Mother and Son's Basketball BondSubmitted: March 28, 2017
(Sarah N'Tula): " Manny is my only child. Time is important. That's what he thrives on is just time with me"
The mother and son are in the gym together, as one team.
(Sarah): "A couple years ago at K-Dub, a man came up one time and joked, "oh Manny you're mom has put in a lot of hours. You're going to have to buy her house one day."
(Sarah): "He had his first dunk at 14 as a freshman. And I missed it. I felt so awful."
That's about all she's missed. Playing basketball can be exhausting. For every Manny shot, Sarah is there to chase it down.
(Sarah) "There was time we would go 2 or 3 times a day."
The rule goes, it takes ten-thousand hours to master something. If that goes for shots, Manny and Sarah are on their way.
(Aaron):"How many do you think you've put up, lifetime, you and your mother."
All ten-thousand paying off. Manny, a Senior leader on the Trojans championship team.
SOT (Sarah): "Its been a blast. Makes we want to cry thinking about it ending."
