  • Crusader Basketball-Max Heinz

    I miss going into a battle with my teammates most. I miss the adversity that comes with competing and I miss the joy of winning and the feeling of bouncing back after a loss. I miss being a family with my teammates, and forming that bond with them.  Crusader Athletics are so great because they’ve always given me the ability to show what I have worked for my entire life. Every coach who has coached me has cared about me, not just a player but also an individual. I really think the coaches at Faith are amazing.

  • Crusader Basketball - Jackson Williams

    I miss competing day in and day out and playing with my teammates.  I miss competing every day to get a state championship.  I miss being in the locker room or traveling on the bus with all of them.  I love my teammates as they are like brothers to me.  I love the culture we have in FL basketball.  They are like my family, and my relationship with the coaches is more than a just player/coach relationship.

  • Crusader Basketball-Neriah Efferson

    I was always excited for game day and that I had something to look forward to when I got out of school.  I really missed the pre-game turn up. We would listen to music in the locker room as we got ready for the game and we would just let loose and have fun before going out on the floor and putting on our game faces.  The greatest part about Crusader Athletics is knowing that I had great coaches that were there for me no matter what, no matter the coach. We worked together as a family and I'm glad to have been a part of it.

  • Crusader Wrestling-Leo Mendoza

    The thing I miss most about competing is getting the opportunity to wrestle the best teams in the state. I also miss the bus rides when we travel out of state to compete. I miss playing with my teammates the most and all the jokes we tell each other,  and the amount of support whenever we make a great move on the mat. Also, the teamwork and unselfishness knowing that we have each other’s back through it all. We have a great program because not only do we compete to our greatest potential we also learn so much about the sport. The coaches have also taught us how wrestling will benefit us in the future, and most importantly how to be a good Christian role model.
