Finn Nicholson's journey is one that he wouldn't change.

The Second Baptist School senior spent the first three years of high school at newly opened Bridgeland High School prior to making a move.

It was at Second Baptist School where Nicholson '21 finished his prep career this past fall, passing for 1,353 yards and 21 touchdowns, leading the Eagles back to the state semifinals.

"It was a unique journey, but I'm glad it went the way it did," Nicholson said. "I wouldn't change a thing. I'm blessed to be able to attend Second Baptist School, and I'm so thankful they accepted me into their community."


Making a drastic change, such as moving high schools prior to your senior year, can be a lot for any kid to go through. New friends. New teammates. New coaches and teachers.

But Second Baptist School made that transition a smooth one for Nicholson.

"It was everything I ever hoped for," Nicholson said about how special it was playing for Second Baptist School. "I wanted an opportunity to play football at a high level my senior year, and Second Baptist gave me that and so much more. SBS is a great school with an amazing community, and I'm so blessed that I ended up being a part of it. My only wish is that I had been here all four years."
