Tolsia Head Coach Todd Maynard
“… Senior night is always special and we honored four tonight. All of the Seniors bring a different dynamic to our team.”
- William Spaulding is our energy guy and will always hold a special place in my heart. He has been with us for two years. Great teammate.”
- Braxton Williams came out this year and has helped our team. I wish he would have played last year. He brings leadership and a great attitude every day.”
- Peyton Watts is a physical player and really brings out toughness in our younger guys. A four year football player and also participates in JROTC and still keeps his grades up.”
- Jacob Mollette is a four year basketball player and didn’t play much his first two years but didn’t let that bother him. He waited his turn and has turned into a very good player. He is one of the best leaders I have been around. All of our players look up to him and he brings it everyday. We will miss him when practice rolls around next year.”
