LCSC Warriors share their Christmas wish list

LEWISTON, ID - At the University of Idaho as well as LCSC, athletes and coaches look forward to Christmas break, not only for a little time off, but to spend a couple of days with those they love.

Christmas time means it's time for a break and the men's basketball teams at both Idaho and LCSC couldn't be more excited, so excited in fact that one Warrior felt the need to sing.

"Dashing through the snow in a one horse open sleigh, over the hills we go, laughing all the way," sings Derrick Wofford.

While not every athlete is a karaoke star, all say Christmas is about one main thing.

"It's a time for family and to see the friends you don't get to see all year," said Matt Borton.

and with every family, comes Christmas traditions.

"We always just hang out all day and Christmas eve we normally open up a present," said Tom Sperry.

"I guess we go out and cut down our tree every year," said Stephen Madison.

Christmas decorations, the tree in particular, are always important. Some being extravagant, while others are simple."

"We've got a very Charlie Brown, fake tree in our house that my wife threatens to throw away every year," said Brandon Rinta.

Regardless of what the tree looks like, everyone looks forward to what's underneath it. Topping the list this year...electronics.

"I asked for a new IPad and IPad cover," said Don Verlin.

"A new IPhone," said Sperry.

"I asked for the new IPhone this year," said Borton.

Others however are keeping it on the less expensive side.

"I asked for bubble gum, some candy and a couple bucks and that's about it," said Kyle Borone. "I'm not too greedy when it comes to Christmas."

"I just asked for some clothes and just some warm clothes for the Idaho weather," said Stephen Madison.

Despite what everyone comes back to school with, the break is much needed and appreciated before the second half of the season gets underway and with that, here's one final note from Derrick Wofford.

"Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way," sings Wofford. "Oh what fun it is to ride in a one horse open sleigh."

Both teams get four days to go home to their families before they have to be back at practice to get ready for games on December 29th and 30th.
