This past weekend was extremely hectic for I.T. Carlow basketball as we had a college match on Friday, followed by two national league matches on Saturday and Sunday. We were unsuccessful in terms of wins, but in regard to effort and heart we succeeded with flying colors. It can be very demanding on the body and mind to play back-to-back-to-back like that with tough competition.
Being an older and experienced player on the team, I try my best to lead my teammates and make them better every chance I get. I am a firm believer of the quote, “Never get too high, and never get too low”. This team works off that idea as well. When we went on a winning streak a few weeks ago, they never got too high and they just continued to be hungry for another win. Inversely, with every punch we took this weekend, we kept getting back up and never got too low.
This team has an immense amount of heart, passion, and fight. Our record does not indicate how good this team is and how hard they work. Even if we were winless, I would still be proud to be part of this group of guys. As our season winds down, I just want to give a huge thank you in advance for making me feel like family and making me a better person and player. You are a special group, and I will forever consider you brothers.
