  • The living definition of...

    Mark Twain once said, “Always do right. This will gratify some people and astonish the rest.” The word conscientious means wishing to do what is right, especially to do one’s work or duty well and thoroughly. Senior Hawks football player Seth DeVary epitomizes the definition of conscientious, not only on the football field, but in the classroom as well.

    DeVary grew up involved in sports, but football has always been a huge part of his life.
