Nate had many people to thank for his success. “First of all, I need to thank God for all that He has done for me. Without Him, none of this would have been possible. Next, I would like to thank my mom and my dad for coming to every sporting event I have ever played in. I also need to thank my brother and sister for putting up with me and all the traveling and spectating that they had to do. I want to thank all of my relatives for their support, too. Finally, I want to thank the Chelsea Football coaches for the time they invested in our team, for their dedication to the traditions of the Chelsea football program and their high expectations of me and my teammates. Thanks to Mrs. Bush for all the dinners and to Coach Walsh for sharing his expertise with me. And a very special thanks to Coach Bush. I want to thank him for his guidance, his patience and his desire for me and my teammates to succeed. Because of his leadership, I am here.”
