Starting the new year with basketball, hunting

January 5, 2012

Happy new year to everyone! I welcomed 2012 in the same way I have been spending New Year’s Day for the last several years, taking my boys to a ball tournament. My good friend, Gary Gibson, coached a seventh-grade team, and Dallas Ward and I coached a sixth-grade team for a little weekend action in Tulsa. We have lots of great parents from here who drive their sons all over the two-state area to get their kids all the playing time they can. I would like to thank them because it takes several kids to make a team. We couldn’t do it without each other.
