Number 13 here is my kid and I couldn’t be prouder of him.
Not because he’s on a winning team, because he’s not. They’ve yet to win a single game so far. I’m actually prouder of him because he’s on a team that might not be the absolute best.
Every game he still goes in there and no matter how bad the score may be, he gives it 100%. In the last minutes of the game where there’s no hope of making up the deficit in score, he plays harder.
It’s easy to go in there and play when your team is dominating, but it takes character to not quit when you’re losing.
Life lessons are tough and it’s tough as a parent to watch him have to learn this one again and again, but I am so happy he’s my son.
