His FIRST Varsity Game...

Peter played his first Varsity Basketball game with the Untouchables for JAM FALL 2009. He started and played most of the game. The team played against CHAOS Black, one of the best teams in the state, but lost by twenty points. Peter played amazing defense and sank two baskets and almost made a three-pointer...not bad for his first Varsity game.

At the end, we asked him how he felt and he said, "I think I play harder and better against varsity players, but they're tall." Peter is 5'10" now and still growing, drinking four glasses of milk each day - whew! We told him to remember that this time last year he was telling his trainer, Maurice, during a tough workout: "You do know I'm only twelve years old, right?" I guess all that hard work is definitely paying off.

Now Peter and his dad go to the school gym every morning from 6:30am-7:30am to run shooting drills. Hopefully, by the time the school league starts he'll be sinking his three point shots with consistency.
