Coach Bell, our offensive coordinator, chose me to start over our tall, and lean junior Jaden Cook. Jaden had a terrible attitude and that was the only thing that kept him off the field. He was more talented athlete in my opinion, but his attitude kept him from reaching his full potential. Jaden wasn’t particularly happy with me starting. As we unloaded the buses, he smirked and murmured, “Don’t get you butt kicked out there.”

Fr. Pedro Arrupe’s motto “educating men and women for others “sends a strong message about putting others before yourself which is key in having a fulfilling, complete life.
