There’s nothing better than young kids playing the game with so much passion.
For Brock Foster, the 7th grader, at Washington Middle school, basketball is his life.
He’s loved the game since day one. One game gave him the confidence to push towards that high school goal and eventually college.
The panthers were facing Eureka Middle School, they were down 29-12 at the half.
They had a huge deficit to fight for middle school.
They tied it up at the end, ended up getting the ball back and it was all Brock.
That one three pointer that saved the game on a 53-50 win, ended up giving him all the confidence in the world.
“I was just thinking that we need to hit a shot and get something going. No one was really open and they weren’t guarding me to get the inbound so I just made a move.I didn’t even realize I made a move and just shot it and it had some back spin and went in. Our whole team just rushed me after the shot and it was just an awesome moment,” says Brock Foster.
“It was very exciting to see him hit that last shot. It’s one of those things you’re not going to forget. I’ve coached in a lot of big games, state title games, this one is one I’ll remember along with those other ones, because we came back from such a huge deficit we came back in dramatic fashion, it’s awesome to see the kids reaction, that’s why we do it, for the kids. Very proud of him this is something he’ll remember his whole life,” says Head Coach Kevin James.
