Banks County’s boys basketball team have started the season on a strong footing. Before the holiday break, the team was 9-2 overall.
While the Leopards’ success can be attributed to hard work, good coaching and teamwork, the boys have also done something this season that has a profound impact in their daily lives.
Taking a variation off a common practice, the Leopards have dedicated their season in a unique way. The players and coaching staff have each individually dedicated the season to someone that inspired them. The unique part is that to keep a constant reminder, the initials of the dedicatee are written on the player’s shoes.
While some of the players share dedications, there are individual reasons for selecting that person. One particular person some of the players chose was Cody Gowder, who was a close friend to several players. Other dedicatees range from family to friends, but all are someone who inspired the player.
