Unfortunately, officials determined he had to sit out for the rest of the game. His role in the game was crucial to our win.

After we missed the playoffs my freshman year, I remember my team being called into my coach’s office. None of us were happy; we knew we were too good to not still be practicing. We could all see the seriousness on our coach’s face. We had no clue what we were about to be told.
