NEWPORT–If you attend the Coventry school's after-school program, which is held in the gymnasium, you might see a student standing on the corner of the free throw line practicing his shooting technique.
He is a quiet fellow, and he may be sporting a shirt bearing a character from the Marvel Universe, or perhaps a Celtics logo with his favorite player Jeff Green's last name and number on the back.
His name is David Gratton.
He is an 11 year-old fifth grader, and on April 12th he will represent the New England Region in the 10-11 year-old age bracket at the 2014 Elks Hoop Shoot National Finals in Springfield, MA.
