This is why we love high school, college and other amateur sports. Most of the kids playing in this weekend’s Alabama High School State Basketball Championship Tournament won’t be going on to play college basketball. Some will, but most will hang up their sneakers after the final horn blows.
Some, like Oneonta’s Destiney Elliott, will hang them up as champions and that’s when the exuberance of winning it all shows.
