High Five-baseball season wraps up busy junior year

 

Northside High School junior Keifer Boyd played basketball, was the quarterback on the 1A state runner-up team and is the starting second baseman for the Panthers baseball team.

 

  1. Which sport would you play if you could only pick one?

 

Keifer: Football, because I started playing flag football when I was five. I watched my brothers throw it around in the backyard with my dad and I wanted to do it too.

 

  1. What is your favorite sports team?

 

Keifer: The Dallas Cowboys. I remember watching their games with my dad and brothers when I was nine or 10. My mom and grandparents are Redskins fans, so it’s fun when they play each other. I like watching Dak Prescott and Amari Cooper.

 

  1. What is your favorite part about playing sports?

 

Keifer: Hanging out and bonding with my teammates. We got along really well and liked being around each other this football season. I think that’s why we made it as far as we did. We knew we had good players and trusted each other.

 

  1. What was your favorite part of the state championship game?

 

Keifer: Soaking in the atmosphere of Carter-Finley Stadium. That whole week was fun. We had intense practices and I knew we were ready and not scared. Even though we lost, it showed us we can compete with anybody.

 

  1. What superpower would you pick?

 

Keifer: Speed, so I could get places faster. I like the Flash because he can do that. Any kind of speed upgrade would be nice.
