Koether.
So what exactly is speaking instantly?
“They give us a choice from 12 topics, and I have the ability to flip three,” Koether said. “I chose one of these three, but I don’t know what will happen to these topics.”
He prepares a four to six minute speech in 30 minutes, then answers the equivalent of five minutes of questions from the judge.
“Break must be able to think whimsically,” said Cheryl Handy, Koether’s ag teacher. “He must be able to think from the top of his head, so he throws various topics at him and gives him something to study.”
She said it would come naturally at the age of 15.
“There is no break training,” Handy said. “Break can talk about everything you throw at him.”
His friend agreed.
“Break is 100 mph on every topic,” said Junior Andecker.
Don’t argue with him because I’m not going to win, “said junior Shane Baylor. “He confirms that he wins.”
Koether won the state in July.
“I haven’t seen anyone head to the public for the tournament, so it’s a really great and really great opportunity,” Handy said.
Last week in October, he wants Synthon to regain the national title.
“I want to run for a regional office next year and a state office next year,” Coser said.
