Hello, all, and welcome to Quick Hits, a new weekly story where I will be conducting a Q&A with a local athlete.
This is just meant to be a fun, relaxing story that gives us a chance to get to know some of the area athletes.
Our first edition is with Cael White, a senior at Waverly-Shell Rock who plays tight end and linebacker for the football team.

Cael White: Probably would be when I got my good friend Braden to come out for football with me.
WN: How far can you throw a football?
CW: I don’t know — I can throw it a long ways.
WN: What sports teams do you support?
CW: I’m a fan of LSU. We have some family that live down south.
