When I think of basketball, I think of that eight-year-old little girl dribbling down the court with nothing but the goal in sight. I think about the first basket I ever made when my dad held me on his shoulders and carried me to the goal with a little foam ball in my hand. I think of my first basketball team and the friendship we had and still do have. I think of when my dad took me to the courts by our house, and we would do a short one on one cause him to run out of breath. I think of all the gold stars I got from my upward league, and how they made me feel, then I think that 5th-grade girl who gave up. She didn’t see a point in playing sports and wanted just to sit around and go hang out with friends which were fun at that time, but didn’t help anything for her future, and when she got to the 6th grade and played a basketball game and remember how thrilling the sport was, she knew she wanted it back. She saw her brother succeed with his love for football, so why couldn’t she do the same with basketball. That’s why I play. -- D. Scott
