I pray that is they way your life will go. That you will gain confidence and courage with each new situation you experience in your life and use that to become a respectful, holy young man.
Thomas, for never having played basketball before, you did an awesome job. It was so fun to watch you. At your first game, you told pop you were nervous because you and him had never played basketball together before and you weren't quite sure what to do. It showed. Your first game was hilarious because I saw you in rare form. You were timid, reserved, and quite frankly looked a little lost out there on the court. But at each game we watched you get a little more aggressive and have a little more confidence. By the end of the season, you were an aggressive little boy out there dribbling and handling the ball with such confidence.
