At Wausau East High School, Bouche was a running back, a fixture in local sports coverage and someone recognized throughout the community.

BALTIMORE (AP) — Playing against the Baltimore Ravens defense turned out to be a real headache for Cleveland Browns rookie DeShone Kizer.

And Hannah's therapeutic savior might just be music.
