"Play your hardest and give it all you've got and till the end of the game... in my book you'll be winners!"
(Coach Norman Dale, Hoosiers. 1986)
Click to see Brent hit the free throw to finish a three point play.
Last night was Wood River High School's first Varsity basketball game of the season. The game was at Hillcrest High School in Idaho Falls. Wearing number 15 and making his Wood River Varsity debut was Brent Hope III.
Wood River lost but Brent played very well hitting 2 three pointers and shot 3 for 3 from the free throw line. He finished with 11 points.
From a historical perspective, my first varsity start was in Idaho Falls against the Bonneville Bees. Brent is the 3rd generation of Hope's playing varsity basketball in Idaho. Clive Brent Hope Sr (Sugar-Salem), Clive Brent Hope jr (South Fremont), and finally Clive Brent Hope III (Wood River).
With us at the game last night was my good brother Jeremy and my dear high school friend Ken Moeller. Kenny is a highly successful teacher in Idaho Falls and everyone knew him at the game.
