Class Writing Assignment ... by Jeremiah Oatsvall

I like to play basketball, it is so fun,
My name is JO and I'm the coach's son.
The object of the game is to get the ball in the hoop,
My favorite play is the "alley-oop." 
You can go between the legs, IN or OUT, 
In this sport you can not POUT. 
You better be ready for the full court press,
Team 147 is a full court mess. 
You can bring one, you can em' bring all, just bring the whole team, 
If you can think you can beat us, that is a dream.
Our team is supreme, it can't be beat,
We always face the Alabama Elite.
We're battle tested, we do our best, 
We're from the south, but can beat anyone from the West.
When the season is over and the final buzzer ends, 
We may split up, but our friendship never BENDS.
On Team 147, basketball was our CHOICE, 
But on and off the court we give the ORPHANS A VOICE.

Team 147 !!! Speaking up for the VOICELESS ... I love these precious guys !!! Mama O is super proud of how they act on and off the court !!! The way they love on all the littles shows so much about their hearts ... Their friendship has a pureness about it and I pray they always give their talents to the LORD and use them to his glory !!!
