I'm almost afraid to comment on this article because of the "no names", but here goes. This young man epitomizes the best of what the Wayne Schools (and excellent parenting) can do. I'm sure his parents couldn't be prouder, and now his community can join them. Thanks for this positive article about a student athlete from Wayne Hills. I hope it gets so many hits that Patch has no choice but to write more articles about success stories in our community.
