We're celebrating athletes whose senior seasons have abruptly ended.

WXYZ Senior Salutes: We are asking for your senior year sports stories for our Brad Galli and Justin Rose to highlight on TV.

Dearborn Heights Crestwood baseball captain David LaBenne has been on the varsity team throughout his high school career. He's been a captain two seasons.

David has plans for life after graduation. His family told us he has been very involved in wood and metal working, as well as construction classes. David has earned "many state and county honors for his table-making."

"This fall, David plans on attending Local 58 electrician apprenticeship to become an journeyman electrician," Lia LaBenne told us.

David, you may not get to play baseball again, but we certainly salute you!

Kudos to ESPN's Scott Van Pelt for leading the way in calling for these stories. Our producer Megan Garagiola thought we could showcase some in metro Detroit to share on our platforms.
