I know you’ve heard talk before about people being a natural born athlete. Some people just don’t have to work hard at it. They can pick up any kind of ball or racket or glove, and after a quick lesson and a few throws, kicks or swings, they’ve got it. Christian is one of ‘those’.
He loves basketball, as you will see below, but surprisingly to me, he said soccer is one of his favorite sports to play. He has only been playing a few years, but he’s hoping to be able to play in college! Let me just say, also, that although he loves sports, his academics are his main focus. Christian plans to attend Harding University in the fall. He has some big plans for his future, and I must say, after meeting his mama, I can see where he gets his inspiration.
I can’t make you wait any longer to see these….
Here are Christian’s favorites:
Christian Tatum, Star City High School Class of ’20
I love it in life when things come full circle. Unknowingly, this happened for me with Alex. She was chosen as a member of my 2020 Street Team, so when we met at her meeting to plan out her sessions, I found out just who she was!
Delta had a wonderful principal when I was in school by the name of Miles Lowe. His wife, Mrs. Peggy, was our school counselor. There wasn’t a basketball game that I remember going to that he wasn’t there. He was a great example of someone who loved their job and their school. He was stern, but he was also forgiving. Mrs. Peggy was wonderful as well and was always there to help. She always had a smile on her face! She suddenly passed not long after I graduated high school, and it was a loss we all felt. I often wondered how Mr. Lowe was doing since I haven’t seen him in several years.
At this meeting, I found out that Alex is his granddaughter! I can’t tell you how excited I was to hear this, and to be able to catch up with them on how he was doing now. Everything made sense once I found out, because Alex is a lot like them the more I get to know her. She was blessed with wonderful parents, but even more so with wonderful grandparents (on both sides!)
Alex chose to do our two season senior package, which included a full summer session and a full fall session. They were both so much fun!! Wait until you see her grandfathers car that makes an appearance in her fall session….just wow!
She probably gets tired of hearing this from me, but I always tell her how gorgeous her skin is. Those freckles!! Gosh, I pray she never wears anything to cover them up!
Here are favorites from both of Alex’s sessions ❤
