WHAT MEMORIES DO YOU HAVE LEAVING HIGH SCHOOL SOON?
“Our homecoming game against St. Dominic Savio is probably my favorite memory. We were grateful that we had a season at all and got to play as many games as we did. We’re grateful for what we had. When we started again with athletics, it was the first time in a long time we started to feel normal again. The same happened when we got to return to school here, it felt great.”
WHAT MESSAGE DO YOU HAVE TO STUDENTS AS THE PANDEMIC CONTINUES TO IMPACT HIGH SCHOOL SPORTS AND EDUCATION?
“Just work hard and control what you can control. A lot of situations will not be something you can control so you have to be able to work through it and persevere through anything.”
