The first time I lost my teeth was in hockey. I got them knocked out again this year.
Coach Inman told us he comes to watch state every year, and that this is the best atmosphere of any of the sports. He wasn't lying.
Our motto was, 'Let's make history,' or at least that was the unofficial motto. We kept saying, let's do something profound. We did. Well be remembered. We'll be back here in 25 years being remembered for this. We won the state title. We are the state champions.
As a team, this is what we live for. I remember at dinner after the Duncanville game, we were completely exhausted and our legs were still twitching for more.
Getting John was an all-around blessing. His basketball I.Q. is through the roof and he's humble about it. Your hands better be up any time John has the ball. He won't look at you the entire possession and still he drops it right in your hands.
He said we could win state. He says what we're all thinking. We love that he's not afraid and holds nothing back. He says exactly what he's thinking. You've got to appreciate that.
