The second episode of THE SEASON is going to focus on the guys being student athletes. Issiah said in the first episode, “This is really run like a college program”, and it’s true. In November they spent consecutive weekends in Rhode Island and Kentucky playing in tournaments. I focused a lot of my interviews asking them, “How do you find time for school when you’re out of town every weekend?” A lot of their responses were just, “That’s what we’re supposed to do.” I interviewed DJ, Godwin and Avery last week. I plan on getting a few more player interviews this coming week.
Yesterday I got to spend time with their ACT Prep teacher Christine Lee. She works with a lot of the players to help them prepare for the ACT and SAT. She spoke extensively about how she runs the class and what it’s been like working with the players. It was a great interview for this second episode.
The guys have a game tonight at Green Valley High School (not to far from my house which is nice). This second episode will have game footage from Green Valley and the Desert Pines game. I’m probably going to spend the rest of December putting together episode #2.
