Botanic Garden’s summer sounds welcome season in Glencoe

Christine Adams

Freelance Reporter

No one was wearing

blue suede shoes, but there

was a whole lotta shaking

goin’ on last Thursday,

June 6, when Rosie and

the Rivets kicked off Chicago

Botanic Garden’s Hot

Summer Nights concert


The band played classics

from the 1950s and

’60s like “Jailhouse Rock”

and “Be-Bop-A-Lula” in

McGinley Pavilion while

guests listened, picnicked

and danced.

Alexandria Seay, of

Prospect Heights, and Bryant

Maxwell, of Westmont,

stumbled upon the concert

after spending an early

evening at the garden.

“I was surprised there

was dancing, but everyone

started participating right

away,” said Maxwell, who

was impressed with the

high-energy crowd.

“It’s a fun event for the

family, or just a night out,”

Seay added.

Hot Summer Nights will

continue every Thursday

through Labor Day with

music that is “upbeat and

meant to get you on your

feet,” said Jodi Zombolo,

associate vice president

of visitor events and programs.

The Thursday Hot Summer

Nights concerts are

just one of the garden’s

summer concert series that

will be held four times a

week, Monday through

Thursday, through Labor


Mondays feature the

CBG’s own bell tower in

Carillon Concerts, and

Tuesdays offer the relaxing

“Music on the Esplanade,”

in which visitors

can sit back and listen

while overlooking the lagoon.

On Wednesdays,

the kid-focused Dancin’

Sprouts concerts get the

whole family moving, followed

by Thursday’s Hot

Summer Nights.

The summer evening

concert series is “a very

popular program for all

visitors,” Zombolo said.

It first began around 2005,

though additions and

changes have been made

along the way to bring it to

its current state.

“It is the only time that

we allow picnicking on our

grounds,” she added, explaining

that the practice is

normally forbidden in order

to protect the land, but

concert-goers are able to

bring blankets and chairs

to dine upon, whether with

food brought from home

or purchased from the

Garden Grill, which stays

open to accommodate

guests. The gardens also

stay open until 9 p.m., and

if visitors aren’t inclined

to sit still while listening

to music, they can stroll

through the grounds.

On Thursday, some

concert-goers arrived with

chairs and elaborate table

set-ups, while others simply

brought a blanket and a

box of pizza. Most focused

on the band and the jitterbugging

dancers, though a

few let the music fade into

the background while they

took in the view of weeping

willows across the

lagoon, especially illuminated

by the setting sun.

Silvia Seitan, of Morton

Grove, has been coming

to all the summer evening

concerts for years, but

holds a special place in her

heart for attending the Hot

Summer Nights concerts

with girlfriends.

“This is our favorite. We

come all summer until it

closes,” Seitan said. “We

can dance and get some

fresh air.”

“We like the music and

the outdoors,” added her

friend, Diana Lazar, of Des


While the concerts are

all scheduled for outdoors,

inclement weather may

move some shows inside.

Concerts are free and run

Monday-Thursday each

week from 6-8 p.m., except

for Dancin’ Sprouts

from 5:30-7:30 p.m.

Rosie and the Rivets was the first band to perform at Chicago Botanic Garden’s Hot

Glencoe D35 Board of Education

Tentative FY2020 budget gets approved

Todd Marver

Freelance Reporter

With the current school

year wrapping up, the

Glencoe School District 35

Board is directing its attention

to the fiscal year 2020


The board approved

the tentative budget at its

Thursday, June 6 meeting.

The tentative budget is

available for public viewing

in the district office

and on the district website The

final budget is scheduled

for approval at the board’s

Sept. 5 meeting.

“The tentative budget

we continue to refine until

the final budget is brought

to the board in September,”

director of finance

and operations Jason Edelheit

said. “There are generally

some changes and fine

tuning just because of the

duration of time and we’ll

have more information

in September than we do


Total operating revenues

are budgeted at $28.32 million

and total operating expenditures

are budgeted at

$28.03 million. Operating

revenues are expected to

decline just over 5 percent

from the prior fiscal year

due to transfer revenue

reflected in the operations

and maintenance fund last

year that is not included in

fiscal year 2020.

Operating expenditures

are budgeted to decline

just over 25 percent due to

transfer revenue recorded

in fiscal year 2019 that is

not budgeted in fiscal year


“The budget does include

funding of capital projects,

but there’s no money being

transferred to the capital

projects fund,” Edelheit

said. “That was done in the

current fiscal year.”

