Not alot of people can say they have had to overcome so many things at such a young age.
Lets take my man William Moore (Chattanooga Christian) for example.
The 6'4 wing had things going his way during a solid junior season a few years back before a devastating knee injury sidelined him for the summer.
With support from friends and family Big Will made it back and was having a superb senior campaign. Averaging in upwards of 30 points per game when the unthinkable happened.
He injured his opposite leg and was forced to miss his senior year.
We had Will as our diary participant and he was able to make one entry before the injury befalled him. We decided to discontinue the diary this past season in his honor.
As Will went through rehab he had tough decisions ahead about his future in hoops. Rehabilitation was going well and the strength was coming back so Will decided to get his game back before embarking on the road to a four year school by attending Chattanooga State.
A member of the TJCCAA and coached by former Tennessee player Jay Price, Chatt State will give Will the competition and help him get back to the player that he once was.
My friend I wish you nothing but the best and I truly value the friendship we have forged over the past four years.
Staying in the TJCCAA and moving all the way across the state. D'Alvin Brown (Covington) and Derrick Walker (Covington) will remain teammates as they will play for legendary Memphis coach Verties Sailes and the Saluiqis of Southwest Tennessee Community College.
Over at Dyersburg State, Freddie Currie (Spring Hill) will continue his college career at the West Tennessee campus.
Jumping the border, Tony Payne (Bolton) takes his game over to Coahoma Community College in Clarksdale, Mississippi. The Tigers are coached by Ira Peterson.
Finishing in the final four always dictates to getting some good new recruits and Connors State is no exception. The Cowboys and venerable coach Bill Muse completed the 2008-2009 campaign as a final four finisher of the NJCAA and for their reward Cadario Macklin (Ridgeway) will make the long journey to the Warner, Oklahoma campus.
