I heard a quote once that I think fits well with our 5th grade boys Viking basketball team….
"Talent wins games, but teamwork and intelligence wins championships." - Michael Jordan
Every weekend during basketball season, these boys go out there and play their game while all of us parents and grandparents excitedly cheer them on.
There is one recurring theme that we witness game after game, tournament after tournament and that is teamwork.
They truly define the word.
I absolutely love to watch them look for the open man and pass the ball around the floor.
On the court, there is a certain trust among the boys and they just seem to 'click'.
If one boy is having an off game, there is always someone there to step in.
When I look at them, I honestly can't say that one or two kids are our 'superstars'.
I know I am not alone when I say that I am proud of them and the leaders they are becoming both on and off the court.
I'm so thankful that I get to be there, cheering them on!
I hope they always remember to stick together and have fun!
