Fall Exposure League Session 1 has ended. On Saturday, we are heading into Session 2 . First, I would like to give a special shout out to the middle school players that participated in Session 1. It wasn’t easy for the middle schoolers to come into a high school environment to play. I want to commend all of them for taking that challenge to compete and learn from the older players. I also want to thank the older players for welcoming in the younger players and mentoring them through the league.
