What does missing out on your senior lacrosse season mean to you?

“Missing this last senior season really hurts, and I’m definitely still trying to wrap my head around it. Lacrosse isn’t necessarily my sport, but it still pains me that I’m going to miss it.”

What was your reaction when MHSAA announced the Spring sports season was canceled?

“When I first heard that the season was canceled, I was more bummed out than I thought I would be. Lacrosse was new to me this year and while I am bummed about not being able to try something new, I feel worse for the guys who have been playing a long time.”

What have sports meant to you throughout your high school career?

Sports have been an escape from the stress of school and homework. I always built strong relationships with teammates and many of them I’d consider to be great friends. They’re always there to back you up, and I really value that.”

What is your proudest accomplishment as a Ranger?

“It definitely would be earning All-Conference and All-District for soccer, but I think an accomplishment for myself would be being a leader for the soccer team and pushing the guys to be better players.”

What are you going to miss most about playing for FHC?

“For the most part, I’m going to miss playing with guys I have classes with and guys that I have made great memories with. I will also miss the pride that comes with saying you play for and go to FHC.”

What would you say to underclassmen who still have time left playing for FHC?

“I know it is super cliche, but you really have to take in the moment and enjoy every bit of it because it really does fly by. Most importantly is to play to win and leave it all out there.”

Lastly, is there anything you want to say to the FHC community?

“The support and atmosphere around the games and players are unreal. I really enjoyed walking through the neighborhoods during the parade and feeling just how much the community pushes our teams forward.”
