The time that we put in, putting in the work, getting this far in the season, and overcoming the different things we’ve overcome this year.

“And being with my coaches, building relationships with them, and building something special in the future. I think there’s a lot of value in the things that have happened this year and it’ll do us a good deed coming up on next year.”
