The whistle blew and the game began, a short time later the UrbanPromise 10U Boys basketball team scored first. It was a lead they held onto for the whole game to win their first playoff game 28-21.
But, it isn’t the score the keeps these boys in the lead, it is their coach – Joel Orr. Each day at Camp Hope he invests his life to give these kids a chance to get in the lead in life. Lessons on and off the court of playing fair, respecting those around you, doing your best and honoring God are woven continually into life.
Basketball was a new venture for UrbanPromise this year. Luke Orr coached the 16U team, with similar lessons taught. We are grateful for the chance to get these boys in the lead.