“In September, we’ll

have a budget hearing and

open it up to the board and

public for questions and

I’ll be bringing the final

budget to the board for approval,”

Edelheit said.

A public hearing on the

final budget will be held at

the board’s Sept. 5 meeting

prior to the board approving

the final budget

later in the meeting.

by Superintendent

Ray Lechner and Wilmette

Police Chief Kyle


WPD’s followup press

release also said that a

student’s name appeared

as the signer of the bomb

threat. It is unclear at this

time if the name was that

of the student who actually

wrote the threat.

According to Wilmette

police, the student who

found the message “properly”

reported it to WJHS

administrators, and police

were called at approximately

11:41 a.m. The

initial police investigation

did not indicate a credible

threat, but “out of an

abundance of caution,” a

precautionary dog search

of the building was conducted,

police said.

“We are pleased to report

that the search confirmed

there is no danger

at WJHS,” the emails

state. “While the followup

investigation is ongoing,

we are confident the

school is safe.”

Reportedly, no suspicious

items were found.

The email to the community

sent out Wednesday —

and obtained by The Beacon

— did not include any

mention of anti-Semitic

language and graffiti.

There has been a

colorful burst of

cheer in our town

lately. It has been peeking

out on Vernon Avenue. It

has been defying gravity

and retail awnings. It’s

been taking over social

media. I’m talking about

the delightfully cheerful

balloon installation honoring

Pride Month at The

Flower Shop.

With rainbow colors

and whimsy that just

keeps going, I have

marveled at this art for

many days now. Created

by Balloons by Tommy

and orchestrated by store

owner Brooke Lawler, this

symbol of inclusion takes

a joyful form in commemorating

June and what it

represents to the LGBTQ+

community: unity, empowerment,


The Flower Shop isn’t

alone either — take a look

around and see many businesses,

shops and restaurants

in our area who

are taking on inclusive

practices and promoting

acceptance this month.

All of this reminds me of

a Welcoming and Inclusivity

Pledge that the Village of

Glencoe rolled out in 2017.

Said pledge promoted the

notion that “a community

must stand up against any

and all discrimination,

harassment or hateful acts

that are based on race, ethnicity,

color, immigration

Shop in downtown Glencoe in honor of Pride Month.

or refugee status, religion

or creed, gender or sexual

orientation, age, mental or

physical disability, veteran

status, or other social identities,

as well as discourse

that disrespects or degrades

people’s identities, needs

and beliefs.”

I’m really empowered

by this pledge. It keeps

our community accountable

to being our best, and

serves as a reminder that

we are all different, we are

all the same. More information

on the Pledge can

be found on the Village of

Glencoe’s website.

In expanding the

Pledge, the concept of

inclusion, and its many

subcategories, Glencoe

Public Library will be

Faith Panel Discussion at

I always find it enlightening

— the differing ideas and

opinions can stir the brain

and the heart mutually.

Plus, the library is the place

From the Editor

Introducing our new comic corner

Megan Bernard

Something may have

caught your eye

this week when you

flipped to this page — our

new Comic Corner!

For the first time ever,

The Glencoe Anchor has a

comic. How cool is that?

The idea was pitched to

me by Glencoe resident

Erin Pockross, whose

third-grade son, Lennon, is

a big comic fan and aspires

to be a cartoonist.

Erin wrote to me telling

me that Lennon asked one

day if The Anchor had a

comic section.

“So, here I am writing

to you with a request

of having a community

comic submission section

in The Anchor. Not just

old school Peanuts (which

both my boys would love)

but kids across the community

creating comics

and submitting them for

the paper. I know Lennon

would love to submit

something and see his

work in print.”

I love their idea and

enjoy hearing what residents

want to see and get

out of their community

paper, The Anchor. Plus,

I always thought we were

missing a comic strip! So,

Lennon’s wish came true

today as his first comic

graces our newspaper.

I’m looking to feature

one per month throughout

the summertime. If you

have a cartoonist on your

hands and you’re interested,

please let me know

at megan@glencoeanchor.


But more about our

first-ever cartoonist. Lennon

attends West School

and loves making comics

and playing hockey and

video games. He wants to

be a cartoonist when he

grows up. Let’s give Lennon

a warm welcome!

Glencoe Historical Society posted this photo

June 6 with the caption: “The annual 2nd

grade Cultural Arts tour of Glencoe was a hit!

