This year the Boys’ Senior Night was Jan. 28, at Baker High School with the game against the Bowman Bulldogs. There are four senior basketball players this year, Konner Flint son of Klint and Brenda Flint, Logan Graham son of Jason and Kelly Graham and Darin and Johnna Koenig, Nathan Hufford son of Kimberly and Chris Hufford, and Jory Miller son of Jonathan and Alissa Miller. We took the time to ask the senior players some questions this week regarding their last basketball season here at BHS.
When Konner described his basketball season he said, “It hasn’t gone the way we wanted it so far, but I know we can turn it around.” He mentioned that basketball has influenced his life by making him work better with others and as a team. To get in the right mindset he likes to block everyone out and just listen to music.
What Logan said about how his basketball season has been so far is “I feel like we have been playing hard in all of our losses and I believe we can turn it around in the second half of the season.” Logan stated “It has influenced my life greatly and taught me the value of hard work.” He continued to say that to get into the right mindset he listens to music and really focuses on what is happening.
Nathan said that he has been enjoying this season and it has been fun. “There has been a lot of running and it has made me a good team player,” is how he said basketball has influenced his life. Nathan explained how he gets himself in the right mindset by “Dressing out for each game, waiting for the coach to come and remind us of the skills we need to play.”
The final senior, Jory, said that the season is not going as planned, but they can change the outcome at Districts. When describing how basketball influenced his life he said “Basketball has influenced my life by helping fuel my competitiveness in other aspects of my life.” He mostly enjoys listening to music and thinking about the game to get in the correct mindset.
