I woke this morning with an awesome text from Whitney Thompson, letting me know that she was going to continue her basketball career by playing at Brevard College. This was such an awesome message. I’ve loved watching Whitney play for the West Henderson Falcons for several years. Whitney was an integral player in the lineup, and she absolutely never ever – ever – stopped playing hard and working for her team and teammates. She worked hard every minute she was on the court, and for the few practices I peeked in on she was hard at work there, too.
So I am so excited that she will have the opportunity to play at Brevard. I am excited and proud of you, Whitney. Thanks for letting me be a part of your high school journey, and I’ll see if I can’t make the trip to Brevard to see you play there, too!
