Nicholas J. Sutton is the son of Ty and Amy Sutton, of Carrollton. He has a brother Nathan who is a sophomore and a sister, Mariah who is in the fifth-grade.
In school Sutton is a part of the P7 Bible Club, National Honor Society and Middle School Mentoring Program. Outside of school he is a member of the Minerva Apostolic Church and attends Purpose Institute Bible Training School.

When asked who has influenced him, Sutton answered “From a young age my parents have taught me work ethic and discipline which have carried over into every aspect of my life. My pastor, Tim Gropp and my mentor and great friend Andrew Prendergast have taught me how to be a disciple of Jesus and how to love people in a deep way.”
His advice for success in life? “True success in life is measured by the influence that one has on other people. In order to have a true life of success, one must build their life on the “chief cornerstone, Jesus Christ.” When one does this, accompanied with a hard work ethic and discipline, there is no limit to the influence and success they can achieve.”
