I still remember when my parents got me first basketball. I didn’t even have a hoop to shoot it in, but I made use with what I had available, whether that was old garbage cans or laundry baskets or whatever. I wasn’t going to let anything get in the way of my dreams. I practiced with that ball every day outside after school. Once my parents saw how committed I was to the sport and pursuing my dreams they finally bought me my first basketball hoop. I remember my dad even had a tree trimming company come and remove so trees from an area in the backyard so we could put up the hoop.
This my official first post. It’s also official that I will be packing up my stuff and heading off to college at UT Arlington this summer. I just got my acceptance letter in the mail a couple months ago and have already spoken to and tried out for the basketball team at UTA. The coach told me that I definitely had some talent and some real potential to make the team. He even invited me to start training with the team this summer during off season workouts.
I really can’t believe this is all happening. It’s happening so fast. This is just the first step in my journey to making it to the NBA and eventually achieving my goals.
Well that’s all I have for right now. I should be updating more frequently here soon, so check back soon to see my next post.
