What are the pros/cons of playing tight end on the football team and center on the basketball team?
“For football, I can catch passes from my quarterback, Cadian Vang, but then we have to attend the film session the next morning for a swimming workout. For basketball, I could play with my friends on the court because we all got along well. I didn’t like running the sprints in practice because Coach (Mark) Tomashek wanted us to be conditioned.”