The morning included a walking tour of downtown,

a visit to the Glencoe Historical Society,

and a tour of a Frank Lloyd Wright home and

the Charles Henry Howard Victorian home.”

Like The Glencoe Anchor:

an ever-evolving topic. Each day we learn

new terms, new groups or come to new

understandings of what it means to identify

or express oneself. But when I think

of inclusion, I think of all of us being on

the same journey together. We’re walking,

we’re going somewhere, we’re just at different

paces. And it’s a beautiful thing.

Glencoe woman behind Shookies Cookies business

Megan Bernard, Editor

Sheri Handelman is always on

dessert duty. No questions asked.

Whenever the Glencoe resident

attends a family gathering,

“everyone says I have to bring

my cookies,” she said.

Handelman’s cookies, however,

aren’t run-of-the-mill — and

people are noticing.

“I stumbled upon a chocolate

chip recipe and tweaked it,” said

Handelman, who grew up in

Michigan baking with her mom.

“I’ve added a few more ingredients

and a little extra flour. I use

a scooper, then mold and bake

them a certain way to keep the

center doughy.”

Once the timer goes off, out

comes a soft, gooey cookie that

resembles a scoop of ice cream.

After years of delighted consumers,

Handelman’s husband

asked her if she could prepare

enough cookies to send them to

his clients for Christmas. The

result was 600 cookies and the

start of a new business called

Shookies Cookies (The “sh” in

Shookies comes from Handelman’s


Officially born two years ago,

Shookies Cookies has hit its

stride in town. Currently, the

unique cookies are sold online

and locally at Hometown Coffee

and Juice in downtown Glencoe.

At Hometown, you can find

a variety of rotating Shookie

flavors, including funfetti,

chocolate chip, M&M, s’mores,

peanut butter cup and snickernoodle.

It’s hard to miss these

in the display case — they catch

customers eyes, as they’ve never

seen anything like it. But neither

has Handelman.

“I’m always the girl who is

going to find the perfect cookie

throughout my day. I’m a sweet

eater. My husband is a very

healthy eater but at the end of

each dinner, I’m like, ‘So, where

are we getting dessert?’” she

said. “I mean, I’ve tried a lot, a

lot of cookies and my chocolate

chip cookie is my favorite.”

Each Shookie is handmade and

baked in a commercial kitchen in

Highland Park.

“Each Shookie isn’t a perfect

circle or cookie,” Handelman

said. “It’s not the type of cookie

that you could just drop out by

a machine. ... I’ve thrown out I

can’t tell you how many cookies

that are too underdone or overdone.

I’m a perfectionist so I

want them to be perfect.”

Handelman also bakes Nutella,

cookies ’n’ cream, and salted

caramel flavors, among others.

The latter two, she added, will

hit her website soon.

Orders made on Handelman’s

website are mostly shipped to

colleges across the United States.

Her following consists of sororities

and college parents looking

to send a care package.

To fulfill orders, Handelman

is baking 300 cookies per week

on average during three visits to

the commercial kitchen. She has

help from one baker on Sundays.

“It’s only me — I do work

with some party planners — but

honestly I have a capacity issue.

I could only bake so many cookies,”

she said, laughing.

Looking forward, Handelman

said another Shookie Cookies

retail location at a coffee shop

is in the works, but she couldn’t

disclose more information.

In the meantime, satisfy your

sweet tooth by ordering Shookies

at www.shookiescookies.

com and Hometown Cafe. Custom

orders and local orders can

be placed by emailing

Mercado’s slow, rustic cooking speeds

up attraction to new restaurant

Jason Addy

Contributing Editor

After decades in the Chicago

restaurant industry,

Richard Vallejo and chef

Yanni Sanchez teamed up

to launch Mercado Cocina

and Cantina in Glenview,

and it has been an instant

hit for the community.

Vallejo, co-owner and

operator of Mercado, said

he and Sanchez were looking

for a place in the North

Shore to start their own

modern Mexican restaurant

and considered locations in

Wilmette and Evanston before

landing at 2300 Lehigh


Having opened at the end

of April, Vallejo said he

“couldn’t be happier” with

the reception from the community

in the restaurant’s

first weeks.

“It seems like Glenview’s

been pretty thirsty

for something like this.

We’re getting great feedback.

