  1. Kaylon, your spirit and determination to bring home a state trophy for BHS is why you were award the Toby Arthur Thomas Memorial Scholarship. You are on the team that can do it and your individual effort in the 400 and 200 is exceptional. Just one more thing, keep you mouth shut when running or you will get bugs on your teeth like a car on the highway at night. Good luck my friend and Semper Fidelis, (Always Faithful).
