Marty at the 4 on 4 Basketball Tournament 

How many years have you been involved with School on Wheels of Massachusetts’ Basketball Tournament?

I have been involved in directing the School on Wheels of MA 4 on 4 Basketball Tournament since its inception, 5 years ago.

What was your role in planning the event as well as your role the day of?   

Our committee: Neal Opper, Russell Opper, Carl Engelbourg, Cheryl Opper, and me have worked together each year to make the event run smoother, and raise more money. On tournament day, I get the pleasure of introducing everyone to the day: the format and the participants. Then I get to sit back and watch the teams compete.

Were you impressed with the outcome of the event?

I’d like to thank all the players, volunteer referees, volunteer scorekeepers, and SOWMA staff for their great efforts throughout the day. This year’s level of play was extremely high. We had many excellent players, from all age groups and backgrounds. We really appreciate the efforts of the 24-team captains, who made sure their squads were complete and ready to play.

What other SOWMA events have you been or will be involved in?

Besides this tournament, I also run each year in the School on Wheels of MA annual 5K race & fun walk. This year’s race will be held on Saturday April 25, at beautiful Borderland State Park in Easton.

And the most serious question: Can you dunk?

No, I can’t dunk a basketball, but I am highly proficient at kicking it (a very under-appreciated defensive skill).
