Upward Basketball 2014

This January & February Clayton played Upward Basketball for the 3rd year in a row.  He really enjoyed the season!  I think that the Upward organization (and our church, specifically!) does a great job with their sports programs.  This season, Clayton was #12 on the Wildcats team.  His main coach was a teenager that is in our youth group.  Clayton thought that Coach David was really cool.  After one game, he told me a story about their halftime pep talk.  In that particular game, they were behind by 10 points at halftime.  Coach David offered to buy them each a box of Fruit by the Foot if they would come back and win the game.  They didn't win, but they played extra hard for that half.  Ha!  I guess that Coach David is young enough that he remembers what motivates little boys.  ;)

Clayton worked really hard and scored a lot of goals throughout the season.  In one game, he made 4 baskets!  Even more importantly, he was a great sport and got the Christ-like star twice.  We are so proud of our boy!
