Hi! I'm Xavier, and I debated for Walt Whitman HS in Bethesda, MD. Circuitdebater was a great resource while I debated, both for drills and for ideas on how to structure positions. I've uploaded positions I think are useful tools, work I'm particularly proud of, and otherwise interesting or valuable arguments. All the work is my own, unless otherwise noted; much of it was strongly influenced by Bob, Preetham, Varun, Emily, Michael, Daniel, Tom, Becca, and Chessman. I strongly recommend using these positions as jumping-off points, rather than simply reading them as-is. Doing your own research will help you more effectively deploy arguments, lead you to higher-quality evidence I just didn't find, and avoid all the errors I made. But hey, debate is yours now, not mine. Do with these as you will :)

Feel free to check out my wikis from 2016-2017 and 2015-2016. There you will find cites for positions I read but did not write. Also, please feel free to reach out if you have any questions or are having difficulty finding resources!

[in progress!! will finish uploading eventually, i promise!! ap week is a thing]
