Congratulations to Davante and his family - this young person has worked tirelessly to achieve this level of success. I wish him all the best. It was a thrill to watch him play through CCS titles all the way to the California State Championship game in LA. Proud to be a Viking right now - Kindel Launer, Palo Alto HIgh School.
