My goal is to continue to grow and play basketball at the College level. I am a student first and have always been advance in my academics. I am currently enrolled in all honor classes and will strive to continue to excel school. I know greatness is a mindset and everyday I am mentally getting myself prepared for this journey that I am about to go on. I know nothing that is worth it comes easy therefore I don't mind the hard work. I am determine to make my vision my reality.
I would consider myself as being one the quickest point guards around. I have always had great speed and natural athleticism which has been an advantage because I have been blessed with the opportunity to play on the Varsity level as a Freshman. This opportunity allows me to challenge myself by competing at a higher level. I have great ball handling skills, I love to communicate while I am on the floor and I love to get my team involved.
What separates me from a lot of other players is my defensive skills, I'm competitive, I want to win and I am a hustler. I always guard the best player when playing defense because I'm normally the quickest and have great footwork. I have also played football for 7 years being a quarterback, which gives me an advantage in basketball because I have to make good decisions with passes in football in the matter of seconds & as a point guard this skill translates over to how well and quick I pass to my team on the floor as I am able to see players that are open because of my good peripheral vision.
I am so excited for what the future has in store for me. All I need is ONE CHANCE and I will make it worth your time and investment.
