“I can focus on me getting into a groove. Learning a new system, and we didn’t want to rush anything. I felt it was perfect timing just being able to come back home. To come back to a coach who allowed me to come back home. It meant everything to me to finally suit up and have my first game at the CLA. I had my parents out there, my brother, and my girlfriend. It felt good to play in front of them. They haven’t seen my play since 2018. It felt great to be out there in front of them.”

While things were in sync in nature, Woods lost his paternal grandparents on December 13. It was the same day when he was going to play in the Spring Valley. Indeed, Woods was really close with them as they lived only a couple of blocks away from there, so it did impact him.
With Ned and Helen Woods’s death’s ongoing tragedy, Seventh still appeared and played in the game. As he lost his grandparents in the fire, he didn’t let it get hold of him but only portrayed his professionalism.
“The tragedy kind of had me down, but they watched over me. Tragedies happen, but you have to play through them. They watched over me the whole game, and that’s the only reason I did it.”
When it comes to a celebrity, girlfriends and relationships get quite a sensitive topic. I mean, yes, because of their fans, and many more. Like Seventh Woods’ case, he has not sparked any rumors or scandals about his love life.
