Cody was such a "team player" for the boys' basketball program. He played his 7th grade year but was unable to play as an 8th grader due to an accident he had before school started that year. It was at that time that Cody was asked to be a team manager which he did with the utmost respect and character! He then continued on with the program last year as a freshman helping all three teams - the freshmen, the JV, and the varsity. He was so dedicated and energetic. His spirit was contagious! Just last week, he was asking how he could help prepare for the up-coming season and started prepping the locker room on his own time after school. This young man, and the whole family, will be missed at Hopewell-Loudon!
