As the season draws to a close this February, an RFK Boys Varsity Basketball Team member looks back on the journey:

The RFK Boys Varsity Basketball Team has maneuvered their way through their games with unexpected season results. Despite suffering many losses throughout the season, the players were not heartbroken; their passion, dedication, and effort towards the sport increased as they completed each game.

Coach Alexander, the Boys Varsity coach, has encouraged these young men to keep fighting for what they want in life. He views life and basketball very similarly; he uses basketball as an example of character building and a way of life.

Coach Alexander explains, “It’s a tough world, and it’s competitive all the time. The same goes for basketball.”

As the season progressed, everyone in the team took their coach’s words to heart and motivated themselves to work harder and improve; however, this was not easy. There were many days where it was hard to concentrate because practice was early in the morning, yet the boys pulled through as they were all willing to push themselves to the limit.

Similarly, pre-season was a struggle for the boys. During these games, the boys were ready to get their game on and focus on the work that needed to be done. However, for the first eight games, their defense and offense were not up to par. It was a struggle to work with each other on the court due to the lack of communication and understanding of each other’s techniques.

After those initial games, the boys really shaped up and demonstrated their spirit and love for basketball. They improved their communication skills, which resulted in their defense and offense looking strong. Although some of the teams they played against were bigger and had taller members, the RFK boys played more aggressively to compensate for it.

This basketball season, there were more losses than wins, but this motivated the RFK Boys Varsity Basketball Team to fight harder to achieve success and finish the season strong. Most importantly, the boys matured and prioritized what means most to them based on what they learned from their experiences, all while enjoying what they love doing the most: playing basketball.
