Team: Hood Prospects & Co
Player: Anthony Otey
The second round of dodgeball began on Friday, May 17, and the Hood Prospects & Co won their game 3-0. Hood Prospects & Co received a bye in the first round and played a practice game on Monday, which they lost. Hood Prospects & Co learned from their mistakes, however, and dominated in the next round.
Senior Anthony Otey emerged as the star of the day as he shot down player after player throughout the game. Anthony’s dangerous offensive skills, in conjunction with great catching ability, proved to be a deadly combination that won him the Talon Dodgeball Player of the Day.
His opponents had no choice but to throw their bodies in multiple directions in hopes of remaining unscarred.
“I just go out there and play,” Anthony said, “My team is pretty good this year so I guess we’re just going to have to wait and see how far we go.”
Hood Prospects & Co will play again on Tuesday, May 21.
