Give A Bird A Break!
These Two

#10

Karterbbmv-11

He wears #10 for the Shenandoah 6th grade Raiders, but Karter will always be #1 in my book.

Our first grandchild who first opened our hearts to the thrill and fun of grandparenting, Karter is one special fella.  And he's growing up way too fast!

 

After a couple of weeks off for Christmas break, our favorite #10 hit the hardwood again last week.  A few photos from his last 3 games...

Introducing the starting line-up against a very tough Pendleton team...

FOUL!!!  One of the few that Pendleton was called for during the game...

Thankfully, Karter is a very good free throw shooter!

Although Karter played well, we were missing one of our starting players and Pendleton was just too tough for us this time.  We lost big...59-24.

The next night, we lost another of our starters.  And our competition didn't get any easier, as we faced much-larger Mt. Vernon.

It was a very rough game (again, very few fouls called) and Karter hit the floor hard a few times.  Makes Gramaw hurt!

Mt. Vernon had lots of great shooters...just one of the many 3-pointers they hit.

Although it was a valiant effort with a short-handed squad, not a pretty game for the Raiders.  Off to a rough start in 2020...0-2.

But last night was a different story.  We finally faced off against a team much closer to our size/class.  And we gave Blue River a thumping!

A THREE for Karter-man!!!  He came oh-so-close 3 more times...

Karter plays very well on defense...

...and knocked away or stole the ball several times.

He's getting tougher and more aggressive every game!

I love watching Karter play and am so proud of the young man he is growing to become.

He'll always be #1 in Gramaw's book, but on the basketball court our favorite 6th-grade Raider....

...is #10.
