Ooops He Did It Again

... I can NOT believe it! He did it again. A broken foot. A Jones Fracture! It's his left foot this time, and it was during a basketball game this time. So much for the rest of Winter and the Spring season :(

ChurchBall 2013

Time for CHURCH ball! The Jordan Oaks 1st ward does seem to have a lot of basketball playing boys, with the Blackhams providing three. We are the only ward that was able to actually field both a priests team and a teachers/deacons team. All the other wards are combined with ALL the young men, and still often multiple wards combined as well. So our older group, being ALL priests, does dominate. Our younger group has it tough, as they don't have any older boys, yet do have to play against priests on other teams.

Winter Basketball Callahan

Callahan's first points back after the break ... for THREE

Callahan's team is playing in two leagues. The Salt Lake Superleague and the Utah County Bantam League ... with Keaton's games conflicting on Wednesday nights, and the Utah County games being ... in Utah County, I haven't been able to make it to many, so there aren't a lot of videos yet. Callahan isn't quite getting the playing time (or the plays) that he wants, it's a bit of a slow recovery (he had some new pain in his foot as he hit the floor again). The team has had their share of wins, and their losses and still been quite close,  (with the exception of the Lehi game). The losses aren't quite as fun to make highlights of, but they do still have some good shots!

A Break in Basketball

Well, as active as Callahan is, it was probably inevitable that we'd have to deal with injury. The actual break was due to a trampoline, but it created quite a break in Callahan's basketball. As the Summer season ended, there were FIVE WHOLE WEEKS between that end, and the start of Fall. This was the longest Callahan had gone without a game in years!  Then, just a week or so before the first Fall game, Callahan broke his foot. It was the bottom of the foot, just under the pinky toe. The doctor said it could be considered a Jones Fracture, which unfortunately is a very slow healing break. And sure enough, it was SLOW. Callahan was in a walking boot for 10 weeks, and then still had to refrain from any running/jumping for another 4-5 weeks. So the break in September, put him out for the rest of 2012. We finally got the go ahead to return (slowly), so he's getting back into it (about halfway through the Winter season).
