Favorite high school sports moment so far: “While playing Baker County the running back received a screen pass and I was able to trip him up in open space but breaking my arm in the act. I never told coach or subbed out of the game. A few plays later a wideout makes a big catch on my head leading only to three points. Next drive I caught an interception with a broken arm to keep us in the game later going into OT.”
