Kiel Turpin, I told you to remember that name!

Exactly one year ago, I wrote a blog about our nephew Kiel Turpin.  He had just won MVP at the NJCAA national basketball tournament.  His college team won the final game and were national champs.  A once in a lifetime event. 

Not for our nephew!  Last night he won the MVP again and his team, The Lincoln Lynx, won the nationals again.  How about that folks!  The whole family down to 3rd and 4th cousins are bursting with pride.  This from a young man who barely could walk and chew gum 3 years ago.  He grew over 6 inches in a year and just couldn't control his body.  Well, now he can.

Kiel has 4 siblings, one older brother and three younger sisters.  One of his little sisters just had her 10th birthday.  He asked her what she wanted for her birthday.  Riley said she wanted another National Basketball title.  And what Riley wants Riley gets.

Next year we will watch Kiel play for Florida State.  Join us.
