That's the little piece that the local ABC affiliate did on my squad getting their shoes and all that.

Nice.
Russell Westbrook is destroying fashion sense for our youth.

That's awesome man. The kids seem really humble and did a great job on camera. You're doing great work.

Ya, one of my kids tried to go into his interview on ABC with those retarded glasses with no lenses on. The reporter looked befuddled and poked a curious finger at them to figure out what the f**k they were and what they were for. I was dying laughing. His aunt was there and made him take them off. (sidenote: dealing with sassy black women from the hood is one of the more...interesting...parts of this job. )

EDIT: I also recently found out that Westbrook's mom actually retired from working at my school 3 years ago. We're gonna see if he can help out.

Thank you very much, sac. My kids are wonderful. They're far from perfect, but at the end of the day they just want someone that gives a s**t about them, and if nothing else I want to provide them that. It's really amazing how much impact just that little thing has on them. We've seen a nice bump in the GPAs across the team this year, most of the seniors look like they'll be going to college on at least a partial (academic) scholarship, and I even have one kid who's very close to being accepted to West Point. (fingers crossed) But I'm even prouder of the kids that were in danger of dropping out that are passing their classes, getting credits, etc. Those are generally the ones with the most f**ked up lives.

If basketball provides the incentive to keep their grades up and graduate on time, awesome.
Hey, I noticed the school was called a learning center, and had grades from elementary all the way up through high school. Is this an alternative to your standard public school system, or is this a school for at risk youths? Just curious. Thanks.

It was initially a K-8, and the High School portion was added on in the 70's. (I think) While it is a public school, the set up is kind of similar to a charter school once you get to HS. The kids can choose from one of three academies...Technology, Health, or Finance. They get their regular HS education, and then they have 1 or 2 classes per semester that are exclusive to their academy.

That sort of focus early on looks good on college apps if a Health Academy student wants to get into nursing, a Finance Academy student wants to get Business Degree, etc. Although in my experience it's a lot better in theory than in practice.

AWESOME!
You're like a real life Jackie Moon, Pete!
The kids at the school (not basketball affiliated) have a Foshay Memes page, and whoever runs it is pretty f**king funny. This is a poignant statement on the trials of tribulations of going to school in the hood.

Did all these movies take place in LA? I think Tom Berenger's The Substitute was set in Miami, so I left it off.
Coach Carter was in Richmond, CA. Which is next to Oakland.
