Duke Candidates 2021 Formal Pics 01.31.21

It's that time of year again, time to share this school  year's "formal" Duke Candidate pics. The 5 and me, spent a couple hours together out at WHS Sunday afternoon and we came  up with about 40 pics or so, some will make ya laugh. It's a fine group of young men. We cruised around the insides of WHS for some of the pics, the rest were staged in the KWHS Studio, using the 9 x 15 green screen as a backdrop. Of course, the backgrounds are no longer green. 

Congratulations again to this year's candidates:

VARSITY / JV BOYS Sink the Vikings! Hinshaw 31 pts!

HERE vs Winfield HS
Friday, January 29, 2021

KaBam! The Varsity and JV Basketball Boys took care of business Friday evening here at home vs Winfield. Banks Hinshaw lit it up in the Varsity game, scoring 31 pts! (pretty sure this is his career high).

24 of Hinshaw's 31 pts came from "8" treys / a new record! The former record of "7", held by Bank's coach, Joe Newman. Awesome job Banks.

In JV game, Cope Henry pumped in 17 for the cause.

Congratulations Payton – you have certainly excelled at your chosen sport. We will miss you and wish you the best in the years to come, on and off the course. GOOD LUCK @ DODGE!!
