Laurel High School's senior night just happened to fall on team manager Seth Kraft's 18th birthday...everyone had to know that the team would do something special for the 4'1" senior.
According to reports, Kraft is a regular on-court participant in practice and takes pride in playing solid defense and his great passing skills. Over the weekend he had a chance to do a lot more.
“I will steal the ball if I have the chance. I’m not going to take it easy on them. It’ll be great if I score, but it’s OK if I don’t. I’ll be successful tonight if I make an impact, even a small one.”
An impact is exactly what he left. This Montana high school will remember this night for a long time.
Horrible defense by #21 on the opposing team...and #2 had a golden opportunity to swat that shot away from behind.
We see this type of thing a lot in high school sports. It is always awesome when it happens, but just once I would like to see some opposing player go "Mutumbo". Just wag that finger right in his face after cramming the shot right back in his face.
Seth Kraft likes good defense...he would appreciate the sentiment.
