Number 12 moves swiftly across the court, dribbling the ball in speed, and swishes yet another ball into the net.
Who is “Number 12”? He is none other than Da’Mareyae Oliver.
Oliver is a captain and a senior on the varsity basketball team and has been playing basketball for a while. Throughout his time on the team, Oliver has worked hard to sharpen his skills in basketball. He has honed in on four key strengths: scoring, leadership, defense, and passing. Although he is already a great player, Oliver does not stop working hard to become even better.
Oliver admitted that during one of his games, he could have worked on having better control during a game to bring up his average score by 17 points during a game. Paying attention to his moves on the court and analyzing each move to see how he could become better has led him to become a better player. In the first game of the season, which was against Strawberry Crest, Oliver played on his strengths of shooting and passing, as well as being a good team player. The game took place on Nov. 27.
The basketball season will run until the end of January, and the district game will be on Jan. 25. This gives Oliver time to keep on working to meet his goals, one game at a time. Oliver expressed that one of his main goals for this season as a senior is to make it to the state level competition. Although the journey there is not easy, it is not impossible. Working together with his team through the entire season, Oliver will be able to achieve his dream.
Oliver’s dreams do not end in high school. Although he is undecided about which college to attend, Oliver hopes to continue his basketball career in college. In the long term, Oliver aims to become a sports physician, a fitting career, given his sports background.
