MHS Senior Xavier Oliver Shares Story of Resilience and Love for Football

Milton Hershey School senior Xavier Oliver recently shared his journey to MHS, as well as his passion for football, with WGAL News 8.

Both of Xavier’s parents passed away before he was eight years old. After that, his grandmother decided to enroll him at Milton Hershey School when he was in sixth grade to provide him with more opportunities and a stable environment.

“I was with people who were getting in trouble, and as I got older, my family didn’t want me to be like that,” Xavier said. “I’m really glad they sent me [to MHS].”

When he was in middle school, Xavier also had his first experience with football. He volunteered as a water boy for Lincoln University’s football team, and it ignited his passion for the sport. He became a starter for Milton Hershey School’s seventh grade football team, and he’s been on the field ever since.

Xavier will begin his senior season on Friday, Sept. 1 at the school’s first home football game. He serves as a lineman, and uses his emotional strength and passion for football to motivate himself and his teammates.

“You can get through anything. You just have to be resilient and keep your head up. Once you put your head down, then you’re done,” Xavier said.

Cheer on the Spartans this Friday as they battle CD East, or watch a live stream of the game!
