Senior Year Rookies

The majority of high school athletes were introduced to their sports years before they joined the team through club or recreational programs. In other cases, players pick up a sport during their freshman or sophomore years and work to quickly build their skills to compete at a higher level.

These senior “rookies” bring both a veteran and newbie presence to teams, and can contribute to the squads in unique ways.
