Re: “Lincoln’s top basketball player transfers to Rainier Beach,” (TNT, 9/25).
Why do so many high school players and coaches think that transferring to another school to play ball is a guarantee to enter college and the professional draft? I wonder how many prima-donna players even graduate from college.
What has happened to commitment, dedication and loyalty to their present school, or appreciation to counsel and teach the young?
A while back, three outstanding basketball players chose to remain at Spanaway Lake High School to build the program, teach and encourage the players. Now, that’s dedication!
Never miss a local story.
Leaving to attend another high school is nothing but self-indulgence. I don’t think this decision is much of an example to leave for future players.
