The Clippers opened their season Saturday afternoon with a 95-53 win over Archbishop Curley. Price, who was named All-Metro co-Player of the Year in his sophomore year, was caught up in the excitement of returning to Clipper Nation. Coming off a torn meniscus during the offseason, he admitted to nerves, but didn’t show any.
Playing the first three quarters, he came away with a double double — something that was a norm in his previous days at Patterson — scoring 27 points and adding 11 assists.
Price shared his thoughts on his first game back with Varsity Letters and here’s what he had to say:
“Going into the game I was very anxious, I was nervous and had a lot to prove. I knew coming into the game I had a lot to prove especially from not playing for seven months. I woke up very early this morning , around 7, and just relaxed and ate a good breakfast. Got to the school and just tried to stay focused and the only thing on my mind was the game. I owed my teammates, coaches, trainers and parents — they kept pushing me even when I was down and believed in me. Coming into the game I had chills, but after a few plays I was back in the flow and everything felt normal. I’m just anxious and can’t wait for the season to progress and show how good we can be.”
