A passion is an intense desire or enthusiasm for something. People can be passionate about grades, a hobbie and much more. The seniors of our high school basketball team recently had their senior night, where they walked down the gym floor for the very last time before playing their last home game ever. They walked down the court with their loved ones while a recorded speech played as they walked. 

In the speeches, they thanked their coaches and elaborated on how basketball had affected their life. Many smiles were shown and the team laughed while inside jokes were said in the recordings. Unfortunately, their last home game wasn’t a win, but they fought hard and had fun while playing their last game. 

Senior Jayden Azar was a big part of the team and was like a brother to all of his teammates. He led the team to many victories throughout his four years of playing basketball. Since it was his last year playing basketball for the school, he has made many memories. 

Azar made many three pointers during this game. I can still hear the announcer say “Azar for the three”

“It was fun, at times difficult, but I enjoyed going on bus rides with my friends and my teammates. It was a good year,” says Azar.

The team played to the best of their ability and they lost a few players as they went on with the season. The sport has made a lasting impact on his life. “It has helped me create bonds in the four years of high school just getting to know people better and making friends,” said Azar. As said before, they made a team a family. 

The boys may not have had the best season by score but they all agreed that their season resulted in an amazing senior year.
