“Players under pressure revert back to their deeply held habits”. In a big game, against tough defense you will see what type of player you are. You will see what your habits are. Every time I step into a gym almost every athlete looks the same; a little out of control, a little weak with the ball, makes a few too many mistakes, and hardly ever has a plan.
This is the touching story of two members of our PGC family. Ieshia Small is a PGC grad who is one of the top high school players in the nation. Coach Kimberly Davis Powell is a long-time PGC supporter who runs one of the top Nike girls basketball programs in the country. This is a story of tragic loss and adversity, but also a story of love & hope.
