Rettig added, “I was able to pull things from them, and them accepting me in the huddle. You learn a lot from your peers and the guys who are ahead of you. I’ve been very fortunate to have the class ahead of me. They’ve all helped me achieve some of the things I’ve done. I’ve just learned from them.”
It won’t be the home finale they had hoped for, and they don’t have a postseason to look forward to, but in a season as difficult as this, the seniors’ final game at Alumni will be meaningful.
“It’s going to be a real emotional day Saturday,” Pantale said. “It’s going to be excitement, a little sadness, all that stuff. I think a lot of emotions are going to be running through my head. It’s just scary to reflect back on the amount of time I’ve spent here and how fast it went by. I think Saturday it would be a lot more enjoyable if we got a win, leave Alumni with a good taste in our mouths.”
