A Quick Word About Ellis 
“While we hope that each student-athlete commits to returning from significant injury a sturdier, healthier, stronger version than before, Ellis took this opportunity to emerge a better person. He set and achieved goals for every aspect of his life. He committed to ensuring that his entire body of work was a representation of his best self. Ellis focused on the discipline required to submit his best academically, growing into a more diligent and conscientious student. I will not tell you that every day was easy. However, without hesitation, I will tell you that his persistence and focus allowed him to dig deep and do the tedious and often overlooked work to accomplish all he had set out to achieve.” ~ Mrs. Antoinette Bailey, Ellis’ Athletic Trainer 

The thing that most makes me a Bulldog is…my willingness to know more.
