Play-Off bracket1
Odtohan stays on top of his hoops game - Mar 29, 2012

In the world of high school sports, one of the most important qualities a coach can instill in his players is good sportsmanship. While some students only have a matter of weeks or months to master it, other players like 17-year-old basketball star John Odtohan have been honing this quality for years.
Odtohan first came to the public's attention more than four years ago when he joined the Luis P. Untalan Middle School boys' basketball team in the eighth grade. His proudest achievement, he said, was joining Okkodo High School's team during his freshman year.
'I thought I wasn't going to make it because I saw all the other players from different schools,' said Odtohan. 'I was a little intimidated, but I fought through it, and I made the team.'

Championship
Now a senior, he appears to have made the right choice; after making the foray into high school-level basketball, Odtohan helped the Okkodo High Bulldogs nab the 2010 Independent Interscholastic Athletic Association of Guam Basketball League championship during his sophomore year. More recently, the Bulldogs took second place in this year's Far East Boys' Basketball Tournament and garnered third place this season in the IIAAG Basketball League.
'Basketball is my passion. I love it,' he said. 'I've learned how to win. At the same time, I've learned how to lose. Basketball gave me leadership experience.'
After spending four years in high school playing basketball, Odtohan's passion is still going strong, and he hopes to lead by example. Most importantly, he hopes other students interested in pursuing the sport competitively will find it in themselves to follow their dreams.
