00:00:00
that was over for the first time.
00:00:02
I like out forty.
00:00:04
Oh, I know what it was like.
00:00:07
It was it that was that has you can just take it after I can't be e If it was an hour like my longest one was maybe like an hour, maybe in our thirties, my longest one.
00:00:29
But it definitely wasn't that one.
00:00:31
Yeah, that's like, That's crazy Long.
00:00:34
Yeah, I know, there's there's there's just there's just no way that would be that, like, honestly, don't even know if I would want to, like a two hour long stream, not be terrible.
00:00:46
E get to the point where I don't wanna do it anymore.
00:00:49
You know, I gotta skip.
00:00:51
It doesn't make me look, you know, like sometimes like, you know, I'll be doing the interview, but eventually, like, you know, it's It's a certain time of the day.
00:00:58
Yeah, you guys get It's only like my voice gets so worn out out, So yeah, yeah, there's no there's no way that was an hour.
00:01:08
But now can I delete it? And I don't know how long it waas I sweat bows.
00:01:12
I think it's at least like an hour and thirty.
00:01:14
Yeah, there's there's no way that that has to be.
00:01:17
That has to be wrong for sure.
00:01:18
Yeah, there's none of these.
00:01:21
Oh, this one went for an hour and three minutes with the coach.
00:01:25
Um, yeah.
00:01:27
I haven't done a street.
00:01:28
Not long. In a minute.
00:01:31
Let's see, this was our and four another coach.
00:01:34
It's always the coaches like the media people that talk a lot.
00:01:37
Sure.
00:01:39
Uh, let's see his hour and twelve.
00:01:43
That might be my long.
00:01:45
Uh, yeah, our twelve is my longest.
00:01:50
Yeah, that's crazy.
00:01:51
There has to be wrong, But anyways, let's write this interview so before begin, make sure you guys follow me on instagram I hoops fl I post all these interviews I do here on SportsCastr.
00:02:02
So if you guys are showing up later, you're leaving early and you don't really feel like rewatching the whole stream. So you missed.
00:02:08
You find all the highlights and all the best of the best clips on my instagram my hips fl.
00:02:13
And if you guys wanna read any of the articles out of for them four company down here in South Florida, all of those can be found on my Twitter, I hopes recruits, along with some recent recruitment fell and putting up about some of these guys I've talked to here on SportsCastr.
00:02:28
But anyways, I let's get wrenches interview.
00:02:30
So my first question for you is, uh I saw you playing the cross.
00:02:33
So are you still playing the cross? Yeah. Yes, sir.
00:02:37
I've been playing off since first grade.
00:02:38
Them actually the game tonight.
00:02:40
Okay.
00:02:41
And I mean, are you excited for that game or what's your What's your mentality going into this lacrosse games? It is in a big game or what? What what What even is the importance of this game? It's like So it's like this second game out of our league so far.
00:02:53
I mean, I'm just excited to, like, get plenty of my guys again.
00:02:55
We've been playing like all summer, went to a couple of tournaments, got some w So I'm just I'm just excited to, like, get back with him.
00:03:02
Like across to me is like, kind of like a freeing sport, like it kind of takes away from some of the stress of basketball.
00:03:07
Maybe it's just like another like hobby to do.
00:03:09
Basically, it's just really fun and like if I could do anything I can to, like, help my guys get recruited in the cost that on that team, I'll do it.
00:03:16
I'm just really just playing for them at this point.
00:03:20
Are are you playing for your school, or is it for a club team right now? This for my clubs here.
00:03:26
Okay, but you play for both.
00:03:28
Yeah, I played for both this year.
00:03:30
If I wouldn't have gotten hurt, I probably been on varsity.
00:03:32
And our club school are our team in our school.
00:03:35
Gonzaga is like, last year they were red tops in the country going into the season.
00:03:39
So we got some pretty good recruits.
00:03:42
Also means that you're probably like you.
00:03:45
You could go.
00:03:46
Do you wanna come across then? Because if you you said you said you were going to play on your team.
00:03:51
But you didn't.
00:03:52
Yeah, I would have been on the team this year, but I got hurt, and then I just Yeah, I mean, I feel like I got a d one or if I, like, made it more of a priority.
00:04:04
I probably do also for your soft.
00:04:07
Yeah.
00:04:08
So for your sop****re year, you could apply it.
00:04:10
But then for your junior year, you're probably playing varsity.
00:04:12
Yeah, and you don't think you'd be able to go? Do you want even on the like if you make the top three team in the country or whatever, and then you obviously like cable going division one, maybe Really, like, five percent more effort because, yeah, probably like, tough in itself.
00:04:27
E probably.
00:04:28
Do you want to put on a show? Have I have any school that you asked you like? Oh, you know, you come to our school? Well, actually, you played both sports.
00:04:36
I'm like that, Um it's been like something I've been like, interested in.
00:04:40
I haven't really talked about many colleges about it, though.
00:04:43
Look, they're full on, like, full on basketball.
00:04:46
But I mean, when I went on a Notre Dame visit last year, I actually, like had a really good conversation with across Canada, so it was pretty cool.
00:04:53
I was at Notre Dame.
00:04:54
Visit was, I don't know.
00:04:55
That was an unofficial visit right when I was unofficial, something that was set up between my coach and coach Bray up there.
