Having the opportunity to play in ‘The Palace on the Praire’ has created some amazing memories for me that I will cherish forever. I’d like to thank coach Riley and coach Simmons for giving me the chance to showcase my talents on one of the biggest stages in the nation. I am grateful for my teammates and the relationships we’ve built, as well as the lessons I’ve learned on and off the field.”
