“Going through teenage years there’s a lot of temptation coming through my way, I’m just praying to the Lord to give me willpower and to give me discipline and the strength to achieve my goal.”

The final year student says leading a team is not easy but they hope to end the season well.

Gospel Saints went down to Nasinu Panthers 36-6 in the second round over the weekend.
