From the Sideline
“AJ was voted team captain this football season by his teammates. He is a team player first and is always there for his teammates. He works extremely hard on the field and in the classroom. He is everything we want in a player in our program. AJ was also voted First Team All-League for offense (offensive lineman) and 2nd team All-League for defense (defensive line). He also received an All-State nomination.”
