Senior Statement #3: Hans Miller
There’s one thing I will always remember when thinking about how Hans plays: his smile. I’ve never had another player look like they were having so much fun on the tennis courts. And of course, that works beautifully in doubles, where Hans has played for the past three seasons on varsity.
And maybe because he’s laughing and having a good time, people don’t seem to realize how historically good Hans has been. With 2 wins in these last 11 matches, he’ll have the most varsity doubles wins of all-time. Right now, he’s already in 6th place in varsity wins regardless of doubles or singles. His winning percentage is nearly 75%!
But it is the joy that he brings to everything he does that truly makes him special. It makes others want to be with him. It makes him an easy doubles partner. It relaxes our team and helps us play our best. Even in our darkest moments, joy can produce hope. I also appreciate Hans earnest ability to listen. He is always ready to believe that things can get better. On his sightline biography, he mentioned that tennis has been like his second family. It is the qualities like his joy and earnestness that make us feel that way.
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
