Hobbs Nite League All-Star festivities don't disappoint, first attempt at video coverage

  The Hobbs Nite League All-Star festivities on the Fourth of July is one of my favorite events of the summer and again it didn't disappoint on Wednesday at Tasker Arena.
  Whether it was seeing the future of the Hobbs boys basketball program in the Junior High All-Star Game, the current Eagles in the High School All-Star Game, the 3-point contest (won by Daniel Salazar), the dunk contest (won by NMJC sophomore Dekabriean Eldridge - see photo) or the Hobbs Nite League All-Star Game itself – it's a day full of highlights and fun.
  I'm going to start trying to do a little more video coverage of sporting events and such, and since I don't have a video camera yet and am using my iPod for now, it may be a little shaky early on. Here is my first attempt at it with a video of Anthony Flemons competing in the dunk contest.
