Callahan - Gene Fullmer Spring 2012

Callahan has been playing basketball year round at Gene Fullmer since 3rd grade. We came into Spring with eight players (Callahan, Stockton, Jared, Luis, Parker, Brendan, Steven and Porter) and then the rec center filled the two open spots. For the most part, being a recreational league, our team does win easily each week, EXCEPT when we played Brian's team, which was our one loss (same as in the Fall). 

As I've gotten SO many of Callahan's games on film, and currently he's more into some of his other leagues, I'm not video taping the games at Gene Fullmer this season. There is a track above the basketball court, and before I started videoing all the games, I'd get in some walking/jogging while I watched. I've gone back to doing that (after I pay my $5 for a day pass, I get my money's worth during both Keaton and Callahan's game ... although I don't always FEEL like walking at 8:00 at night after a long Saturday).  I had to laugh one week when all the boys turned and waved at me as I walked ... I had my camera, so I did grab a shot! I also did take one day off and grabbed some video. You can see it HERE.

Spring Team!

Keaton - Gene Fullmer Spring 2012

The Blackham boys are so happy that Gene Fullmer provides a venue to play basketball year round. Keaton is playing Spring season, with much the same team as during Junior Jazz, with a few additions (Jacob, friend and neighbor is on the team, which is a lot of fun!). I was a little worried about this season, as it is 5th/6th combined, and our team is over half 4th graders ... but they won every game.  I decided to go back to jogging the track during the games, but did take one day off to grab a video (see it HERE).

This still shot is right after Keaton made a three ... 
love Callahan and his friends cheering in the background!

The last day of Spring season...

Spring Fling AAU

The Copper Hills team signed up for the AAU Spring Fling, but as it's also baseball season, they have been missing Blake, Brandon and Sam from some games ... No videos yet, between some TOUGH teams and me not being able to make some of the games (the winning games no less), there aren't that many highlights to work with! Might just make a combo video ... if I get around to it!

  • Game1: Copper Hills v South Valley. This game was held at Cottonwood High School, my alma mater! It was fun to go back there. The game was in the auxiliary gym, and I have to say during my three years at the school, I had never stepped foot in it. I didn't even know it was there! While this was a game we could have won, we didn't. 24-39.
  • Game2: Copper Hills v Morgan: I didn't go to this game as I had a soccer game with Colton. Gray stopped by on the way home from work. It was a good game, and an easy win for the boys. Not sure of the exact score ... hubby said they won by 12.
  • Game3: Copper Hills v Lone Peak: Just a bit of an off game. Loss 23-46
  • Game4: Copper Hills v Lehi: Wow, these guys were big and good and they demolished our boys! Loss 18-76. Ouch!
  • Game 5: Copper Hills v Blaze: After the last game, this was a nice break. An easy win. (I didn't go to see or get video).
  • Game 6: Coppers Hills v SL Prospects: We knew this would be a tough game. This team is consistently a leader in the AAU. While the team lost, Callahan actually had a good game with 18 or so points. I didn't go though, so no video.
  • Game 7: Copper Hills v Toros: We didn't have Sam, Brandon or Blake. Callahan and Parker had just come from another game and were tired, not that it would have made that much of a difference, as this was another one of the top teams. Loss 29-69.
  • Game 8: Copper Hills v Blaze: We played this team earlier in the season and won, and again it was an easy win. I did get video and hopefully will get that up soon (this text will be removed and a link added when that happens :) Win 58-35.
  • Game 9: Copper Hills vs Lone Peak: Similar to the first time we faced this team ... our boys were really off the first half ... did manage to come back the second, but not enough. Loss 23-38. That eliminated our team and ended our Spring season.
