    Wise has a lot of friends that are both JM Rockets and some that are not, he looks forward to playing against them and hopefully quenching the win against them as well. During the games against his friends he hopes he can accomplish his goal of scoring at least 10 points a game.

    “Lettering to me is a huge accomplishment,” Wise said. “I know if I can obtain this both my family and I would be so proud. It would help me show myself that I am not a bad basketball player, but that I am an awesome one.”

    Game day is the best day in Wise’s eyes, waking up for school is not just waking up for school anymore, it is time to show off his skills.

After the long hours of practice, running, and becoming closer with his team mates he can finally show off everything he’s got.

    “Every time we have a game it’s like the air in the school is better,” said Wise. “All my teammates are happy and everyone is telling us good luck and asking questions. I always give my best in every game and hope I can provide a good show for my friends and family. Also while kicking butt and winning games,” added Wise.
