WHAT MEMORIES DO YOU TAKE AWAY WITH YOU AS YOU LEAVE HIGH SCHOOL?
“This year scoring my first touchdown in my first game. That’s a big memory I have for sports. Last year with the pandemic we didn’t even have a football season. This year, to play a full season and finish 9-0, it was great.”
WHAT HAS THE SENIOR YEAR BEEN LIKE FOR YOU?
“It’s been a great senior year. Previously, our football team has not been the best but this year we came off great. We had an undefeated regular season which exceeded far past our expectations.”
WHAT ADVICE DO YOU HAVE FOR YOUR FELLOW STUDENTS?
“It’s all about balance between school and friends and athletics. It’s all about saving time for homework, to study but you have to work hard on the field too.”
