At the conclusion at each and every school year, the Silver Lake High varsity sports teams lose a number of talented athletes to graduation and as a result, they need younger players to step up and fill the voids.
Even though the star senior athletes careers at Silver Lake are over, a handful of them end up using their athletic ability at the next level, playing a college sport.
