A Legacy in the Making…. Three years ago, in the beginning… we won our first trophy. So we decided to get more serious… We practiced whenever we could… and played whenever we could. And when we couldn’t practice or play, we watched and learned…. And when we weren’t practicing, playing, watching, and learning; we were spending time together as a team….a family Graduations… Aron Watler Denson Watler Adventures…. Ziplining in West End Paintballing in French Key Church Services… Harvest at Methodist Methodist School Celebration Sharing in all of the things they loved…. Decorating my daughter’s play room Thanksgiving feast And some of the things I loved… Downward dog at sunset Finishing our sun salutation Becoming more than just a team, but a family. Nurt and his Grandmother My daughter’s graduation Flowers Bay Boys became a way of life…but we wanted to do more. So we painted an HIV Prevention Mural in our community The first few strokes Nearly there… And it was beautiful! Then we did an HIV Prevention/Safe Sex Event… Teaching other youth about Protecting yourself is cool! safe sex And karma paid off…we got the first real basketball court built in our community!!!! First game on the court Yeah!!!! So we played, and played, and played, and played…. And then we got officially inscribed into the National Basketball Federation of Honduras And that same month 8 boys from our community got chosen to play basketball on scholarship in Tegus So we got an idea and took a trip to the Mainland Lucky Nurt who got to tag along And we went to see how amazing our boys were performing both in school and on the court Winning their division tournament Representing the Island! So we tracked down Neil Roberts, who started an organization that helps youth in Honduras get scholarships for basketball. And we showed him videos of the Flowers Bay Boys. And he was so impressed that he organized a training camp in June of 2013 so that other recruiters from both Honduras and the United States could come watch us play ball. So we took the journey…. We learned a lot of new drills And won EVERY game we played And now 6 more of our boys have been chosen to receive scholarships for room/board and a private school education through C.A.B. O. (Central American Basketball Organization) where they will proudly represent Roatan both on the basketball court and off. Isn’t it time that we proudly represent them too??
