READY, WILLING, AND ABEL

We all grow up with that one friend who serves as a catalyst amongst the entire high school.  The one guy or gal that always has your back, and willing to crack a joke when it’s needed.  At the same time, that friend also serves as a rock to lean on when times get shaky.

Meet that friend: East Palestine’s Abel Figley.

On the football field, he possesses size, skill, and leadership.  Off the field, he is the center of attention and the guy who sets the trend for the brown and white.  You can find Abel always surrounded by a group of friends, and 99% of the time he’s got a smile on his face.

That other 1 percent, though?  Let’s just say he’s left a path of destruction in his wake that has served the Bulldogs well over the last 4 years.

YSN’s Tim Figley caught up in a bit of a family reunion for this week’s East Palestine Player Profile: READY, WILLING, AND ABEL.
