    • I have a lot of great memories of Ferris from when I was a student and now being on staff its hard to narrow it down. However, my most fond memories come from being able to be a part of some pretty special football teams here at Ferris. Whether it be from practices, games or to winning state in 2010, some of my most cherished moments comes from being apart of those teams with some of my closest friends.
