I am really quite impressed with all of your newest achievements at Reardan high school ever since you transferred there. First off, id like to mention your amazig basketball achievements. I know you were never the star athelete, but really, you've come a long way at Reardan. You are starting on varsity for goodness sakes, and you are scoring 12 points a game, all as a freshman. I think your coach is right saying you might achieve all state honors in a few years. Just keep up the hard work and keep shooting from the perimeter is all i have to say. You seem to have a knack for the jump shot, so work to your advantage, keep taking it. By the way, just to comment on your performance against Rowdy in the rematch between Reardan and Wellpinit, you really pulled it off. It doesn't matter how many points you scored, you held a player who's virtually been unstoppable this year (averaging 25 points per game), to only four points. That is nothing for Rowdy, and i think you both know that. I was going to say though, and I know you noticed too, you are beginning to lose your friendship with the kid. You really have to make a move soon and try to get Rowdy back, otherwise, I'm just getting the feeling that the next 3 years in high school are going to be hell for you. You're going to be going to Reardan every day, leaving your old best bud behind, and on top of that, kicking his butt in basketball. My advice to you is (if this isn't too out of the park); try to get Rowdy to join you in your journey to the outside world (Reardan). Persuade him or his parents to let him come to Reardan so he can meet new kids and be the sport star he was meant to be, and better yet, you'll be playing ball with him for years to come. Just throwing it out there. I have about 40 pages left and i'm really looking forward to it.
