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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