... They’re happy

we’re here,” Vallejo said,

describing the restaurant’s

“chef-driven” concept as

a showcase of traditional

Mexican and global ingredients

that Sanchez fuses

using old-fashioned, rustic

Mexican and French cooking


Sanchez and her team

at Mercado make all their

dishes using the freshest ingredients

possible, and everything

is made in-house,

including the salt mixes and

juices for the restaurant’s

margaritas, Vallejo said.

Sanchez also utilizes

rustic cooking techniques

that may take longer but

are worth the extra time,

Vallejo said.

“You can taste the depth

of flavor when you kind of

slow things down and do

them the right way. It really

Mercado Cocina and Cantina’s Fabianita’s flautas ($10),

which features crispy chipotle-potato filled spring rolls,

salsa verde, basil, mint, romaine, queso fresco and

creme fraiche, is quickly becoming a fan-favorite dish

at the new Glenview restaurant. Martin Carlino/22nd

Century Media

develops the flavor and enhances

the items,” Vallejo


The inspiration behind

Mercado — “market” in

Spanish — comes from the

fresh ingredients and beautiful

colors often found in

markets throughout cities

across the world, Sanchez


“When you want to know

about cultures, you go to

the markets,” Sanchez said.

“Market is my muse. Market

is my inspiration.”

While Mercado offers

traditional Mexican

staples like tacos, burritos

and enchiladas, Vallejo

and Sanchez are proud to

be introducing local diners

to lesser-known regional

Mexican cuisines and

cooking techniques.

Vallejo highlighted Mercado’s

“Fabianita’s flautas,”

which are made with

chipotle-flavored potatoes

wrapped in a spring roll

wrapper and served on a

lettuce leaf. Flautas are

usually filled with meat

and cheese then wrapped

in a tortilla, but Sanchez is

recreating a technique she

learned when she was a

young girl in Toluca, Mexi-

co, according to Vallejo.

“That’s kind of the beauty

of this menu, how the

dishes evolved into what

they are. … Items that are

reminiscent to our chef’s

upbringing and dear to

her,” Vallejo said.

A group of 22nd Century

Media editors stopped

by Mercado to check out

Glenview’s newest restaurant

and sample some of

the items on the menu.

We started with several

drinks, including Mercado’s

classic margarita

and guava margarita. The

classic, “clean, refreshing”

margarita is the restaurant’s

top seller, but the guava

isn’t far behind, Vallejo

Boys Volleyball Player of the Year

Howard’s newfound confidence leads to success

Michael Wojtychiw

Sports Editor

Loyola has had a number

of successful outside hitters

in its boys volleyball history.

David Wieczorek and

Adam Toren are both top

15 all-time in career kills in

the state of Illinois.

Well they’re joined now

by recent Loyola graduate

Jack Howard, who

had more than 400 kills

this season en route to his

fourth all-conference honor

and finished his career with

1,154 career kills, which

places his 14th all-time in

Illinois. For his great season,

Howard was named

22nd Century Media’s

Player of the Year.

Joining a list that includes

college All-Americans

and former Olympians

is something that Howard

isn’t taking lightly.

“It’s a great feeling seeing

it on there but it’s just

indicative that I still have a

lot of work to go,” Howard

said. “If I’m going to end up

as collegiately successful

as these players, they were

great high school players,

but that’s got to translate on

to the next level.”

Howard made the varsity

squad as a freshman, but

for someone who ended up

being successful, it wasn’t

always that way.

In fact, it was quite the


“I walked on the courts

absolutely petrified. I was

so scared as a freshman, I

basically didn’t talk for the

whole first month,” he said.

“I actually got the team in

trouble a couple of times

because I didn’t communicate.

So it was over the

course of really getting into

the gameplay because we

have those three weeks at

the beginning of the season

just with our team practicing

all the time.

“Once we really started

to loosen up and I was

pretty solidly on the starting

lineup, and I was able

to actually connect with

them in game time situations,

that’s when I started

to open up and get over this

massive fear.”

This past season, Howard

helped lead Loyola to

the top seed in its sectional,

as well as a second consecutive

trip to the sectional

final, a place the Ramblers

hadn’t been in a number of

years, especially after having

fallen in the regional

finals his first two years.

Howard missed a good

portion of the beginning of

his junior season with an

injury, but returned in a big

way, helping the team end

on a successful note.

