This upcoming season has taken a hit none of us expected. I never thought that my junior season could’ve been my last. Season or no season, I will keep my drive and love of the game to keep getting better.

The goal for this year is to go undefeated no matter how many games we play, five, eight or even 10. I trust all of my teammates to leave it all on the field and strive for the win every time we hit the field.

Football has been there for me through it all.

I love the game for the memories I have experienced and for what it still gives to me today. My dream like any other high school football player is to make it to the league, but knowing football has an end is an important thing to keep in my mind.

I strive to play the sport I love for four more years and receive a good education while doing so.
