Tyrese Maxey’s new high school uniform looks familiar

UK point guard commit Tyrese Maxey hopped on Instagram to show off his new high school uniform for his senior season at South Garland in Texas, and it looks a little familiar:

I assume South Garland’s new uni is an ode to Secretariat, so I looked into Secretariat’s connection to the Lone Star State. Turns out, a stallion named Country Side was believed to be Secretariat’s oldest living offspring, and he lived in Needville until his death in 2014. Needville is only 300 miles from Garland, so by Mitch Barnhart’s logic, it makes perfect sense to honor Secretariat at South Garland High.

      *not because of the checkerboard, because his team’s jersey is an homage to his future school.

    i can see Mitch tapping the tips of his fingers together and with a devilish grin claiming, “Soon I will take over the entire checkerboard world!”

    I like Drew’s sense of humor but that is a long way to go to take a shot at Mitch.
