Growing up I have enjoyed watching so much basketball and replicating my game after so many players to become the player I am now. I have always loved the game of basketball since I can remember. From playing on a little hoop on the trampoline, to playing in my driveway on a 10 foot hoop and eventually playing on the high school varsity team and attending camps for elite players. If there is one thing I have taken away from the game of basketball and the advice I was given by my father who was a college athlete himself, it is that you have to be mentally tough just as much as physically.
My academic goal for high school is to graduate with an honors diploma. For college my goals academically are to attend all four years with an above 3.5 earning a bachelor’s degree.
One way I overcome challenges and struggles in the game of basketball is to watch film, study it, and try to fix my weaknesses by watching players who posses that certain aspect as a strength. I do drills each morning and each evening to turn my areas of weakness into strengths. For example, a minor adjustment to my jump shot recommended by one of my coaches has already increased my shooting percentage significantly.
One unique characteristics about my game is definitely my jump shot. Whether it is a three point shot or a 15 footer, I know it is going in based on the amount of time I have taken to master my shot. Another unique characteristic I have that I believe I can carry over to the college level is my ability to get in rebounding position and pull down the board. As a 6’ 2” guard I tend to shock people who watch me with my ability to rebound.
