Two Tigers, Kelley and Rives have their say
Now to our next two Senior Spotlights and let's shine that on a pair of Blountstown baseball seniors, first Clark Kelley.
Clark coming off his signing Friday with Thomas University in Thomasville, Georgia. He writes to me "I love the lessons that baseball teaches you: diligence, patience, perseverance etc."
As for what he misses about his senior season, Clark writes "I will miss having fun playing and enjoying playing games and practicing with my team. "
Now to Clark's teammate Javien Rives.
Javian signing this past Friday with Andrews College in Cuthbert, Georgia. He writes to me "Baseball has always been special to me.
It has helped me through a lot of things. It's crazy how the virus ruined the chance to get a ring for my coaches and my teammates. I really believed we had a great chance of becoming champions this year. I will miss all my teammates and coaches from this year it's crazy how all of the hard work came to a end."
Javian adds "I'm very thankful for coach Horne and all the other coaches helping to me become a great player but even a better person. I wish every senior in the country could get a chance to play at the next level and have a lot of success!"
