Michael volunteered to be a Jr. Jazz basketball coach this season for a group of Provo middle-schoolers. It was so fun to watch Michael as the leader of this little team - the boys just loved him and thought he was so awesome!
The team was pretty terrible...but they still had fun season working on their lay-ups and even made it to the second round of the play-offs! They showed a ton of improvement from the start of the season, which I think proves how great their coach was!
The city provides each team with some tickets to an actual Jazz game and so we got to take eight of the boys. I was a nervous wreck the whole time! I was just so certain that we were going to come home with fewer boys than we left with - in the end it all turned great! It was really funny to spend an evening with a bunch of eighth grade boys, but it was fun to get to know them all and see how much they admire Michael!
