Senior Kade Harrison, 17, is the wide receiver and defensive end for the Viking Football Team.
“I’m excited and hoping for a good season,” said Harrison.
He has been playing football on and off since he was nine years old. Harrison started playing high school football his junior year, and decided that he would like to play this year as well. Harrison’s favorite football memory was beating South Charleston, was a great victory for the Vikings. The Vikings haven’t beaten South Charleston in over ten years, until last year.
“It has always been a tough game,” says Harrison.
He would like to continue playing football while attending college, although his school is undecided he is thinking about majoring in nutrition. As we all know, we have all new coaching staff.
“Playing with a new coach is definitely different, but it’s a good change,” said Harrison. “Coach Parsons does a great job with the wide receivers, helping us improve every day.”
Not only is Harrison a member of the Varsity Football team, but Harrison is also a member of the Ripley Varsity Basketball team, where he has been playing since he was five years old.
Harrison will surely have a great final football season, and will help the varsity football team to many victories.
