This past weekend we were at New Mexico watching the state tournament. Our Sole purpose for going was to find players who ran the walk and give them the “go all out be all in award”.
We were happy to see that there were several players that could have won this award in each division, and although it made the decision hard on our end, we were pleased to see so many players giving all that they had for their respective teams.
Ben Romero- Senior, Los Lunas HS.
Ben Romero fell short on his goal this year with the Los Lunas Tigers, but one thing he didn’t fall short on was his efforts on attaining his ultimate goal. Ben is a RUN THE WALK player who went all out this year for his team. While we watched Ben go up and down the court, it dawned on us that there was never a play that we felt he took off. Now if that’s not an example of running the walk, I don’t know what is. The defense displayed was a thing if beauty. Help side, closing out, attempted charges, being in the passing lane; too only mention a few. Ben never stopped striving for perfection during the game.
