It's just cool to have all these family connections and all the memories. From when I hear my uncle and my dad talk about playing at Johnston, it's just cool to see all the years represented.
I did a little prayer while I was up there. I was just focused on the form and knew it was going to go in. I wasn't going to miss it for my team, for my senior year.
Once you get to state, anybody can beat anybody. It's just a time when you get teams going beyond 100 percent and it's just so fun to be a part of. Every loose ball, every player's on the ground diving for it. Every point matters and you never know what will happen.
We knew the whole time we could play with them. We wanted to pound it inside, kick it back, and keep their defense working. That's what we started doing early in the game.
On the last possession, we all looked at ourselves and said if we play the best defense we have played all year and don't let them score, there is no way we can lose.
It was a great accomplishment for everyone. This is a starting point for next year. The seniors started it. We want it to be an expectation year in and year out for Johnston basketball.
