Kentucky School for the Deaf bridging the gap with basketball
02/14/2016 11:00 AM
The Kentucky School for the Deaf Boys’ Basketball Team has a tougher road to travel than other schools in the commonwealth. The school only plays and practices during the week as many of the school’s students live in different parts of the state. That fact also makes it difficult for the team to practice together and for players to develop their skills during the summer. KSD also doesn’t have a feeder school that offers basketball at the middle school level, so many of t he KSD players are new to the sport when they join the team.
Despite those disadvantages, the KSD boys are above .500 this season and playing some of their best basketball against other deaf schools and public schools alike. We talked with the team to find out how their love for the game is bringing them new experiences and shaping them as young men.
