Winder-Barrow High School is relatively quiet on Monday morning.
With the student body out for a holiday, the only sound that can be heard is coming from the school gym where the boys basketball team is holding a morning practice session. As the practice begins to wrap up, players are shooting free throws as first-year coach David Sokol and his assistant coaches look on.
The coach doesn’t say anything, however, this is an important part of the practice session. Free throws, as any basketball coach will tell you, are as important a part of the game as anything. That’s why they are stressed so much.
