After Humphrey graduated, I saw it as clearing the road for me. I knew he was the one that was stopping me from winning the title, so when he was gone it was a bit of a lift off my shoulders.
Hopefully, I can go in there and earn a starting spot my first year. Maybe we can compete for a title.
The dream for everyone in your senior season is to go out on top. I put so much work into it these last four years and before that. To get to this point with not just myself but with my teammates also makes it that much sweeter.
It's confidence. You've got to know you've got to be able to get away in big matches, and that means something to me. It's the biggest match I've been in since high school, the state championship match, and I got out in the state finals.
I just went harder and harder, picking up the pace. I feel real good and my body feels good.
It was a great accomplishment for our class. To get second is nothing to be ashamed of.
