Football is great for a community because it brings people together and enjoy the atmosphere of Friday night Lights. It benefits both the community and the players, especially when it’s a big game, like a rivalry in the stands are packed.

My favorite memory is when my teammate Sam Frame Jr scooped up a fumble and almost scored at the end of the Notre Dame game in the 22-23 season.
