Quarter 3, Blog 2

Kyle Weber
The Assist
Neil Swidey
pgs. 67-90

An external conflict in my story is the fact that Jason White lives in the projects and has a tough time staying on the right track. His father was not in the picture for a while. That took a major toll on him. He started to get into trouble and not doing well on the court. Then his father came back and, while it took awhile, Jason fell back into a comfort zone because he knew he was lucky. Lucky to be one of the few guys on the team whose dad showed up to them games. An internal conflict is the conflict that the coach has with himself. He always questions if he will be able to make a difference in the lives of his players. His life is completely devoted to basketball, seeing how he doesn't have a family. He tries so hard to get his players to college. He will shuffle them to school after school, trying to break through their tough outer shell.

  1. It seems like a pretty hard situation to be in. What would you do Kyle?
