Steven is learning so much, and we welcome the change from football. Honestly, I am hoping he develops a love for basketball even more than football. Not that it's not physical, the kids are just not constantly wanting to take each others heads off. Anyhow, he and his classmates are the 5th graders, so they are the kids who only get to play during the last 2 minutes of the game. The 6th graders are the starters. I remember Steven saying to Uncle Pete how sorry he was that he didn't get to play more when he came to one of his home games. Uncle Pete was so wise in his response. He said, "Steven, buddy you gotta be the bug before you are the windshield."
Over Christmas break, Steven attended a basketball camp that is run by an ex NBA player. He learned so much at the camp, and dedicated himself to improving his game.
So far, his team is UNDEFEATED! They have a real chance of going to the equivalent of Play Offs next month. Go Crusaders!
Steven and his basketball classmates wear ties to school on home game days. They look like mini salesmen to me....lol.
So proud of our boy.
Uncle Pete is so smart with his advice.
