All-Star Gatewood helps South punt away North

(Continued)

“It was really cool,” said Gatewood. “There were people taking pictures everywhere. It was crazy.”

He said the game itself also felt like a college game, with players from both teams committed to a college to play football.

“It was a great experience that I had, knowing that I’m going to play college baseball, and the last high school football game I had would just be the best of the best. It was something else.”

The left-handed pitcher described what it was like to play on the same field with other elite football players throughout the state.

“Coming from a little 1A school, playing with kids from 5A schools like Brownsburg, Fishers and Avon, was just a great experience, and something that I’ll never forget,” he said. “It felt good to put pads back on, that’s for sure. I’m glad I got to play and represent South Decatur. I was glad that I was able to play in the game.”

Gatewood said he would encourage up-and-coming football players to compete in an All-Star game if they were chosen.

“It somebody else had the chance to play in this game, and they asked me for advice, I would totally tell them to do it because it was totally worth it,” he said. “Just knowing they’re all seniors and you get to play one more game with the best of the best. I would do it again if I could. Everybody made some friends that I will never forget at this camp. Everybody was getting along great. It was just a great time overall. I’m glad I got chosen to be on the team and play in the game.”
