As the Lewis-Palmer High School Men’s Baseball team angles for a spot in the 4A playoffs, one of the team’s standout pitchers earned a spotlight as Athlete of the Week by KOAA News5 Sports.
Max Randis, a senior, told KOAA he’s playing every game like it’s his last when interviewed for the spotlight segment. Max’s father Chad passed away after a prolonged battle with COVID-19, and that tragedy is fueling Max as he mounts the mound through the season.
“There are countless memories, every single one of them, even the ones when I was young,” explained Randis. “Just playing tee-ball and he was there for every single game. I do not think he missed a single one.”
