MIDDLE SCHOOL BASKETBALL

We lucked out this year. Kayla is on the 8th grade A basketball team and as a 7th grader, Kaleb happened to make the A team as well. The reason I lucked out is because the two teams travel together which means every game day is a double header. I also love that they both can watch each other play.
Kayla is #34

David and Goliath.
Kayla getting ready to "box out".
Wondering when Kaleb's body is going
to catch up with his almost size 12 feet.

I put together a little clip of Kaleb's game. The first two clips are of him playing great defense. The second two are of him going up for a shot, getting fouled and shooting his free throw shots.

Great defense, indeed! More videos, please. (I got a kick out of him pounding the ball at the free throw line; methinks being a little more gentle would be an easy way to up the FT%.)

Proud uncle.

My 5'9" (approx.) brother had size 12 feet. I used to call him a clown.