Even with the success

the Ramblers had last year,

this year was up in the air,

as they lost a good number

of players from last year’s

squad, namely their middle


“Something that I will

take away from this is after

our first actual practice

walking up the stairs, because

we have to shag on

the balcony, and walking

up the stairs with the other

captains and all of us sort

of turning to each other

and saying ‘I have no idea

what this year’s going to

look like. I am confused

out of my mind whether

we will be good, whether

we’ll be terrible,’” he


“It ended up well and I’m

proud of what we’ve done.”

Next season, Howard

will be playing at Penn

State University.

New Trier coach Sue Ellen Haak is the Boys Volleyball


Every season, every year,

every team is different. The

players, the formations,

maybe even the plays. But

for New Trier boys volleyball,

the one thing that’s

stayed the same is the

coaching staff and its coaching


“I think our coaching

style as far as our executions

for how kids act in

our program and how they

work and their level of

commitment, that never

changes,” Trevians coach

Sue Ellen Haak said. “The

way we treat our players,

we have kind of a calm,

confident instructional

style. They know what to

expect from us emotionally

and I don’t think they’re

surprised by us and that

helps create a good learning

environment. So that

stuff never changes.”

The consistency is what

helped the Trevians win

their sixth consecutive sectional

this year and is what

also helped Haak earn

22nd Century Media’s

Boys Volleyball Coach of

This season started off

a little rocky for the Trevians

in that many of their

matches went three sets.

New Trier alumnus Brecht ready for pro ball

Michael Wojtychiw

Sports Editor

New Trier alum Ben

Brecht saw his childhood

dream come true June 4,

when the Tampa Bay Rays

selected the University of

California-Santa Barbara

left-handed pitcher in the

fifth round of the Major

League Baseball Draft.

“I have believed it since I

was six years old. Seriously,”

Brecht said about when

he started to think he could

get drafted.

The Wilmette native

knew he’d be drafted anywhere

between the third

and eighth rounds, but

it was the waiting game

that really made it hard on

Brecht, not knowing when

the exact moment would


“It was quite stressful

honestly, we watched a

lot of picks knowing that

I could be coming up and

then my phone just started

blowing up before the draft

ticker was even updated,”

he said. “So I kind of knew.

I saw it pop up and it was

very cool.”

After a very successful

high school career, Brecht

went to California with

big expectations, hoping to

make an immediate impact

with the Gauchos.

It didn’t come right away


After being a mid-week

starter for the Gauchos his

freshman year, his sophomore

year didn’t really go

as he had planned. In more

than 12 fewer innings, he

saw a number of stats rise,

including his ERA by over

a run.

His junior year was different


“I came in this year with

a much better mindset, I

worked a lot harder than I

ever have in my life, which,

not only as a player but

a person,” he said. “I’ve

always hung my hat on

my command. I’m a big

guy, and I can throw a lot

of strikes. In high school,

I was just getting it done

because I could put it past

people and then I got to

college and my velocity

was down a little bit. So, I

was still throwing a ton of

strikes but I wasn’t throwing

as hard so I had to really

learn how to pitch. That

was really beneficial for me

because I learned how to

get people out without just

overpowering them.

“The biggest difference

between last year and this

year is one, confidence,

and just trusting myself.

And two, by putting all that

work in. I picked up three

or four miles an hour velocity

from last year which

generates a lot more swing

and misses.”

All that work paid off

as Brecht was named the

team’s Friday night starter,

which is usually considered

the day the team’s top

started pitches, the week of

UCSB’s opening game.

What followed is what

he had been hoping for his

entire collegiate career.

He finished the season

10-2 in 16 starts with 101

strikeouts and only 18

walks. He had double-digit

strikeouts in two games,

including a season-high 11

against Tulane March 8.

Brecht isn’t the only one

who had a successful season

though. The Gauchos

finished the season with

a 45-11 record, winning

their first outright conference

title since 1986 and

rising to as high as No. 4

in the national polls.

Their season ended early,

however, as they lost

their first two games in

the NCAA Tournament,

getting knocked out in the

regional round of the tournament.

“The guys in leadership

roles, specifically

me, Chris (Lincoln), Jack

(Dashwood), Eric Yang,

cultivated a very different

culture than in the past,” he

said. “That bled into everything

that we do. Specifically,

it’s the leaders who

are going to set the tone

and everyone else is going

to follow.

“In the past two years,

there was a lot more of...

less cooperation. If you

mess up we’re just going

to [blame] you type culture.

This year it’s a lot

more like ‘we’re going to

be your friends and show

you how to do things right

as opposed to wait for you

to mess things up and then

punish you for it.’”

