Editor's note: In honor of the start of the Grayslake North High School football season, I stopped by a recent varsity football practice to interview some players who volunteered. I'll be featuring these profiles over the next several days. Be sure to check out the team's schedule for this season.
Name: Spencer Davis

3. What do you love about playing football? I was raised on football. I've played since kindergarten. On Fridays, I love lining up and getting ready to go on the field and hearing the cheers.
