Hally’s Favorite Things
Basketball was probably born into Hally as she was born during the NCAA tournament and attended her brother’s basketball game with her dad as the coach when she was less than a week old. By the time she was five, Hally was dribbling on the sidelines and passing the ball with her friend during her brother’s practices. She asked each fall when basketball season began, “When will Daddy be my coach?” Finally in third grade her dream came true and not only did Daddy become her coach but her good friend was able to be on her team too! She officially became part of Team Wolfpack. In January of 2014 Hally had the opportunity to go to a Harlem Globetrotters game, got her basketball signed, and began dreaming of playing at KSU, being on an Olympic team, and maybe someday even coaching. In May of 2014 Hally made a chart for herself with a goal of making 1,000 baskets. She would practice in her driveway every day, rain or shine, night or day. Her dad and brother had even made her an official half-court basketball court in the barn at the family farm so she could practice there.
