Boys & Girls Club teens face off in a competitive 篮球 showcase
On Friday, January 24, 2020, the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Kalamazoo’s Lake Street unit took a trip to a memorable 篮球 game against the Boys & Girls Club of Lenawee in Adrian, Michigan. There hasn’t been any time when Lake Street has gone up against another club outside of their counterparts, Northeastern Boys & Girls Club and Douglass Boys & Girls Club. So, for them, this is one of their biggest opportunities to show what they’re made of and make a statement that they themselves are a talented club full of excitement.
“虽然我们不以有组织的方式实践中，我们相互打所有的时间，”老人中心卡拉马祖jakeise Gardner说。 “所以这是几乎一样，如果我们练习。我们得到更好的交相辉映的;因此，我们需要显示在球场上的那个”。
The Boys & Girls Club Lake Street unit is one step closer to beginning a professional team with the teens. A selective few players have been notified if any information on the league comes out. This is essential for the players of the unit because those like Gardner have a passion for the sport and are willing to do whatever it takes to showcase their skills and get potential college scouts looking in their direction. These players are hoping to get the opportunity to form a league, play against other clubs, and sharpen their abilities, not only for their own benefits but to represent their Boys & Girls Club.
Senior Jakeise Gardner had a mesmerizing night putting up 35 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists, and 3 steals. With a few jaw-dropping highlights, such as his dunks that shocked the crowd of the Adrian Boys & Girls Club of Lenawee, Gardner has put his foot down and guaranteed that losing was not going to be on his mind at all. Gardner has grown up in a family of purebred 篮球 players that are known for their impressive abilities; therefore, he sets a very high standard for himself on the court. Disciplined and determined, Gardner knew he wasn’t going down without a fight.
“没有办法，我旅行发挥ESTA远出城只输了，” Gardner说。 “我们要发挥我们最困难的，无论是谁在场上。”
