What has this entire cancellation of season been like for you?
The cancellation of the season has been very tough. I was very excited for the opportunity to take over the Girard Trojan Baseball program. Myself and the rest of the coaching staff were very disappointed that we didn't get to have the season but completely understand and support all decisions that were made. Our coaching staff feels bad for all senior athletes that missed out on spring sports.
What were some key things you were really looking forward to in the 2020 season?
As a coaching staff we were very optimistic about the 2020 season. We were going to be a very young team with a lot of talent. All of our guys were very focused and motivated to be successful and were working very hard.
Who are some of those key players we should have looked out for this year?
Davis Davenport - Senior - Pitcher
Kaden Harrison - Junior - Catcher
Logan Thomas - Junior - Pitcher/OF
James Jubber - Junior - Pitcher
Wyatt Foley - Sophomore - Pitcher/OF
What now ?
At this point we are waiting to see what we can do this summer and hope to get to play some baseball. Our guys will be very motivated for next season and ready to get to work.
As a teacher what has this been like with school?
On the teaching side of things it has been an exciting challenge. I feel like as a school we made the very best out of a bad situation and gave our students a great opportunity to continue getting a quality education
