Chase Herring is squaring up to shoot.

The game is on the line, the score is tied, time is running out, you get the ball and step back. You make the last shot that wins the game for your team. This is a feeling that Chase Herring,7th grade feels all the time when playing his favorite game… basketball. Chase Herring is a basketball player who plays on the travel team called the Sharks. Also, in the summer he plays on his dad’s team plays in Pensacola at Malcom Young and other basketball courts. Chase has a basketball goal in his front yard that he uses every day. Any chance he gets to shoot hoops, he takes. Chase loves the game more than anything else; he loves the feeling of driving to the goal and making a layup and loves the sound of the ball going smoothly through the net.

Lawson Messer,7th grade says, “Chase Herring is an amazing player and person. He is always nice and can drain.”  The favorite shot he likes to take is from the outside; he likes to make the threes. His best moment was in 2017 when in a game he scored a total of 18 points. When Chase is not playing basketball, he plays soccer at the rec center. He made it on the A team and has been playing for a long time. For a while he played baseball which was played at the local rec center. For two years he also played travel baseball for a team called UTA (which now doesn’t have a baseball team any more). The first year he played on UTA he won the World Series and the State Championship.

Chase Herring play on the Sharks 13U team, their practice goes like this: They come in and shoot around until practice starts. Then when practice starts, they do layup lines. Then they get into a line and shoot free throws. After that they run suicides. Then they do passing drills. They take a break and do free shots. When they come back from free shots, they run more suicides. To wrap up the practice they do an Inter-Squad scrimmage.

One of the GBMS players that play with Chase, Hutson Rowe, 6th grade agrees with Lawson and said, “Chase in an awesome person and an even better basketball player. He is the best dribbler I have seen in a long time.”

 There are many other players that also agree with Hutson and Lawson, Ryan Tracey,7th grade said, “He’s really fast and good at basketball. He has an incredible shot.” 

 Zennon Patrick,7th grade, “He’s fast and very aggressive.”
