WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — When Avery Boaz took over as the West Lafayette Junior High head golf coach, the class of 2020 was in eighth grade. Boaz took over as the high school's head varsity coach the following year. Boaz has spent the last five years with the five seniors who missed out on their final year of high school golf.

Benny Zhang was on varsity all four of his years at West Side. He will continue his academic career at Northwestern and study biology and will pursue a pre-medical degree.

Collin Johnson played a big role on the varsity roster for three years. Johnson will stay in town to attend Purdue in the fall.

Noah Theobald also a four year varsity player. He plans to attend Indiana Univesity.

Tucker Bogue was also on the varsity roster. Bogue is still undecided on his future.

Dawson Driggs pulled double duty during his time at West Side. Driggs pitched on the baseball team, and was also a varsity golfer. Driggs will attend Indiana with Theobald in the fall.

These seniors' impact, according to Boaz, will last a lot more than their four years on the roster.

"The legacy that they are leave behind is a program that is in a better spot than when they got here," said Boaz.

"I think the memories and the pictures and just all the stuff that these guys leave behind, in high school sports you can always tell you've left a legacy when the younger guys are telling stories about you for years to come."

"There will be stories told about these seniors for years to come."
