As we enter into the final weekend of games for our fall teams, a quick shout out to this crew. Human nature is a funny thing. It’s so easy to take everything for granted. So easy to forget what the spring was like. So difficult at times to simply be thankful that we are able to be together on the court in any capacity.
I am proud of these young players for working hard and doing their best. It was really wonderful to see the smiles and hear the laughter each time we got together. A fun group that was truly enjoyable to coach. ...

I want to show some love to the one that we call Kawhi. We tend to give nicknames to many of our players, as Coach Zach can most certainly attest to.
I dubbed Emily “Kawhi” many years ago. For the simple fact that she does it all on both ends.
Need a bucket - she’s your girl.
Need a stop - she’s your girl!
I can’t tell you how proud I am of her progress. She came to us a quiet, timid player. And due to her work ethic and consistent willingness to be pushed, she has added an extra layer of aggression to her game. We asked her to transition to point guard this season, a position that she is not accustomed to playing. Without hesitation she has not only accepted her new role - but thrived in it. Never one to make an excuse, Emily has learned on the job and it’s made everyone else around her better. The best part? Her teammates absolutely love her. Deservedly so - she’s simply an outstanding kid.
We love her too - the best is without a doubt yet to come. She is not even close to her ceiling. She also clearly doesn’t like my dinosaur shirt. I guess that’s why Kawhi left the raptors. ...
