But now usually no beginning on my suit, I use it to some people.

Where I feel makes you guys follow that I hoops fl Also, if you want to read any of the articles that I've written for company down here in South Florida that can all be found on my twitter.

But anyway, so let's get right.
Every So how you been, man? And what's what's the deal of your computer? Okay.
It was, uh I guess it was on mute away way.
Are you? Yeah, I'm pretty good.
Thanks for asking.
I scada I've got a quick, like, light question your bio size up to dial it.
So you a big, big car Defend? Yeah, I actually used to be, but I think it's more so just ah, the messages in More like having fun, not thinking about waiting by the things, But that's just more so.
I haven't Yeah, I get all you got me in cardio.
I mean, he's already all right, but, I mean, like, I guess I'm comin.
Feel like it's all a bit Jozy fan.
So I mean, you know, one of mr that, the two at some point, But, you know, I mean, he brought a no, I don't know what the time is up to you to be on it, right? I think I think a lot of Red.
I think it's gonna be like I think it's gonna be like a banker that, like a lot of I think, a lot, everything. Business.
It's business like you do not on purpose, that's what That's right thing.
So how is this your season? Um, it was actually went great.
Uh, we made it to Reading Championship.
And then we made it all the way to the Elite eight, but we lost to kill.
But overall, it was like a really good said speeding for my team.
You know what? Ah, what's where teams are in your district or I don't know, district A region I don't know really how to do it in Georgia.
That's the same as any other prop teams that we know about the face.
I don't know if you know, but Cedar shows they made it to on the state championship, but they lost, but we beat them in a region shaped ship.
Um, a couple other teams, they're pretty good, But I think we have the hardest region for but amazing stage.
That's what makes you reading what made your region the hardest reason.
If you guys got teams like gracing over there in the area and make each earned.
But so but they're not in your in that, right? No.
So, I mean, those are pretty much the sort of schools that the average, I guess high school basketball family know about so called wise you're reading so hard.
I think we have a lot of you know, Georgia basketball is like, I think, one of the best basketball states in the country.
So I think every our region, we have a lot of great players, you know, going division one divisions who and, you know, they're making it all the way Far state tournament.
So especially our region.
So I think us beating them shows a lot of what we could have done and went further into the state championship.
So that says a lot right there.
And obviously I'm a South Florida guy, so I don't really know what the biggest Georgia I want.
I don't know how the Georgia Basketball determines and, uh, all the end of the year stuff works.
So just explain to me So you fish in the elite eight, right? Yes.
So what is that? Because he also knew how it works down here.
So pretty much you have a district, have, like, 46 teams.
And then if you were in your district or if you losing you have, like, a pretty good record.
Then you probably get into your region.
I thought, if you in your region, then you're like in the Final Four.
For states without the same way it works in Georgia is a little bit different.
Uh, well, how where's here is like, if your region or what you make it boring your reason you get a higher seat in the state tournament in the panel.
How you didn't season the higher seed you get in the state tournament.
Or if you don't do that at all, you don't even make it to the States.
So but I think there's, like, 32 teams in the state home.
Okay, but it's only 32 teeth as per class, right? You all right? Yeah.
That makes ah, that makes a lot of sense.
Um, were you guys playing at where they held the state tournament? Did you? Uh, no, no.
There's a different location.
So hours eso we we played our 1st 2 games in the state tournament our view for So I guess it just depends on where locations.
All right? Yeah, that.
Oh, I started pretty good to me now.
I mean, Georgia is a really, really talented state.
We said that earlier, and I understand that you are one of Georgia, the toughest guards.
So being a guard, when you gotta have a lot of leadership skills, you know, want, um, push.
Your team had overrun the offense.
Ah, you know, make sure guys, they're open.
Just do all that stuff.
And now they're coming into your junior and senior years.
So what are you trying to get done for your team, And how are you gonna leave them? So Oh, this year, I definitely want a running back with region.
When that aspect and and make it all the way to state and Wednesday personally.
And air freshman and sop****re year.
Where you still one of the leaders on your team? Or where you kind of taking, um or, uh, quite a role, I guess.
Uh, sop****re, you actually started the entire season s O.
That this this year was definitely a leader.
And then freshman year but we No, I definitely have to take a couple steps back because we had a couple.
Two or three division.
Where, uh, high level of Division one players, Uh, a couple d two players.
So it was my role, you know, watch learn.
Because I know that she was gonna be my here.
So it was more of a learning asked my freshman year And those division one guys that you talked about in your freshman year are there anybody that you think I would know that the viewers were now probably Maybe if Marcus Watson, what's again? School seaq.
He was I, Oklahoma State that he transferred to a new Mexico state, will be playing their next year.
I mean, were you were you having a guard them and go up against them in practice and stuff? Yeah, I made it up on me.
Yeah, I know you're a small guy too.
So are actually how tall you exactly.
I saw my, you know, scouting report about you and inside that your problem is your high.
I mean, I'm not I'm not even Ah, I think my my license says six feet.
5 right? That same thing for me? Yeah, Exactly.
So what would like going up against Those are really, really Ah.
Tell guys and ah, high major D one guys as a fresh can.
Uh, it was definitely a challenge, but, you know, I like challenges, So it was definitely, uh, it was a political experience.
Um, I've been playing against taller, taller do with my whole life.
So that was really phase gandal.
Um, definitely competition part of that.
But I really like that.
So And it seems like you do go to a pretty good program that has had a lot of success, but is there any chance you might end up transferring for one of your future? You're the high school.
Um, I don't I don't think so.
Uh, I've been a beautiful for a while now.
Uh, one thing I know for one thing I've learned about being here is that they care about their players.
They're never going to get there, but better and just become a better person overall.
And that's the only thing I care about and get it to the next level, for sure so and see it to that next level.
I'm sure you gotta work on a lot of different skills and moves in a lot of stuff.
So what types of moves are you working on right now? More so, uh, finishing my shooting.
So I I'm sure I have Ah, pretty strong finishing waas.
But, you know, getting better with my one shot every day.
That's the goal of the summit.
And you told me how are actually you even tell you? Tell me this, but you see how that UBL season was canceled? I mean, that's what we all knew.
So you ended up playing for ah, team ****erson. It's called right.
Eso you ended up playing 14 ****erson, since there was no you bl season, how is that all able to work out some? I actually, my friend, reached out to the coach for me.
Uh, me and we played together back when we were younger, so he was like, All right, let's get like it.
So we got that dying and I've been playing the last U turns with them.
It's been going good.
I'm playing with coming up table eight point.
That's gonna be a pretty good starting me.
Get a couple college coaches, uh, on the against.
And you said that you and your friend and, uh, we make a pretty good duo.
What was he playing with you in high school? Are Did you go to different middle school with me? Uh, we used to play the on again.
I have known him for a long time.
Do you think he's somebody you might end up teaming up with in college? Or maybe down the road in high school, too? If that's what the future holds.
Alright, Sounds Ah.
Sounds pretty good to me.
So what do you like most about playing on the IBL? Definitely competition.
You know, you have to play.
Yeah, I slow every every single game.
There's no there's no slacking at all.
So that that aspect definitely, uh, house we get better and definitely challenged me for sure.
And what if some of those Atlanta tournaments been like I mean, we got the tip off classic and who want to smoke? I mean, there's just been a lot of really, really good tournaments in the Atlanta area.
Pretty much you like.
If you want to watch a good high school basketball just come to Atlanta for now because that's Ah, that's Ah, that's the move for the time being.
So what of all those recent tournaments been like for you? You know, it's all competition everybody enjoyed. He wants to compete.
I feel like and like I said before, I think Georgia's best passport in the nation's it's all about be.
And I have they been fun for you or just what you were doing A good job is talking about, like, not a little more this for you personally.
So definitely, I was definitely, uh, I did.
You know, being this new team I've been playing with trying to use all the players and stuff coaches goes out.
But overall, I did.
Well do, uh And which one do you think was your favorite so far? Uh, shoot.
I couldn't probably this Maybe last weekend.
It was on the radar.
Ah, little showcase that we just had.
But I like all the points are little showcase way isn't is all the way that the one with like, Atlanta Celtics, all that stuff was that.
Yeah, that's not a little showcase.
Everybody like the whole nation.
You That was going on my writing.
And that's that's not Ah, you know my guy.

