Dwight said, “I thank God for blessing me with no serious injury and for blessing me with loving hardworking parents who always found a way to come and support me at events. I also thank my grandparents for coming from Chicago to see my games. My teammates and friends at West Ottawa were there through all the ups and downs which I appreciate greatly. Most of all I thank my coaches throughout the years who taught me to be strong and reach out in life for my goals.”
