A big shout out to Heidi Chambers and Debbie Durham for helping me run practices when I had to be quarantined. Thank you to the parents and BHS admins for being very supportive throughout the season. Most importantly, I thank God that we were even able to have a season. Many student athletes across the country weren’t so lucky.”
