I have, to be honest, I don't really watch many sports on television.  However, when the CATS play my house is buzzing with loud yells, jumping up and down, and several other emotions, and that is just from my husband, Joe.  While watching the game last night he shared with me that two players from Owensboro were playing for Mississippi State.  I had to tune in and watch!

Aric Holman, former Owensboro High School standout, now plays forward for Mississippi State.  I remember watching this young man play ball at Dugan Best Recreation Center when I worked for the Parks Department.

Eli Wright, former Apollo High School standout, can also be found putting in his time and hard work on the court for Mississippi State as a guard.

Both young men get their fair share of time on the court for Mississippi.  And we are super proud of their dedication and determination.  WAY TO GO GUYS!
