Today we drove to Perry, Michigan to watch the MACS State Basketball Championship. Two guys from our youth group were on the team from Faith Christian. Joel and I (along with the boys) have been to many games in the past 2 1/2 years. It has been fun to watch this team develop!
The Patriots from Faith Christian School in Clinton Township, Michigan have never been to a Boy's Championship for basketball. In fact, they've never even made it out of the first round of the tournament. Their goal was to get to the finals. They woke up this morning as contenders for a title, with one game left to play.
I have loved watching these guys play together. 3 of the starters are seniors and have finished their high school basketball careers. They've grown up together and will soon say goodbye to all they have known and branch out to what lies ahead. This morning they woke up as a basketball team, hoping to make history.
Tonight they will go to sleep as champions. Rest well, boys.
