“He and I have been a part of over 70 games together. Somebody told me we’re 66-5 when he’s in our uniform,” Peery said. “We definitely shared some tears (Tuesday) night. He and I have been through a lot together. It breaks my heart to see him not be able to play.”
The positive news is that the outpatient surgery will allow for Bobbitt to return to his team’s side for the remainder of the national tournament. While he can no longer suit up, Bobbitt will be on the sidelines to lend all the moral support he can to his Indian Hills basketball family just three wins away from accomplishing a national championship dream.
“We’re going to help get Rod through this and we’re going to have him there cheering for us,” Peery said. “He’ll be a big part of our motivation throughout the rest of this tournament. They’ll want to win for him. They’ll want to treat it like nothing ever happened.”
Rod’s in our prayers. We want the best for him. He wants the best for us,” Posley added. “Unfortunately, he can’t move forward on the court with us, but I know he wants us to keep playing Warrior basketball and do what we do best.”
