The RoadRunners are at it again. The Monroe-based AAU Summer basketball team will participate in a series in upcoming national tournaments. This squad, once at 10 players, has grown to 34 as of this season.
“I believe it’s going to be tough, ” says Travone Varner. “But, I’m going to enjoy it, because we’re ready. We like competition.”
“This is my first year playing AAU, ” says Ruston Bearcat, Jackson Pilgreen. “I’ve always been in baseball. But, they’ve all been so welcoming. Taught me so much, just about basketball.”
“I mean it’s great, ” says Neville Tiger, Patrick McCraney. “We’ve been playing together since our seventh grade year. And, then we’ve got new people like [Jackson Pilgreen]. So, it’s getting better and better each time.”
“It’s a brotherhood over here, ” says Caleb Vaughn. “We do anything for each other. We have each others’ backs every tournament we go to.”
