Boy Finds Range in Shooting Contest

Will Davies sank 73 of 100 free throws in Monday’s Free Throws for Juarez competition at Weston High School. The 12-year-old made 40 of his first 50 attempts.

“I thought I’d make somewhere between 50 and 60,” Davies said. “To make 73 is really good. When I shot the first 50, I felt like I was in a pretty good zone.”

Davies plays basketball and soccer for Weston travel teams. He tuned up for the competition by practicing at home. “I wanted to do it because it’s for a good cause, and it’s my favorite sport,” Davies said.

The free throw competition was organized by Weston High grad Michael Evans. He founded Full Court Peace , an organization dedicated to curbing rising violence in Latin America. The non-profit focuses especially on Ciudad Juarez in Mexico, where 15,000 people have died in gang-related violence since 2006. FCP is working with local groups to develop after-school basketball clubs to help stop the violence.

Brian Cast also had a hot hand from the foul line earlier in the event. He made 86 free throws and raised $5,000 for the cause.
