Where did the name "Armor" come from?
The term “Armor” was first used around the 13th century. The common definition is protective covering that is used to prevent damage from being inflicted during combat. Well, that is what the basketball program is all about. The Armor Basketball program requires the individual and team toughness to withstand an opponent during a game. Every team we play will have runs during the game, but the Armor players will know by working together and being strong they will be able to withstand the attack and prevail in the end. This takes not only individual strength, team composure, but helping your teammates. As we all know, attitude is equally important as ability.
