As the school year comes to an end, many special senior events were planned for the Class of 2020. Exciting events and activities such as riding scooters, senior chapel and screaming Psalm 24 are some of the special events that every graduating class before was able to experience. Spring of senior year is supposed to be a time for seniors to reminisce on their high school years and look forward to their upcoming transition to college. When the beginning of the school year started in August, many last events were occurring for the seniors, and no one predicted the last events would come so soon for all of the seniors. While distance learning is still going on, the last day on campus was March 12 for all Wesleyan students. With the closure of school for the remainder of the school year, the entire Wesleyan community is affected, but this pandemic is especially affecting the class of 2020. Keep Reading

As the fall season rolls around, and football season begins ramping up, people are getting excited for their Fantasy Football League by picking out their team name and thinking about who they want to draft. There are tons of Fantasy Football Leagues around the country, and there are also many leagues in the Wesleyan Community. Junior Bryce Masters, senior Carter Davis and Wesleyan parent Stephanie Powell are all part of a Fantasy Football League this year.
Junior Bryce Masters and his friends, Luke Carroll, Tanner Bivins, Matthew Morse, Hayden Morehouse, Beau Brown, Braden DeBow, Wyatt Hodges and JD Chipman are all part of a Fantasy Football League together this year. They have been preparing for this time of year to come and were eagerly ready to make their draft picks for this year’s league. For the drafting, they met up at Beau Brown’s house. Masters is projected to win the league so far, and some other dominant players in league are juniors Harrison Gracey and Beau Brown, but the season is not over quite yet. When asked if he thinks Fantasy Football is luck or talent, Masters said, “Mostly talent, with a little bit of luck involved. An important key is doing research before-hand and doing a few mock drafts.” When the time comes, the winner will get $135, second place $45 and third place $20. But now, what about the loser?

Fantasy Football is one of Masters’ favorite past times in the fall, and he said his favorite parts about it are, “Watching NFL football, and it is also a fun little competition.” Keep Reading
