Red River’s Basketball Season Comes to a Close

Your Bulldogs made it to the Regionals in the basketball playoffs.  They went to Rayville on Tuesday and were defeated 81 to 60.

The school posted a photo of graduating seniors on the team and commented, “But the journey is not over for these gentlemen.  They have represented Red River well and now they will continue school and graduate.   Some will go to college earn a degree and play sports, some will go to vocational school and enter the work force.  Whatever they do, they will forever be Bulldogs  and we wish them all the best in the years to come.”

Coach Dadrian Harris spoke highly of the team and the effort they put in this season.  He said, “Well, my 1st official year as head coach has come to an end. If I could change anything about this season, I would only change the outcome of the game. All year we faced challenge after challenge after challenge. Sometimes we won the challenge and others we loss. Overall, we grew. We grew on the court and in life. The X’s and O’s don’t always get you where you want to go but character does. The process was rugged and also pleasing because I watched young boys grow into young men.”

Harris said, “The destination was cut short, but it’s the journey that makes you. Throughout the journey we learned to work hard, prepare for everything, be accountable, make no excuses, stand firm in our beliefs, respond well to adversity, fight until the end, and trust the process. The buy-in to those things came at a later time, but it happened at the right time. As their coach for life and not just the 4 year high school career, I can assure that those qualities will be with them forever.

“To my seniors, I love each of you and would do anything for you. My office, my number, my house, and my gym is always open to you 24/7. I appreciate your hard-work, dedication, and commitment to this team. I pray that God only brings you success in your future endeavors.”
