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.

Hunter Richards found himself when he joined the cross country and track team at Yale High School as a freshman, and it became a major part of his life. From excelling in competition, to helping him realize the importance of his studies, missing out on his last chance to run with his friends is a disappointing end to an exponential personal growth over his time at Yale.

Hunter, we 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.
