Q: What’s one word that sums up this past season?

A: Exciting

Q: What was the most memorable moment of the season, and why?

A: Beating Nashua South. It proved that we can beat good teams and that we were one of the good teams.

Q: Looking back on the season, the one-point loss to Nashua North may have been the difference between making and not making the playoffs. How do you look at the season: a success that you finished above .500, or disappointment that you didn’t make the playoffs?

A: A disappointment we didn’t make the playoffs.

Q: How meaningful was it for you to break the school’s all-time rushing record? And did you ever imagine you’d be able to do it?

A: It is meaningful to me now because I hold an all-time record at CHS, but I never gave it much thought before that because individual records don’t mean that much to me.

Q: Who was the unsung hero on your team, and why?

A: The entire offensive and defensive line … because they were usually much smaller than most of the other teams we played.
