County CHAMPS!

Our grandson Kaden (he's partially hidden behind #22) led his 7th grade team to the Henry County championship over the weekend.

These boys were not to be denied! And our Kado #33 likes to take control right from the start!

Coach Jeff, a longtime basketball coaching legend in our area, did a fantastic job building this team over the season.

Fun having my cousin Rusty refereeing the game!

While Kaden is definitely the leader and (in this grandma's humble opinion) the best player on the team...

...he is also the biggest fan and encourager of his teammates. Most games he has as many assists as he does baskets. Nothing makes him happier than seeing his friends succeed on the court.

After cruising to a win in their opening contest, they watched their 8th-grade friends play while they waited for the championship game.

Always thinking basketball...

Kaden's fan club ready for the championship game...

His teammates recognize Kaden's value and leadership...

...and like to crown him "king of the court" at each game.

Kaden IS king of the court when he's out there!

...Kaden cheers on his teammates from the bench as the clock winds down.

A very happy group of boys!

I can't help but think these coaches must be relieved for the season to be over. And what a great way to end it!

After a shaky start to the season, these boys worked hard to get better and better each game to finish with a season record of 13-8.

So proud of Kaden and his 7th grade team...

County CHAMPS!
