Football, Soccer





Favorite high school memory:

"My favorite memory was playing a soccer game on a Friday afternoon in Harrisonville and driving back for the opening kickoff of the first football game of the season."

Coach/Teacher who made the biggest impact:

"Jeff Snow, the trainer at Liberty North, has had the biggest impact. I would spend most of my school day in his office talking and learning."

Thing you will miss the most about high school:

"Just the sports. I will most likely not play in college and it will be hard not being on a team again."

Best part about high school and this community:

"The best part about the high school is how I knew most everybody and they kinda knew me."
