Sport you’d love to play but can’t?


What are you looking forward to most this year?

I’m excited to see what the young guys on our team can do, like in 2019 we had a strong senior class but a strong support cast from the underclassmen as well. I have a feeling this year will be a lot like that one.. but with a PIAA ring. #ChainGang
