Suzanne states, “High school sports have given me many opportunities over the past four years. They have taught me leadership skills and responsibility….Playing sports over the years also kept me out of trouble. Instead of spending my time watching television, I spend my time working out or practicing for the big game…..One of the biggest influences in high school sports are your coaches. They are the ones who will teach you many skills, the ones who might get mad at you, but always want the best for you.”
