Interview with Reese
What do you love to do?
I love playing lacrosse, its fun being part of such a fast pace, incredible sport.
Why do you love lacrosse?
I like hanging out with all my teammates outside of school, its a good way to get closer to them. Being a part of something we all enjoy and appreciate.
What initially made you want to play lacrosse?
When I first quit baseball I felt like I needed a more fast pace sport. it was brought to my attention that lacrosse was really fast and seems like an interesting sport. I also heard brandon mullens played lacrosse and he was my favorite coppell football players at the time, and he inspired me to play it as well.
Whats makes you want to play lacrosse in college?
Growing up watching college lacrosse it has made me want to play. Taking a sport I love to the next level, makes me wanna work on my game and be the best I can be.
What inspires you while you are playing?
God inspires me to play through him ad through his grace. I cant play without him. also when I look up in the stands, my girlfriend is always sitting there cheering me on. I play hard for her because she also inspires me with always supporting me through everything.
What do you think about while playing?
I think about the game, my adrenaline is pumping through my body. Its hard to focus on anythhing but playing my game and scoring.
How do you get prepared for games?
I listen to some pump up music. Get jesus in my head, sometimes read the bible or listen to christian music. I shoot and just get ready to play the game I love.
Why do you play the position you play?
I play midfield because It's fun I love playing it. I like to run, it gets u mentally tough and when your tired that you can't give up because u can't let the team down.
Since you play football, was the transtition from football to lacrosse difficult?
The transition from football to lacrosse is very very rough because football your not running for a long tome in football but in lacrosse thats all it is. But since im a reciever and a middie the catching is very similar so that part of it is easier.
Did scoring the last goal in the jesuit game impact your life?
It was nice scoring the winning goal against my revial team. But its just one goal, theres many to come, you just have to move past it. It was my time to shine then, and so I did.
Why he inspirers me
The horn went off for last play of the game
He was in the game for the fame
His head was down ready to take off
For the face off
Fans cheering and screaming
As he took flight
He got the ground ball
with players chasing him down the field
He came up to the first defender
rolled right past him
the second and the third
now the fourth
The defender was hopeless
He was going up against reese walker
and as figured he got right past him
now just him and the goalie
2 seconds on the clock
2 to 2
against the best team in the league
jesuit, revivals for years
He began reaching back with his stick
gathering the power everyone knows he has
he was shaking and sweating
of fear of missing the winning shot
As hard as he could
he launched the ball out of his stick
the goalie wasn't ready for what was coming for him
the ball came flying 75 m/p at him
The goalie hesitated
he couldn't see where it was coming
the hesitation cost him the game
THE BALL WENT IN THE GOAL
The buzzer went off to signal the end of the game
screaming came from the sidelines
his teammates crashed the field
i came sprinting too
As his teammates lifted him up praising him
I came over to congratulate him
He said i did it for you and the lord
as he hugged me in glory
