My Students

My players are a very energetic group that are great examples of the term student-athlete. They excel both in the classroom and on the court by giving their best efforts each and every time there is an opportunity to get better. All players have volunteered for various community service organizations in our community to help impact the lives of others. I definitely consider them to be winners and great ambassadors for our school. Please support us for this worthy cause.

My Project

With the assistance of this basketball equipment, all of the players in the program will be able to benefit from its usage. The Man Defensive Mannequin would supplement as an actual defender so that the players would be able to simulate game like conditions when practicing. This particular equipment will force our players to utilize better shooting form and technique. Unfortunately, we do not have any equipment of this kind currently available nor the funds within in our budget to purchase outright. This particular equipment will be an invaluable usage which would benefit our middle school, Freshmen, Junior Varsity and Varsity teams as a whole.
