Class of 2021 senior goodbye


Coming out of middle school, I did not know what to expect when I arrived to Carroll my freshman year. With me being a kid living in West Philadelphia and going to middle school in Center City, going all the way up to Radnor, PA, to attend Carroll, I had to adapt to a lot of changes. Coming in with no friends was one of the hardest things I think I have ever had to do in life. Once I started football that summer going into the school year, I met a lot of new people.

Now that I look back on the four years I have been at Carroll, I see I did not make friends, I made brothers and sisters who I will always remember.

I really just want to thank the Carroll community for accepting me for who I was and helping me mature into the young man I am today.

I also want to give a big thanks to my parents for paying for me to attend such a great school.

Furthermore, I would like to thank the Carroll football staff and fans because they helped me get better on the field. The great football staff was always there for me and my teammates whenever we needed help on and off the field.

Also, I want to give thanks to the Pat-hearted fans for giving me and my teammates energy and being behind us even when things were rocky.

One of my favorite memories at Carroll was my sophomore year at the homecoming game. I was on the varsity football team and we beat Neumann Goretti on a game winning touchdown play. Also in that game, I got the final two sacks to stop their offense from winning that game.

Thank you, Archbishop Carroll, for an amazing 4 years. GO PATS!!!!!
