SIDELINE OBSERVATIONS: A belated Christmas wish

Published: Monday, December 30, 2013 at 10:17 AM.

I would give first-year Bulldog boys basketball coach Greg Watson a strong showing in a tough district this year.

I would give Crestview basketball star Ronnie Baylark the college of his dreams, where he could continue his playing career.

I would give former Crestview High School baseball star Dakota Dean, who is now a freshman at Louisiana State, all the success his older brother, Blake, had while playing for the Tigers.

I would give former Baker basketball star Chad Donley and his Liberty University teammates another opportunity to play in the NCAA tournament.

If I could, I would give former Laurel Hill basketball star Jeff Reese a healthy heart so he could again play the game he loves. I would give Jeff's older brother, Brad, continued success playing basketball in Europe. I really would love to give Brad the gift of playing in the National Basketball Association.

Legend has it that Santa's gift bag is bottomless so he doesn't have to worry about running out of space as he takes gifts to little boys and girls around the world.

Since I'm not Santa, and my space is limited, I only have a couple of more gifts I would like to give.
