We're celebrating students 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.

Troy Athens twin sisters Abby and Grace Bright were on the basketball and softball teams. ‬We met their brother Sam on WXYZ in 2014. He was the manager of the football team, and taught us about the program's unity. Sam became a manager for the University of Cincinnati's football team. He's now working full-time in Ohio, and his sisters are heading to Ohio State. What a family!‬

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.
