Even though my high school career has ended, I still have to "Speak The Truth."
We ended our season Tuesday night in Memphis, TN at Mitchell High School for sub state. We were supposed to play them Monday, but their lights were not on when we entered the parking lot. I thought the lights would turn on in a couple of minutes or so. The police escorted us in. Yup, I felt protected. I had my tie on as usual and at the same time, I was meditating on the game. We sat in a dark gym waiting to hear a response. Some teammates were listening to music, talking, and some teammates were even quiet. That's a first.
Then out of the blue my coach said, "Let's go." We had to make it up the following day. Before the game, the team had to go to a funeral. One of our players father had passed away. We showed all the love we could for our teammate. We finally made it to Mitchell, and you know what? The lights were on this time.
We lost the game 73-61. I ended up with 21 points and 8 assists. I can say that I had a descent career. It wasn't too bad. I wish every team in the state the best of luck. I will be taking some official visits after the state tournament, and I plan to narrow my college choice down shortly.
