Lawrence Co. Head Coach Travis Feltner
“… So proud of our seniors. People don’t realize how much these young men have been through over the past 14 months. Just a mental and emotional roller coaster. Our program is not for everyone and not that many make it all the way through.”
“… Jacob and Ethan have been multi year contributors and have shouldered a lot of veteran type duties this spring, they’ve both battled through some injuries and given us a great chance to have a great season.”
“… Coming into this year Nick Collinsworth hadn’t reached the point of being able to crack a varsity lineup (playing behind a lot of good players) But he has taken his opportunity this spring and been a huge factor in us winning a lot of ballgames.”
“… I can’t say enough good things about Jackson Mathieu. He has sacrificed so much and has stayed the course all the way through. Not many kids are willing to do those things. He has contributed in more ways than most realize. I believe his teammates have a great deal of respect for how much he has improved.”
“ So proud of all four of these young men and they will always be a part of our family and programs”
