It may be a little hard to see, but the picture has my son in the black uniform “packing” the kid about to shoot. The kid shooting is about 6 feet 4 inches tall and Brandon is right at 6 feet tall. It was a great moment.
I wish I could say we went on to win the game, but they beat us 65 to 61. That’s not too bad for a 4A school playing a 6A.
Brandon scored 8 points. Two of those buckets were threes. He had one other three pointer rim out.
His coach was very positive about the whole outing for the team. We weren’t really expecting to even hang with these guys, but by the end of the third period it was obvious that not only could we hang with them, we had a real chance of beating them.
This was Brandon’s first varsity basketball game. He is a junior and the coach announced the starting team the day before the game. Brandon was on that list. He was so excited he called me on the way home to tell me. We are very proud of him as a person. Things like this are just icing on the cake.