After finishing finals this

week, Brecht plans to sign

with the Rays and get to

Tampa Bay to sign and then

head off to short-season

ball, where he’ll spend time

getting some innings in, as

well as adjusting to professional

baseball life.

Brecht is excited to play

in the Rays organization

because as he says “there’s

no better organization that

develops tall pitchers.”

He’s happy with how his

career ended up and with

the fact he went to play

college baseball instead of

signing with the Baltimore

Orioles out of high school.

“There was a chance

I’d get signed out of high

school but I think it was

in my best interest to go

to college and really, every

moment that I’ve been

here I’ve been, grateful

that I made that decision,”

he said. “I don’t think I

would have thrived in pro

ball out of high school. I

don’t think I was mature

enough physically or mentally

to handle that. Now

I feel like it’s the perfect

time for me.

“I’ve got three years under

my belt, I’ve learned to

become a completely different

person than I was

three years ago. Excited

about professional ball.”

New Trier grad Rosenthal earns scholarship at Michigan State

Michael Wojtychiw, Sports Editor

For many high school athletes, a

goal of theirs to continue playing

at the collegiate level. Whether

that be NCAA Division I, II, III

or NAIA, the opportunity to play

at the next level is something the

players strive for.

New Trier alumnus Max Rosenthal

is one of those lucky ones that

got the opportunity to play at the

Division I level, when he decided

to walk on at Michigan State University

as a fullback in 2017.

“Michigan State started recruiting

me after my junior football

season, originally as a linebacker,”

Rosenthal said. “And then as time

went on they were in more need

of a fullback. I had offers from

Bowling Green, Air Force, and

Fordham. But I loved Michigan

State from my first visit. I thought

the coaches were first-class, great

family atmosphere, just doing everything

by the book, everything

the right way.

“Michigan State football is

something I’ve always followed

and appreciated throughout high

school. So to be able to become a

Spartan was a dream come true.”

Even more of a dream came

true after the Spartans’ last day

on spring practice when Michigan

State coach Mark Dantonio

awarded the Winnetka resident

with a scholarship.

“It was a Thursday after our

last practice, and Coach Dantonio

was making some announcements

for the team,” Rosenthal said. “It

was like this Game of Thrones

theme and it was these three kind

of scrolls and each one was to deliver

to a guy on scholarship. So

my roommate Blake Bueter came

up and he announced my name as

the first one. So that’s how they

did the announcement.

“The reaction it was just kind

of... it was probably one of the

most accomplished feelings I’ve

ever felt. Just all the hard work that

paid off, all the people that helped

me along the way to get me to this

point. So it was pretty surreal but

very happy and I made my phone

call home. Both my parents were

excited, crying on the other line.

So it was an awesome moment.”

While some walk-ons are blindsided

by the scholarships they

end up receiving, Rosenthal had a

feeling one might be coming just

based on the amount of playing

time he had received during his

redshirt freshman season this past


Rosenthal earned his first start

on Sept. 29 when the Spartans

hosted Central Michigan University

in East Lansing, Mich. As

the season progressed, he saw

more playing time and became the

team’s primary fullback as time

went along.

While the statistics show that

Rosenthal finished the year with

zero rushing yards, he did score

a touchdown against Maryland

when he dove on a loose ball in

the end zone.

Even though he was coming

from New Trier and consistently

playing some of the best competition

in the state, the transition to

the college game wasn’t an easy


“When I first came in during

my first fall camp as a freshman,

it was sort of a reality check about

the size and the speed at the next

level, especially at Michigan State

at a Big 10 level,” he said. “So that

redshirt year was kind of where I

was observing what it took to

make your way on the field or

make my way on the field, and really

honed in on it.

“I think it’s very difficult coming

from a senior captain on your

football team and then coming

into Michigan State as a redshirt

freshman sort of back to the bottom.

So I felt, this is the time I

have to... it’s kind of I have to

prove myself again. Start from

the bottom and work my way up,

whether that’s of course physically,

on the field, off the field, in

the classroom, whatever it took to

kind of start making a name for


The advertising management

major will be looking to keep

proving that his hard work is paying

off and that the coaches were

right to reward him with a scholarship

and knows there are still some

things he can improve on, including

things like route running, pass

blocking and becoming more of a

leader on and off the field.

The college football world

will see how much his hard work

throughout the year, as well as

during the summer, has paid off,

when the Spartans host Tulsa on

Aug. 30 in East Lansing.
