Taking Shots for Seniors

Written and Media by Brianna Anderson.


With your heart pounding in your chest, there are five seconds to go in the last quarter and you are down by one. All of a sudden, your teammate passes you the ball and you take the shot hoping that all the years of hard work will pay off. Memories begin to fly through your head as you watch the ball float through the air towards the basket. For the Greenville College Basketball team, nine seniors want to be that guy to take that shot. For seniors DeAndre Brown, Moe Smith, Shane Smith, Richard Clemons, Kenny Greene, Peace Young, Brian Ehresman, Josh Herrick, and Michael Hohm, this is their last shot for college basketball.
