A parent sent this picture to me earlier this week and I thought it was worth sharing. This is the seventh grade Emerald City Basketball Academy (ECBA) AAU team that went to nationals in 2009 in Memphis. The only player on the team that is not participating in the state tournament this week is Josh Martin of Bothell, which made it to the round of 16. You can match up the names of the kids with the picture using the paragraph below.
Back row (L-R): Chase Young (coach), Jason Todd (Jackson), Jack Walton (Bellevue), Josh Martin, Addison McIrvin (Issaquah), Cory Nevin (Issaquah). Front row: Brian Watson (Issaquah), Jeff Staudacher (Lake Washington), Sam Dowd (Gonzaga Prep), Kyle Foreman (Bellevue), Dan Kingma (Jackson), Connor Willgress (Jackson).
