Honoring our Seniors

As we all know, Saturday marks the final home game of the season for this year's senior class.   They have toiled, worked hard, grown and proudly represented our school on the field of play. 

They have let their play on the field and in the classroom do their talking for them.

Some of these players have had the opportunity to bask in the limelight while others' accomplishments have taken place behind the scenes.

This year's class includes 18 graduating seniors.   

==========================================

I would like to propose a little project for our fellow DTNers.

I suggest that we DTNers show our respects by posting a thought about each of these players below (at least one post per player). Hopefully, we'll be able to cover all 18.  

Those of you who know the players personally or know their families or are from the same town/city are encouraged to share their insights.  Feel free to write as much or as little as you would like.

Remember, Google is your friend

(Note to self: I hope this works, otherwise its going to be really embarrassing for you.)
