It’s crazy to think that this year is over. It feels like yesterday that I was starting summer football camp as a freshman.

As time flies, you don’t realize the moments and memories that you create. From rivalry games to messing around at practice with your friends, these memories are ones I will never forget and will forever cherish.

I am forever grateful for the friends I created because of football, the friendships I shared and the memories after games. The team was like a community. We learned to love each other and grew as a family.

Tom Brady officially announced his retirement in the beginning of February. Brady is already the oldest quarterback to play the game, but his retirement was no surprise to all. Brady is 44 years old and has played a total of 22 seasons in the NFL. The toll football takes on one’s body is no joke. Hits, falls, and emotions could mentally and physically harm a man for the rest of his life.

Brady already has a family he needs to raise. Retirement is an understandable route to take in order to raise your family. Brady’s decision to retire was […]

The Mustangs (19-10) have the size where it counts. They are led by Morez Johnson, an Illinois commit, and James Brown at center. […]
