While Caiden Williams from Canton is getting ready for the beginning of his college football career at Lycoming, Dade Splain from Williamsport will be joining the National Guard in service to our country.

"It's just been a chance to prove myself and prove that I have been able to grow throughout the years and that I am just the best person that I can be right now," said Caiden.

"I am going down to Ft. Benning Georgia for basic training NAIT and then I am coming back up here to Pennsylvania. What made you want to be part of the National Guard? Just something that I have always wanted to do ever since I was a kid serve my country. Football translates into military because it teaches you to be part of a team. It teaches you to push yourself farther than you think that you can," said Dade.
