EXCLUSIVE TWITTER INTERVIEW
CHAPELGATE CHRISTIAN ACADEMY
Name: Jason Murphy
School: Chapelgate Christian Academy
What are your personal goals for the season?
To win a MIAA B Conference championship; to see my senior teammates close out their career on a high note if I can help get them there; and to have some individual success as well.
What did you work on this summer to improve your game?
I put up a lot of shots and worked on my conditioning. Obviously playing on the Nike circuit you go up against the best all over the country so that competition definitely helps.
What do you believe are your strengths and what do you believe you need to continue to improve? Definitely getting to the rim, guarding multiple positions and my rebounding and ability to alter shots are strengths. I am improving by continuing to get stronger and I'd like to get to the point where coaches are confident that I can spread the floor offensively.
What schools colleges have offered and also shown interest?
Old Dominion offered me last week. Of the schools that are showing interest, I talk most to North Carolina, Washington, Maryland and UCF. They've all been out to see me or invited me down for visits. Other schools I've heard from are Virginia, Pitt, Kansas State, Georgetown...
What was the highlight of your summer on the AAU circuit?
AAU was interesting this past year because I got a little frustrated early in the spring with myself but really re-focused in June and then the coaches said I had a breakout July. So I'd say the July Live period was the highlight for me.
Best Showcase or Camp experience?
I went to some really decent camps this fall but making the Top 30 All star Game at Pangos had to be the best experience.
