Tavo: "I am a senior and I would like to give thanks to those people who have stuck by my side. I want to thank my mother, Anita Parral, and my siblings and cousins. Also, I want to thank those people here at Goshen College. Without you all, my academic and athletic career wouldn't have been successful. This is my senior year in basketball and I look forward to contributing in any role that I can for the team. I am a captain of the team and I look forward to leading the team in the right direction to help turn the program into a successful one. Thank you all and we look forward to your support."
