He plays a lot like craft except he is our best shooter( him & one Other kid actually)
During the ttun gm they said Craft credits his footwork to youth soccer. My son is a great soccer player and soccer and basketball have a lot of concepts. I think soccer has made his footwork better for football also .
I never did organized Basketball as a kid just was a street baller.But it's amazing how good kids pick up on sports so young.
We have our first tournament (5th grade) Sunday we have 4 kids returning from last years team which won one gm. We have 3 kids not playing with us because they are on the 6th grade team ( long story - my son played some 6th grade last yr-bad idea)
Anyways we have 6kids one of which is only playing because we need a sub. Wish us well they look good but we have our work cut out!
Cool story bro...
That's hilarious. I've got a 13 year old Craft at my house too. A great role model for our kids.
Sorry, double post. Small phone - big fingers.

I've coached my son's basketball team for 3 years now and all of the kids are learning from Craft.
He's a great example to use when you're teaching them to be in the right position and how they should be moving without the ball. Not such a good example on when you should shoot the ball.
There is something about Craft that jumps out and makes kids pay attention to him. It's all good with me. He is used as an example in almost every practice we have.
Came out cold first gm ,after 3qtr down 17-5 we went on a furious run finally waking up made it 17-14 then their coached called to. We ended up losing 17-21 to Strasburg.
Then we played Newcommerstown we held them to 2 points at half and my son had like 5 steals and forced at least 5 more jump balls. We slowed it down and milked the clock and practiced a diff style and won 25-7.
Son saved a ball threw it at a kid busted his nose and blood was everywhere which caused a 10 minute break in the 3qtr we only scored 6 points after that.
Then we played West Holmes and they totally destroyed us 48-10 I believe. They had some huge kids we got down early and we just played timid. We didn't box out well all tourney so today we spent a whole practice on it. They do it in drills but then we played team scrimmage and they just won't do it.
I'm open to suggestions because I broke it down gave them drills but until they do it in gm situations im going to lose my mind!
