Lastly I had a great showing during the Hoop Group Elite Session 2 camp at Albright College where many college coaches gave me great feedback on my game and grew to show more interest in my talents.
5. How would you describe Williamsport basketball, what style of play will you guys play this season & what do you predict your role will be this season? Also how would you describe the competition in your Washington county public school conf?
Williamsport basketball this year will be very intense defensively because we know it starts on that end. Me and the guys love the way Coach Grabill runs this program and know he’s going to have us prepared when it’s game time. With the team we have this year we’re looking to play at a fast past and use our length. My role on the team this year will definitely be a leader along with being the primary scorer. I feel like this summer has mentally and physically prepared me to take on this role. This years Washington County conference is showing that we’re the best team. I feel like we will be well prepared and mentally ready for whatever situation hits us.
6. What was your biggest learning experience on the varsity level as a sophomore?
Playing varsity and starting as a sophomore brought many challenges with it. Me and my teammate Lincoln Ball were the primary ball handlers & scorers for the team and that just made us grow faster and stronger as the year went on.
