VEAZIE – With remote learning in place kids don’t really have much to do these days other than school and video games.
Two Bangor High School basketball players have decided to do something a little different with their time.
“The minute we came down here we just noticed it was terrible and we were like we should just fix this up,” Bangor boys basketball guard, Cabryn Streams, said.
For the last three weeks, Bangor basketball players, Parker Noyes and Cabryn Streams, have turned the overgrown sandlot into a vibrant blacktop court.
“We just went to Home Depot and saw all the colors and we were just like man let’s make it poppin,” Noyes said.
With lines down and a sideline bench on the way, neighborhood kids have flocked to play.
“It’s great to see I haven’t seen anyone on this court in a while and now that we’re on it and got this done I’ve seen people on it everyday,” Streams said.
The court is open to everyone and the two have grand ideas to further help the community.
“We got a bunch of guys down here we started playing 5 vs. 5, 4 vs. 4 and we were like man this would be a great idea get a bunch of people down put the money to a good cause like Alzheimer’s or cancer research and we ended up getting some sponsors from people they thought it was a great idea so if we get that going in the summer I think it would be a great idea,” Noyes said.
Noyes and Streams did seek permission from the town before working on the courts. They hope to have more news about the prospective league soon and hope to start play in late June.
