Diary Of A Baller: Anthony "Champ" Mosely (Delaware) Entry #15

What's up world its your boy Champ coming to you with highlights from the last two weeks. The last couple of weeks have been good. In this diary the first thing I would like to do is give a shot out to my mom. “I Love you Mommy you are the best”. My mom is great and I appreciate all that she does for me and my siblings.

The good, I am pleased to announce that we met our goals as a middle school team to have a undefeated regular season 11-0 the first one in our coaches 9 year history at the school. We finished the season with victories over Dover Air Force Middle School and Providence Creek Academy. It makes me feel good to set a goal and achieve it, I am very happy that we accomplished a first in our schools recent history. The coach is happy as well.

We will be playing in a tournament this weekend called the Capital Classic that will give us two more games. We are scheduled to play our nemesis Smyrna Middle (9-2) and when we win we will play in the Championship game against the winner of the other match upp Moyer Academy (10-1) or Seaford Middle (9-2). The much anticipated match up is for us and Moyer to meet in the Championship game pitting Northern DE vs Southern DE. With the season coming to an end I am very pleased with our teams record of 11-0 with a 32 pt margin of victory and I am also pleased with my individual #'s finishing the season with a 23.4 pts per game average to go along with 5 rebounds, 5 assists, 3 steals, and 1 block per game.

With the season coming to an end soon I want to take this opportunity to give a shot out to all my teammates Shikeem, John, Lewis, Brandon, Nick, and Joe. It's been a great run guys and I wish all of you the best in your high school basketball careers. With middle school basketball coming to an end it is time for me to start focusing on my high school career and hitting the gym hard so that I can come right in and make a impact as a freshman. Speaking of High School I have decided that I am going to attend The Sanford School in DE. The school is one of the best academically and their philosophy of teaching is great for me. This will help me get prepared for college as the school has a 100% acceptance rate. On top of that I will have the opportunity to play for Coach Waterman who some consider a great coach and who I believe is a great coach and capable of training and teaching me how to be the best player I can be. I will also have the pleasure of practicing against some top D1 prospects Trevor Cooney and Deon Jones which obviously will make me better. Other than that all the snow over the last two weeks was fun at the beginning but got to be too much. I am glad to be back in school and able to get back in the gym. Well that's the life of an 8th grade basketball for the last two weeks check back next week for highlights from the Capital Classic.

Champ Out !!!!
