This month’s student of the month is a well known 11th grade basketball player. He is number 24 on our varsity basketball team. Dallas Wood has been playing for the Spotsylvania basketball team since freshman year. He won play of the game twice in his three years of playing for the team.  He’s been playing basketball every since he was a little kid. Dallas started playing basketball because his dad played. His dad,  Allen Iverson, and Kobe Bryant inspire him on a daily basis to play. He always enjoyed playing as a little kid, he says it’s been his passion ever since. Dallas is deciding to go to college majoring in computer sciences, while playing basketball for the college. He doesn’t have a specific college in mind, he willing to go to the best college that wants him. “Dallas is a hard worker, and never gives up,” says one of the other players. We wish Dallas a good luck for the rest of the year, next year, and anything further pursuing basketball.
