Varsity Baseball · White Hawks Baseball Senior Salute – Tyler Stevenson

Tyler Bids Farewell

Throughout high school I was always told to try and remember every enjoyable moment I could. I didn’t think much to this because I was still thinking that I have a few years left so it really doesn’t matter. Then another year went by and still people that have graduated and other people were almost pressing me to have fun while you’re still in it. I was almost getting confused because I thought they didn’t know that I have 2 years left of high school. Once Junior year hit you could kinda look back and see everything that you’ve done through sports. In my junior year I finally became a starter for Baseball and have already been a 3 year starter for Wrestling. It started to feel weird of how old I was and to see how many years I’ve been playing baseball and wrestling. Once I saw my brother finish his last wrestling match and his last baseball game I realized that I only have 1 year left. I made sure that I made the most out of my senior wrestling season by practicing non stop throughout summer and fall. I was able to make it to the state tournament for the first time in my life which was a huge goal of mine. Then after wrestling ended I was super excited for my last sports season. Baseball has always been my favorite sport and the team this year was looking very good. We got a few practices in and everything was looking good. However, the pandemic would sadly end the season and my last baseball season would never happen. At first I didn’t really know what to think of it but looking back I was glad that I got to play all of those years and make lots of memories. I probably would have made a ton of memories this season but stuff happens and you just have to move on. I am just glad that I got to participate and be a part of a program for so many years. Sports have made me into the person I am today and I would do nothing different if I had the chance to go back.
