Two more seniors, Kristen Thompson and Kobi Long, have their say

WEWAHITCHKA/GRACEVILLE, FL (WJHG/WECP) Now to two more of our area Seniors, who deserve a little bit of a Spotlight. The first is Wewa softball senior Kristen Thompson!

Innovations Federal Credit Union Senior Sports Spotlight

"I think one of the reasons I love softball so much is it's not only taught me to do my best and to push me to my limits, but because of all that, it has also taught me to be a better person." Kristen says. "One of the main reasons I'm going to miss it so much is the people. My teammates, my coaches, all of it, I'm gonna miss the memories I've shared with them. I've basically been playing softball my whole life, and it's hard to imagine that it's actually really over!"

Kristen and the Lady Gators number one in the state when the season was shut down.

The second Senior Spotlight here shines on Poplar Springs baseball player Kobi Long.

"What I I love most about baseball is you have fun, with your team." Kobi tells us. "It's all about teamwork. Yes it's terrible to lose, but you also have fun doing it. It's good to win championships, we won a couple at Bonifay (youth ball) then some we lost. It's just a part of the game. At the end of the night, we're always going to be a team. Anybody needs us, we're always there for each other."

The Senior Sports Spotlight sponsored by Innovations Federal Credit Union.
