From the sidelines: TBHS senior Joey Gartland has become a leader on our team. He leads by example. He takes the plays off at practice and on game days. He plays with a joy and love for the game. He leads the Titans team in tackles, sacks and tackles for loss. If any team had players like Joey, they would be a tough out for anyone.
