COACH COLE ON DREW: "During his senior state meet for cross country, Drew fell, dislocated his shoulder, got up and finished the race. Not only did he finish, but he didn't let anyone pass him after the fall and was a varsity scorer for a team that won the state meet. I'm looking forward to Drew bringing that toughness and determination to practice each day as a Falcon."
