And just like that, my senior year is coming to an end. It felt like just yesterday that I was starting summer camp for football.
While this year marked my last year at BR as a student, it also marked my last year of playing football. The season was special as it felt like it was never going to end. I have made memories and friendships that I will never forget. I will never forget after practice receiver drills and meetings with Coach Dino. People may not remember this team in the coming years, but it will always have a special place in my heart.
This year was a rollercoaster of excitement for me. Along with playing football as a senior, my workload was on near overload. That is, for the first semester at the very least. Whether it was prepping for a Bro Hayes physics test or submitting my college applications, senior year was a lot to handle.
There are so many things I can touch on in this article. Homecoming, the Marist game, or even Career Day, but that wouldn’t touch on my experience.
My last dance as a senior.
Entering my senior year, one thing I really looked forward to was my final year of BRTV. Ever since I joined, I felt that everything was building towards my senior year. Nothing will ever surpass my lacrosse call on an Aidan O’Connor goalie goal. (It’s on Twitter if you want to check it out.) By the time senior year rolled around, I was more confident and experienced. BRTV may not be over, but as I continue my broadcasting career, I will never forget what Mr. Creed and BRTV have taught me.
In closing, there is really only one way I can describe my senior year and high school as a whole. Ferris Bueler once said, “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”
Never forget what it’s like to be a Crusader. Be exceptional wherever you go.
What a wonderful article Liam! I love the fact that you are leaving Brother Rice as a confident young man because of all your experiences and friendships. And I really love the last sentence of your article. If you live by that as you journey through life, you will be successful! Congratulations on all you’ve accomplished. Best wishes for a bright and rewarding future.
