EYEWITNESS ONLINE WEBCAST VIDEO


Student: Chris Vance
School: George Washington High School
Primary Sport: Football

He's played in the seasons of '06, '07 and '08, Chris Vance could easily have competed years ago.

"He's your old type football player. He's hard-nosed; he's old school. He's your fullback/linebacker type," said George Washington head football coach Steve Edwards, Jr. "He really loves the game of football. He's been a three-year starter for us. He'll do anything you want him to do."

GW made it to the second round of the playoffs a year ago this season. The mission is to go the distance and play for a title.

"We still have a lot to do. We have to prove ourselves."
