Spencer said, “Playing four years of high school football has been some of the best times of my life. When you’re on that field it’s just you and 10 of your brothers (one actually was my brother) fighting for that extra yard or that big play. It’s the greatest game in the world.” He added, “In no other sport do you learn more about the character of a man than in football and I’m so fortunate that I get to play for four more years.”

Spencer thanked the “entire Lawrence community” for supporting him over the years.  “A very special thanks to all of my coaches from the start of Rocket football throughout varsity football.  Each one of my coaches has inspired and motivated me to strive for the best.” He reserved special thanks for Coach Amthor, “I would like to thank you very much for helping me get the opportunity to play in the All Star game and also for helping prepare me to play college football.” And said, “I would not have been successful in football if it were not for all of my teammates.  I would like to thank them for all of their support.”  He also thanked his parents and family for “all of their love and support.”
