Basketball doesn't build character it reveals it.-- Author Unknown
We weren't sure what to do. Tryouts would be as tough as they always were, but this year the coach decided to cut the numbers from 40 players to 30, (that includes Freshman, Sophomores, Juniors, AND Seniors) and so we were pretty bummed.
Taylor decided to tryout anyway and see how it went. It was his left hand that was broken (AND in a cast), but he did amazingly well at handling the ball even with his handicap.
Needless to say he made the Sophomore team! Only seven sophomores made it this year. There were 15 last year. He was pretty happy. The sophomores did AWESOME and were always either first or second in region the entire season. Taylor also played on the JV team as well.
It was a great season and I loved attending every home and away game! Taylor really did well this year. He is a great rebounder, passer, thinker, and great at stealing the ball. His high score was 14 points in a game this year.
I am so proud of that boy!

Taylor always had great support and cheerleaders.
Me with Dave's parents on the left and my parents on the right.
His cousins even came all the way from Arizona to watch him! Well, okay they had a few other commitments too, but this was numero uno! haha
This is my friend Robin ↓ and my parents at his game at Bonneville, my Alma Mater. I wasn't sure if I should wear blue and gold and be a loyal Laker, or wear purple in support of Taylor. I wore purple....but was pretty tempted to wear blue and gold. Robin was also a Laker and notice she is being loyal.
My Dad thinking he is being sneaky with the bunny ears. ↑

My cute chocolate buddy Jaida Bug came and found me during one of the games and sat on my lap the entire game! I loved it!!! It was a good thing I had my chocolate supply in tote! Isn't she adorable! I love this girl!
PURPLE everywhere!!!!!! Gotta love it!!!
Way to go Taylor and CONGRATS on a SUPER SEASON!!!
