Going to Christ School was one of the best decisions of my life. At first, it was an adjustment being so far from home. But boarding school allowed me to focus on academics, basketball, and growing as a young man. It brought Miles and me closer together (and Marshall, who joined us a couple years later). We had great teachers and friends and had interesting things to do all the time. There were around 220 boys at the school from all over the world; I had roommates from Germany, South Korea, and the Bahamas. It was a privilege to develop relationships with classmates who had so many diverse interests and backgrounds.
And of course, we had basketball. In my three years with the Christ School “Greenies,” we won three state championships. We had a very talented team and it was especially rewarding to be part of a group that cared about achieving success together. We didn’t pay attention to individual stats in high school. We were about winning championships. I’m proud of what we accomplished, but I think what I’m most proud of is what my classmates have done since we graduated — it seems like everyone moved on to bigger and better things. No matter how far we’ve traveled, however, we always pick up right where we left off whenever we see each other again.
