Much like Jeremy Lin and Tim Tebow, the West Charlotte Lions have been calling on a ‘Higher Power’ this basketball season and so far (25-5) says ‘no busy signals’, help has been on the way!
from Langston Wertz Jr. at The Charlotte Observer and www.charlotteobserver.com:
Ten minutes after Friday’s 59-55 overtime win at South Mecklenburg, the best high school game Langston Wertz Jr. says that he has seen in five years, the West Charlotte Lions glided into the Sabres’ visitors’ locker room, got dressed and then they gathered in a circle.
All the players and coaches locked arms and everybody bowed their heads.
Next, coach Baronton Terry led a 2-minute, 23-second prayer, where he sounded every bit the part of an old Baptist preacher, asking God to watch over his team, to bring it closer, to not let any outside influences harm what is the team’s ultimate goal: a repeat 4A state title.
