Alabama sports

Yes, we are going to play basketball games this year. We may play 6-7
games and an area tournament in February.

First bb game: Saturday, January 23

Track is still on

Oklahoma boys’ basketball

We didn’t even have basketball practices until last Sunday after we got
cleared from covid and returned to OSD.  We had one practice left before
the game started.
I knew my players were not ever ready.  Luckly,  I already gave them my
instructions at home exercises.   But overall, not bad for the first game.
We played with
Ryan High School last night.  Here was our result:

Ryan – 67
OSD – 49

Record: 0-1

Next game:  We will play our rival Mill Creek High School tonight.

USA SOFTBALL ELITE UMPIRE MICHAEL ELKINS SHARES HIS LIFE JOURNEY TO
BECOMING A MEMBER OF THE USA SOFTBALL UMPIRE PROGRAM

story as abbreviated

I am Michael Elkins!  I am a USA Softball Elite Umpire!

At the age of two I got a serious ear infection that caused my hearing to
be diagnosed as legally deaf.

I was introduced to USA Softball and started traveling out of state
to work tournaments. It was then that I found out the potential of what
USA Softball umpiring could offer me and how it could help me grow.
