Who was your favorite teacher and why? I’d have to say Mrs. Campbell because of all the great memories I have made in her class. She comes off as a very strict teacher, but she still likes to make class fun.

How has athletics made you a better student? I would say participating in athletics has made me a better student by furthering my bond with my classmates. I felt like our baseball team was my family and that I would not trade that for the world.

It is Senior Night. Ready, set, go. I would not have wanted to play baseball with any other people than the people you see before me. I will never forget the memories I have made on and off this field with my teammates. I am proud to be a part of this family and I am proud to be a War Hawk!
