Since I’ve been focusing on the Big Time Hoops site and the girl’s side of basketball, I haven’t had a chance to catch a lot of the MVCS boys games. The move of the (somewhat) traditional MVCS Saturday games has thrown me for a loop as well, so I was disappointed when I missed their homecoming game last week.
It’s always fun to watch these guys play, and since this is the third year I’ve been following coach Adler and his squad, I’ve had the opportunity to see the younger players develop, namely Zack Adams and Tommy Adler.
Both were instrumental in the ’07 state championship run and no doubt the team will look to Zack and Tommy for their leadership this year.
Zack, pictured to the left, is one of the local athletes that makes my job easy–his athleticism and presence on the court makes him a great subject to capture (Cruces’ Zoe Meade comes to mind, too). He also showed up on my last post about my “Top 10” action shots from 2008.
Tommy and Zack, like the rest of the team, are a great bunch of guys; true gentlemen and genuinely nice people.
Now we just need to talk about the mohawk…
