 I asked her how she felt about our team going to the playoffs and she said,”Oh, it makes me so happy that our school is going to playoffs.” With a big smile on her face. This is her senior year her last year to be out there with the guys on the sideline, I asked her how that makes her feel and she responded , “I’m so glad that for my senior year im getting to watch my school break records but most of all I love watching my friends play their hearts out on that field ” This year the boys have been working very hard for where they are right now the fans and parents can’t wait for this friday night playoff game .
