Extra Love for the Boys Basketball Seniors
February 23, 2023
With the Fair Grove High School Boys Basketball season coming to end of season, senior night is right around the corner.
Senior night is a night to celebrate and recognize the senior athletes on their final home game. This year, the boys basketball program is recognizing their two seniors on February 14th, at home.
The two seniors on the boys basketball team consist of Jaxon Rowden, and Timothy Butler. Rowden explained his anticipation for senior night, but also his reluctance, “It’s something I’m looking forward to, but glad it’s still a couple games away. I have enjoyed it in the past but it’s also a sad time to have to hug my teammates knowing the season is coming to an end.”
Timothy also expressed his viewpoint on this year, and the wrap up of the season, “The memories I’ve made this season have been found in all the wins, the fun plays at practice, and the bonding experiences with my teammates. I’m amazed with my teammate’s skills on all three levels of the floor and their willingness to work hard…You can’t not love the game, especially when you start dunking.”
Atticus Brandes (10), a fellow player on the team, expressed his feelings about the seniors, “Tim brought a good energy to the team and overall was a good guy.” Along with Kyle Winterberg (10) explaining his hopes for the program, “Our seniors have really helped us out one being a main player on the court and the other bringing excitement no matter where he is at, my hopes for the future of our team is to keep succeeding and keep getting better day by day.”
The boys basketball record so far is 15-6. On senior night, the boys compete against Clever high school, whose record is 3-16. Statistics show that the Fair Grove boys will be likely to pull out a win on their senior night.
Rowden expressed his basketball experience overall, and the love he has for this sport, “Other than getting hurt junior year I loved high-school basketball and being a part of the team. I grew in a way that you have to stay together as a team if you want to succeed… My favorite thing so far is the new relationships and friendships I’ve been a part of and knowing no matter what they have your back.”
Senior night occurs on Valentine’s Day.. a new way of showing our seniors some extra love on their last senior night as they finish out their high school basketball career.
