Best Memories of Playing with the Middlesex Magic

I’ve been around the Middlesex Magic program for as long as I can remember. From being my brother’s “ball girl” to starting up a girls’ program my sophomore year of high school. There are so many memories: having Coach Crotty Sr. trust me to do the book/clock at such a young age, playing for my father, on court victories and off court fun. I think my proudest moment of being a Magic player was being able to wear the Middlesex Magic uniform. I always looked up to my brother’s teams and always wanted to play on a Magic team.

 

How the Middlesex Magic Helped you the most

Growing up, I was always allowed to jump into Magic team drills for my brother’s team, and I know for a fact this helped shape the player I became. The Middlesex Magic taught me to be a tough competitor on and off the court. I still remember all of Big Mike’s pregame speeches. He always preached to be tough and competitive, but he always made sure that you would have a passion and love for the game. He always wanted his players/coaches to be the best people they could be.  I took the passion and love for the game that Big Mike had to heart and idolized the man he was. He helped me realize that if you put your mind to anything you want to do, you can do it. Now at this point in my life I am still learning how to grow as a person but not a player anymore, I am learning how to grow as a coach. Mike Jr. has carried the memory of his father on through the Middlesex Magic program and I am beyond happy to still be involved. My junior year of college Mike Jr. and Larry Hurley called me and asked me to become a coach for the girls program. I always preach that I want the girls to work hard, have fun and get better, like Big Mike taught me and how Mike Jr. is still preaching. Without the Middlesex Magic program I would never have had the chance to become a Varsity Head Basketball coach at the age of 23. The Middlesex Magic shaped me to be the basketball player I was, the woman I am and are growing to be, and the coach I am today.
