2020-2021 Senior Speeches

Jack Itzinger

Overall, I have been able to appreciate life more because I have learned it can always be worse. It’s easy to take things for granted but as we all know from COVID 19, you never know how good you have it until something changes. So, as difficult as it may be, try to look for the silver lining in each situation.

And Tomorrow is a mystery. We don’t know what will happen. This world and this life doesn’t offer any absolutes. Nothing is set in stone. We could have days like yesterday, or we could have days that are completely different from it. We’ll never know.

Now, I finally feel like I have a voice and a sense of belonging. I’m able to make friends much more easily, and I don’t feel embarrassed or scared to ask for help from my teachers anymore.

That change started with me, but it was the support of my teachers and my friends that encouraged me to keep pushing forward.

One thing I have learned as a basketball player is “get comfortable being uncomfortable”. Throughout this year, we have learned to adapt to being comfortable despite all the circumstances going on in our world. This quote goes to show that we will be prepared to handle anything life throws at us.

All sports prepare you for life, but baseball does it the most for me because baseball is a game of failure. Many coaches and players say that this game will keep you humble because a lot of players will fail seven out of ten times but if you can do that a majority of your career, you’ll be really good. The game teaches you how to handle failure and overcome adversity.

My interests have kept changing over the years and I have learned so much, but the greatest thing I learned in high school was that it’s important to try out new adventures. If you stay in your comfort zone and don’t try new challenges, how will you grow?
