We had been looking forward to the opening of baseball season all year, so Dave and I carefully watched the calendar and made our schedule to attend the Leroy games in Demopolis today. I got a late call, however, to cover the AHSAA South Regional Basketball games, so we spent the day at the USA Mitchell Center instead. (Thanks Dave.) It was a long, 10-hour day, but this picture made it all worth while. This was a Brewbaker-Tech player getting a slam dunk. I was told later by Josh Bean (the high school sports writer for the Press-Register) that he is a candidate for Mr. Basketball.
UPDATE 03/17/10: His name is K.T. Harrell. He is a signee with the University of Virginia. This season he averaged: 27.5 points per game; 10.7 rebounds per game; 6.3 assists per game; and 2.8 steals per game.
