“We have a very young team. A bunch of freshmen, a couple of sophomores and a couple of eighth graders. And they bought into the system and said, Hey, you know, we got an opportunity to do something special, and during the time we started the first game in November, I saw these guys handle it pretty well were laughing,” said David Salley. Curtis Baptist basketball head coach.

The coach also presented awards to the team, along with state rings, in recognition of the players’ hard work during the season.

“I told the guys, remember this because not everyone gets the feeling of winning a state title,” Salley said.
