Preface by Janx….
Brent and I often joke whenever we happen to bump into each other at Pasadena stadium (in Adelaide, South Australia) about when we first met - I point at the spot near the stairs going onto court 2 where I first shook his and his parent’s hands and proceeded to have a long chat about his basketball future and I tell him “that spot is where it all started for you”, he laughs, probably because it is not necessarily true. However, it is certainly those kinds of moments that you look back on later, that ended up being a pivotal moment for kids like Brent, his family and in this case the Central Districts Lions program.
Pictured: Brent concentrating on his free throws for SA Country. It was soon after this pic was taken that that Pasadena meeting took place.
Ironically Brent, his parents and I met at that same spot about 3 yrs later to review his goals and plans for the future and he came up with this plan for the coming years.
