    Norman Clarke is a person in the basketball community to be admired - I know I feel that way about him.

    Here's an article about he and his very amazing family. School and Family first, then basketball. What's not to like?

    In case anyone doesn't know who Norman is he is Julian Clarke's father and an all-time great in the history of Canadian basketball. Just read the article.

    Watch out for young Brody he is a very solid basketball player with a bright future in his own right. What makes me think he might be playing his high school basketball at Oakwood Collegiate?

    Just a wild guess- I suppose!

    The basketball community would be a whole lot stronger if everyone had these same priorities off the court!

    Have to agree with u Coach C. Norm is a stand up guy. Has a lot to offer and continues to give back to a lot of kids, not just his own. I know the family well and Norm actually was one of the first guys that helped me with my game when I was a young buck. Him and Leon Bynoe. Nice article! Julian has had a fantastic year, and young Brody...mhe's one of my favourites at the age level I coach.
