Building our Front Line


McCale, Bird, Parish….We’re building our basketball team starting with a strong front line. As many of you may know, when a boy turns 3 (2 for girls) you can measure them, double that amount, and it’s a pretty accurate representation of how tall they will be give or take an inch. When Draven was 3, he was 42 inches tall, which translates to 7ft tall. Brody measured out to be 40 inches tall, which translates to 6ft 8 inches tall. Looks like Draven will be our Center, and Brody will be our Power Forward, which is appropriate for Brody’s personality. He would rather run over someone as opposed to run around them. At this point, PJ is very close in size to what Draven was so we’ll see what he measures in a couple years…he may be the very first 7ft tall point guard. ;o) ~ Pierce

I didn't know that tidbit, I will have to check out our stats...don't think our height will be anywhere near yours, but Bella will probably be a good tackle in football...she is one tough cookie!

That is so perfect for Pierce. I am glad you are working on your own b-ball team, only 2 more to go right?
