Without my teammates and coaches I wouldn’t be the player I am or student I am in Comp”. “What are you going to miss most about playing on this field?”. “I’m going to miss playing with my brothers, not everyone can experience a relationship like this with their team, it’s like a family.”. “Do you think you gave it your all for the last game at home?”. “I think I did, the score shows that everyone was working hard on both ends. I scored my first touchdown catching this year as a receiver. Everyone did an amazing job overall.”.
