WHAT WAS THE SENIOR YEAR LIKE?

“It was very different with us having to wear masks but whenever we were all together it felt normal.”

WHAT MEMORIES DO YOU HAVE LEAVING HIGH SCHOOL?

“My last year playing football, it’s been hard knowing this was the last year playing this sport. But it’s also exciting being able to continue to play baseball in college so it’s also exciting at the same time. It’s awesome to get the opportunity to play at the next level which I’ve dreamt about since I was a little kid.”
