SEMINOLE - Former St. Pete Catholic standout Justin Piazza dreamed of playing NCAA Division I football since he was a kid running plays in youth football.

After being accepted to the University of Missouri and taking time off from playing football, he was sure the opportunity would come. But he knew it wasn’t going to be easy.

“I definitely wanted to play again. I just didn’t know how it would work into my plans going to Mizzou,” said Piazza. “With last year, I just didn’t feel ready. I knew I wasn’t physically ready to where I needed to be. Plus trying to get myself established with college, everything was still new to me.”

SEMINOLE - Brody Patrick, son of the Seminole Ward Bishop Alex Patrick and Edy Patrick, departed to the Missionary Training Center on Oct. 15, to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Like all Latter-day Saint missionaries, Patrick will serve without pay from the Church. His financial support will come from funds he and his parents have saved for that purpose. He will be serving in the Guadalajara, Mexico, Spanish-speaking mission for 24 months. Patrick is from the Seminole Ward, located on 9000 106th Avenue in Largo.

Patrick graduated in 2014 from Seminole High School and was a lifeguard at Clearwater Beach. He joins thousands of other Latter-day Saint missionaries, a handful from Pinellas County, who are serving in locations in North and South America, Africa, Asia and Europe. They do not choose their area of labor, but go where they are called by the church.
