Austin, my 15-year-old grandson, plays high school basketball. This year, because his family moved from Fayetteville, Georgia, to Wilmington, North Carolina, he had the relatively rare opportunity of playing at two different high schools during the same season. He faced two try-outs, integrated with two groups of teammates and experienced two very different coaching styles. The change from Whitewater High School in Fayetteville to Hoggard High School in Wilmington wasn’t easy for Austin but basketball certainly helped with the transition.
