Dylan said, “I thank my family and friends who have supported me through the years. I especially thank my coaches, starting in third grade, who pushed me to always work hard to be my very best! I thank my dad, for believing in me and encouraging me to always give 100% in and out of season. I thank coach VanEssen and coach Ritsema for everything you did to make me a better player and keeping me focused on my training. Most importantly, I owe a lot to my teammates (my friends) who have been with me through the years and kept me motivated on and off the field. Without our combined success, I would not be playing here today. Thanks for the great memories. I am proud to represent my teammates and the Kenowa Hills Knights in the All-Star Game today.”
