County Champs!

Henry County, Indiana 7th grade Boys' Basketball County Champions...the SHENANDOAH RAIDERS!

That's our oldest grandson Karter, in the back row between #21 & #25. They have only lost 1 game this season, definitely a basketball force to be reckoned with as they get older.

Due to all the strict Covid restrictions in our county, I was only allowed to watch him play twice. But I did get a few photos of Karter in action...

Warm-ups...

 


Karterbb-2

Karter was a super-sub this year. On any of the other county teams he'd definitely be a starter, but this class at Shenandoah is blessed with lots of very good athletes. But he gets lots of playing time and makes very few mistakes while he's on the court.

Karter is a good ball handler...

...and plays good defense. 




Karterbb-7

He's a very unselfish player, always looking for the open man under the basket. But he's got sharp-shooting skills of his own, and once in awhile he lets it fly. Three on the way, baby!!!

We're waiting for that early teen growth spurt to happen. Right now Karter's smaller stature is a handicap against much-bigger opponents, but just over this past year he's become much more aggressive and strong. He reminds me so much of his dad Kristoffer at that age...he will soon catch up with most of those other guys! Just wait....

He's learned not to let size intimidate him!

Scores like this were typical all year. Our coach did not try to run the scores up, but what's a coach to do...tell you team NOT to score?!

I love this shot...you can see the determination on Karter's face and his shoulder muscles are beginning to pop!

Another lop-sided Raider win! We'll take it every time!