Do you want Do you have, like, flying early in the morning? I mean, if I got a play on my producing the way, Yeah, I feel it's time producing, so we know that your high schools produced guys that have gone a high major programs.
But for whatever reason, why me? I'm just a surprise that you probably are.
You got a zero division one offer.
So why do you think your is being so overlooked? Uh huh.
Uh, I don't know, but, uh, you know, I just focus on getting better every day.

Uh, not wearing too much about that, because I know it's gonna come.
But yes, it is more about just getting better, man.
Uh, you know, I know that's that's gonna come.
Yeah, because because you're saying I don't know why.
I mean, I'm looking You played the Y b l.
You played a good high school, so I don't really know why either, to be honest, but let's stop talking about having zero.
Division one offers what? Schools haven't shown interest in here so so far since eighth grade when I was playing you Have you, uh, Xavi, It reached out to me.
Um, Tennessee State, the shots.
I mean, border go close.
George ST, South Alabama.
Columbia Schools like that.
Yes, you got so obviously, are you really good at school then, too? Because he got Colombia.
Not Yeah, I believe I have a three point right now.

I'd be so first like you is not.
It wasn't like it was a got eggs.
A viewer was the first school to reach out to you to like I never understood some of these players that I talked to on these interviews.
Like I get so surprised people more about them.
To be honest, we said, We know we know you're elite when you need to pay for a mix tape.
So we talked about a talking with that stare.
Do you know Do you know what schools might be offering? You are really soon.
Which one would be talking to you a lot more? Uh, I'm not too sure about that right now.
Just focus on playing, get showing my show talent and all these terms coming up, and we'll see whoever you are with me and after those previous tournaments were were any schools.
But I am hitting off that the results you before like, hey, we watched you play like, keep it up or anything like that.
Genesee ST Ah, NC state and, uh, Colombian stuff.
And, uh, that that airfield may be reassuring knowing if they're still there.
Still always there for you, Like they reach out to you.
Earlier on, they were still making sure they focused on you at a tournament for sure that from the And, um, my final question is what are your goals for life.
Cool about like, uh, my main goal.
It's just, you know, be a better person every day.
Be a better play every day.
Better student in the classroom, All that come together, man, I think my life on the street Do you know if basketball maybe happens toe not work out anything like that? Really Know what career you might want to be Definitely in the training aspect, having that, you know, knowledge for basketball right now.
That small knowledge I have right now, but I feel like I can carry it on teach other case, my cheating, the kids hoping on the kids.
And let's talk about maybe training in that stuffy brother ended.
But, I mean, I got another question.
So work about training and builder Abascal knowledge.
How you think you've been ableto to do that? So my dad, uh, playing in the NBA, uh, teach me all this knowledge and stuff.
I feel like I've gained a lot of knowledge and that aspect and training me.
I can take those drugs.
He thought me, uh, so are the kids and all my trainers.
In the past, I've drained me right now.
Just take all of that.
Just teach other kids.

I mean, was he the factor? That was the main reason why you should Playing basketball? Probably.
Do you think you play similar to him at all? I do.
