A.B.S. Hard Rock Ballers Looks to Defend Big Ballers Tournament Title in Chetumal

A.B.S. Hard Rock Ballers Under-Fifteen and Under-Seventeen Basketball teams are in need of your assistance to make it to the Big Ballers Tournament in Chetumal this weekend. The Antelope Street Extension youth teams are looking to defend their Big Ballers Tournament championship titles, but the teams have not quite gathered all the funds to cover transportation costs. Linbert Moody, the Manager and Coach of the teams have been working tirelessly to develop the skills of his players by exposing them to competitions outside of Belize. We spoke with him, as well as the Captain of his under- seventeen team, sixteen-year-old Devin Moody.

“All my brothers are basketball players so from small I grow around ball. My dad always tell me a story from before I was born he said I was going to be a basketball player and so said so done, I really love the game. Being the captain is also you have to be vocal talkative and forward.  I really love being a role model to younger folks so, that pushes me everyday to be someone great in my community.”

“How important is it for the young men you play with to have such a role model?”

Devin Moody

“It is very important because some of them came from nothing, so to be around me I just try to motivate them every day.”
