It just shows how precious time really is.
Last year, after Batts put on a show against Berwick at home, Berwick's Hall of Fame coach, George Curry, when told Batts was only a ninth grader said, "He's just a freshman? Wow! He's going to be a great player here for four years."
If everything goes well, maybe he can at least have half of that time.
