Nick said, “I want to thank my parents for making countless sacrifices during my high school career as well as supporting me at every game. A big thanks goes to the Father Gabriel Richard community, as well as Coach Lemons and Coach Lawrence for giving me a chance and getting me noticed to play in this game. Finally I want to thank Jesus Christ because he gave me the ability to play football and blessed me with success and the opportunity to play in this All Star Game.”
