Snow Days: Feeling like a kid again

By Michele Dotson

In Mint Hill, snowflakes the size of quarters fell from gray skies. I donned my ski bibs, winter boots, turtle neck, sweatshirt, hat and gloves and trekked outside with my 14 year old daughter to do some sledding in the driveway.

Despite the loss, they put up stiff competition that only gave way in the last play of the game for a final score of 50-48.    For player DJ Little, the team’s impressive season wasn’t a surprise. “That’s always my expectation,” he said. To stay focused, player DJ Little takes some shots before the game and listens to music. Team member Justice Wallace ˆmaintains his focus by viewing each game as a fresh slate. […]
