    Wow! Nick was fun to watch when he got in during the season. He’s a silky and crafty player with a great touch and excellent skill for his height. He will definitely prove to be a smooth basketball star! Congratulations Nick and remember, soccer is the pathway to success, on and off the pitch (and in this case on to the court!).

    Truly Inspired,
    Rich
