Special Olympics Basketball Game 2018

Special Olympics Basketball Game 2018


It’s just it’s the most fun game all
year just because of the excitement and the attitudes of the players and and we
uh it’s getting bigger and bigger and the teams are getting bigger and bigger
so we played with a deep rotation this year but not as deep as we had tonight
so we got everybody in and we had some good combinations and we had some bad
ones too so a had to have to be a little bit better coach in the second half and
we were able to get the victory. Well there’s a lot of people that put an
effort into this game and we show up and and you know put the basketball side
into it so for our guys it’s more rewarding for them than than anybody
else just to be a part of this and for the Special Olympians that they’re part
of our community you know that we see them often in the community they’re our
friends and we just love hanging out with them. It’s a great it’s a great
event to be able to like certainly community when there was a great crowd
we raised a lot of money with the event this the athletes have so much fun it’s
really cool to do it with the men’s team too I mean obviously they won a national
championship this year and to be have those seniors on the court again and for
our players to be mixed with their players and then some Olympians and it
was just it was awesome. Well it was obviously a goal to beat last year which
is twenty four thirty so we beat it and it just feels really good cuz all the
money goes straight to area five and it just makes my heart melt. It’s awesome
because the Ferris athletes always kind of help out the Special Olympians they
make sure like tonight Rachel they made sure she got a basket they tried lifting
up Josh to dunk like it’s just fun seeing the collaboration seeing them all
work together. All the money goes to area five and that goes towards like
transportation to their events their uniforms that they wear and like
hotel rooms food that kind of thing so it’s just really nice to give back. Alright
