Here is our basketball player.
His vote for the team name of Blue Jays was chosen. One girl wanted to be named Blue Tigers, but Colton said that just doesn’t make sense. He explained: “There are white tigers, but not blue ones. Blue Jays are real birds, so that makes sense.”
This is his first year playing organized basketball so he has a lot to learn. But, he is doing so quickly. He had a few coaching sessions with his older cousin Trevor, and Daddy of course. He can dribble with both hands and likes to switch back and forth as he takes the ball down the court.
His coach has him play at the block mostly because he is the tallest kid on his team. We’ve had two games so far. He’s made some baskets and assisted in some. As always, he is a little hustler, good sport and a team player.
I love watching him scurry around the court with his hands up. Such a good Blue Jay : )
Brayden wanted to pose for a shot too. Goodness, I just love this kiddo, even though he squirms and cries almost the whole time because he wants to be out on the court with the “baw”. Notice the team colors. Full on family team spirit for us!!
