Baldwin freshman athlete eager to start



BALDWIN - Baldwin's Jamison Hunter will be a freshman this school year and is working on getting in as much basketball time as possible.

It's why he's been participating in the Future Stars Become Legendary Saturday afternoon league at Hollister Park. He's been attending for five weeks and said the practices have been helpful.

Local youngsters have been limited in what they can do since the COVID-10 pandemic started in March.

Youngsters haven't been able to get into school gyms yet. Hunter and his teammates continue to work on fundamentals and play in the FSBL program at Hollister.

Hunter has been playing basketball five years. He's been in the program five months. He's been trying to engage in any outdoor activities as much as possible.

Hunter also plays football at Baldwin and is waiting for practices to begin in that sport.

His favorite sport? Whichever one he's playing, Hunter said.

Football practices right now are scheduled to begin on Aug. 10. But the MHSAA has said it will announce the fall schedule sometime next weekly or shortly afterwards.
