Springfield State Journal Register, Springfield, Illinois, 19 January 2007, Former home-schooler Garner passes basketball Tri-out
“He showed up with J.J. during an open gym last summer,” Dilley said of Garner. “J.J. basically said, ‘Coach, this is Isaac, and he wants to come to school here this year.’
“I’m like, ‘Well, all right.’ Then I watched him play for a few minutes, and I’m thinking, ‘Oooh! This kid can play.’”
So the 17-year-old Garner is making the most of his first and only season of high school basketball. He was home-schooled until this school year, when his parents, Kevin and Angel Garner, gave the OK for Isaac to enroll at Tri-City. His age makes him a senior in terms of sports eligibility.
I’m seriously considering a category such as “C’mon, people, we’re not ALIENS!”
