Beloved grand-daughter Faith Atchley, All-American, was leading scorer/rebounder/assist maker in her team’s recent 16-9 victory over an Amazon team from Covenant School. Faith finished with six points, ten rebounds and three assists. She plays point guard. She also mixed in six steals on defense, though in the Christian Private School world, steals are actually called “Retrievals.”
On one play, Faith caught a defensive rebound, dribbled the length of the court with her right hand, was met at the top of the key by no less than three members of the opposing team, crossed over left while facing up, beat the triple team and hit a left handed floater at the foul line extended while being fouled. I would call her “L’il Kobe” but that is not fair to Big Kobe.
Amazing. Just amazing.
She is, after all, all of eleven years old.
