    I have watched this kid and this team all year. I've missed 3 games. They are growing leaps and bounds as a team. It is amazing and they are a joy to watch. I cant wait to get to Chapel Hill and watch them finish what they started. Everybody was talking trash when they lost in the tournament to Nash Central. What did these young men do? They went back to the gym and worked and practiced and didn't dwell on the conference tournament. The result? A well earned trip to play for the state championship in the Dean Smith Center in Chapel Hill. Congratulations guys and Coach Gainey on bringing our community back together after all the negative press we get. It's great to sit with friends, both black and white and cheer for a common goal. You guys are already winners in my mind.
