My Senior year of high school was one of the best years of my life by far. I experienced so much throughout the year and grew so much as a person, experiencing new things and learning lessons along the way. I had a lot of hard times followed by some of the best times which introduced me to some people that have changed my life in many ways. I am thankful for everyone and everything that happened to me Senior year because it has made me who I am today. It all started the end of my Junior year of high school. I had been working out for some time, going to the gym and trying to lose weight and get in shape for football.

I put everything I had into it and didn’t look back. I went to conditioning every day and pushed myself, becoming faster and stronger, losing weight and becoming happier. Over the course of those few months I lost forty pounds and was in the best shape I had ever been. August came around and we started practicing with full pads, which meant it was time to start hitting! We began to practice every day, getting ready to play our first game of the season against Akron North. The first day of Senior year starts and it goes just like every other first day of school. I go to all my classes, sit there and do nothing all day long. After the first week, it starts to go by extremely fast. We had practice every day after school, which I always looked forward especially
