For this edition, I sat down with Trey Grimes, second-year varsity member and starter on the boys basketball team this year. “Yes this is my second year on varsity, however, I’ve been playing on the little tikes hoop since birth.”
Before Trey goes out to drain some threes, Trey expresses his favorite pump up music, “Yea I listen to everything before a game, but Adele is instrumental in my heavy rotation, she adds a nice, soothing intensity that can’t be matched anywhere else.” “Before a game, I like to joke around with my teammates, loosen the mood a bit. Especially with Reed Flynt, me and him have a good comedic moment before each game.
I asked Trey which NBA player he thought he most resembled the most and replied, “I’d have to say Kevin Durant, even though he kind of wimped out to join the warriors, he is still a 7 foot guard who can do anything on the floor.” Expecting to also say KD, I asked Trey what his favorite, non-team, shoe was, “I really like to play in Kobe’s, yea I know Kobe was extremely overrated, but his shoes are really nice.”
I next asked Trey to relive his favorite basketball memory over the years. “My favorite all-time memory was when Tom Vandertill, who graduated last year, tried to dunk in a real game when he could not even touch the net. Another memory relating to Vandertill was when he made a Hudl highlight tape of him sitting on the bench and handing his teammates water called, ‘Garbage time hero’.”
