ELMIRA, Ore. - As a senior forward for Elmira High School, Karson Laing and the Falcons are in contention for a 4A Sky-Em league title. Tuesday marked senior night for the Falcons, a highlight for the Laing family as Karson is coached by his father, Tommy.

“It’s just been a blessing, it’s been a lot of fun,” said Tommy Laing, Elmira Head Coach - and Karson’s father.

“What better way to spend time together than to be out here and have a great time?”

“It’s been a great ride, couldn’t ask for a better coach,” Karson echoes.

But as for the season ahead, the Falcons plan to make a postseason run.

However, the Laing’s make it clear, this year will be defined by more than the number in the win column at the season’s end.

“This is just…this is the best team I’ve been a part of,” Karson said. “Family. Great family, every game. Couldn’t ask for any better teammates.”
