Well, its been a little bit of a trying week to say the least. I guess, as far as sports goes, I should be thankful that this happened to me in my “slow time”
For those that do not yet know. I was bitten by a brown recluse spider. We found out that I am extremely allergic and I ended up having what they determined was a seizure. After five units of blood and a lot of antibiotics and a week in CCU I am a little weaker but so excited for what is to come.
I found out that I have a lot of people that care about me. I am grateful for you all.
Summer camps are in full swing. And I will be calling Wolves games on Friday Nights before you know it. Just Eight Weeks from this Friday Night we will be in full force at Mount Vernon. It should be a great season.
The Aurora Houn Dawgs won the Class 4 District 11 Championship in dramatic fashion and went on, today, to claim the Class 4 State Title. It is no surprise that they dominate the All-District Team. Logan-Rogersville, who was one strike away from winning the Title themselves only managed one player on the first team.
Reeds Spring, who won their opening round contest, before losing to the eventual Champs landed a first teamer and a couple on the second team. And host Hollister got representation as well, putting two on the first team and three on the second team. Congrats to all that were honored…
For the past three days basketball players at Blue Eye have got the opportunity to work with former NCAA basketball coach Mike Jarvis.
Through his relationship with Brian Mitchell and Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Jarvis was happy to spend sometime helping the youngsters. Working with Bulldog coach Kyle Turner, Jarvis worked two sessions a day with the Blue Eye Athletes- the high school kids workouts followed a shorter session with younger Blue Eye basketballers.
Jarvis said that communication was probably the biggest skill that he wanted to work on with the kids this week. Getting them to talk to each other and being on the same page is vital to success in the team game. He also worked on some defensive skills and drills with the guys.
Jarvis won more than 350 games in his college coaching career. Perhaps, most known from his time at St Johns, he also spent time leading the programs at Boston University, George Washington, and Florida Atlantic. He also spent time as a high school coach, at which time he coached Hall of Famer Patrick Ewing.