00:05:01
I got like, a tour.
00:05:02
That's watch them play against Bowling green football and watched their practice.
00:05:06
It was really cool.
00:05:07
And I was at, like coincidence.
00:05:08
Tell you what the um, a lacrosse coaches, they have that set up for you.
00:05:12
They have that set up for you.
00:05:14
Okay, so? So they were, like, seriously interested? I guess.
00:05:17
I think so.
00:05:19
Coach Barry talks to me like, Yes, He said he's really excited to recruit me this year.
00:05:24
Okay, well, that's Ah, they have a good lacrosse team.
00:05:27
Er, they've got a really good across them up.
00:05:28
They're really good program.
00:05:30
Okay.
00:05:31
You know, I want to do you consider kind of stuff.
00:05:34
You consider yourself a relax boy or guy or whatever they say.
00:05:42
It's just bigger. Pretty reality.
00:05:44
It's funny, I would like, but What do you mean? Like, it's like a personality trait kind of thing.
00:05:52
Like, really high energy.
00:05:53
Like, really loud hip all the time.
00:05:55
But it's just like something you need.
00:05:56
Like if you wanna put across, you wanna be on a good team like, needed, like kinda like master energy.
00:06:00
Like B b.
00:06:01
Really? Like loud, high energy.
00:06:02
Just be ready toe Like although, like run through a wall.
00:06:06
Yeah, and run through a wall. Sounds pretty painful.
00:06:09
I know Lacrosse pretty painful sport.
00:06:11
So, you know, have you ever gotten I guess what we call like, stick stick checks.
00:06:15
And that was called So I played defense, so I'm like, more like doing that's like, other kids.
00:06:22
But I've gotta feel like nasty starts, like my arms and my legs.
00:06:26
So it's not fun.
00:06:27
It's painful, but you just gotta fight there.
00:06:30
Uh, is it like that painful that you really like you, like, extremely gotta fight through it? Or can you kind of, you know, just keep playing or Yeah, it just depends on its, like, part of the game, like, Depends on, Like where you get hit honestly, like once I'm, like, last, um, last event actually, like, broke my thumb I got slash, like, really hard on my thumb broken.
00:06:50
So honestly, the path is where you get hit.
00:06:53
And since you're the one who hitting have you ever hit someone that they got hurt and did you feel bad at all? I mean, both of the times, but I mean, you kind of feel bad, but then, like all the other part is like, it's like, kind of part of the game, so it depends on yeah, just in sports in general, Like, I just I don't know.
00:07:13
For some reason I'm like, thinking about it.
00:07:15
I feel like I wouldn't feel bad at the same time.
00:07:17
I'm thinking, like if I ever heard somebody, no matter what sport it waas I just was so bad.
00:07:22
I mean, like especially was about the guy Get, like, peeled off and, uh, whatever.
00:07:26
Like on a structure or something like that.
00:07:28
Like, I think that's, like, super embarrassing ****.
00:07:32
That's a like some kids have been like a in the little statue e don't know when I was younger, like all the s so cool like, Oh, my God.
00:07:42
I e a little, uh, wait.
00:07:47
When you guys were little people would, like, use it like they were like flax.
00:07:49
Like a lot of people, they hurt.
00:07:52
Sure, I know what that crosses A.
00:07:55
That's an interesting I never knew that was I was a thing that's crazy.
00:08:00
The the cool sport.
00:08:04
I mean, cool, little bit, a little bit suss, But when you're when you're playing across everybody, I guess you know, slash someone what's what are.
00:08:12
Do you like thinking all you just kind of like, Let me just hit him as hard as I can or let me try getting the ball out or what's What's the thought process? You're just trying to get the ball honestly, because I'm on defense like that's the main objective.
00:08:24
Just get the ball back for your offense, trying to get it clear.
00:08:27
Clear it down.
00:08:28
Yeah. Makes him highlight place.
00:08:31
Yeah, you said make highlight plays.
00:08:32
Have you ever made a highlight play before? On the cross on? Are those are they noticeable? The wash with the earth, Like in football where you have to replay it.
00:08:40
Almost. Just notice what you did.
00:08:44
Um, there's it depends on like like, there's only a lot of, like, obvious.
00:08:47
Like how that plays me like a big hit.
00:08:49
I strip take away and get a ground ball.
00:08:51
They're the opposite side of the field.
00:08:53
It honestly depends.
00:08:54
So yeah, that's pretty pretty obvious how that's all right.
00:08:58
And and I guess what? What got you into playing across like What was that big factor? Oh, man. Yeah.
00:09:12
Oh, yeah.
00:09:13
I can hear you did freeze first.
00:09:15
Okay? Yeah, yeah, um, when I was little, like my elementary school in my middle school, like it's a really big cross school, like a lot of players going to that school.
00:09:24
And, yeah, head coaches, like the local club program, was actually head coaches like another really good across school in my hair called Georgetown Prep.
00:09:32
And, like he told me on my dad like I should really get to the game like there's not that many minority athletes and like, it's like it's like a growing game.
00:09:39
So all my friends played and I just really wanted to try on playing.
00:09:43
Yeah, I just ended a fall in love.
00:09:46
Yeah, it sounds, uh, sounds pretty cool.
00:09:48
And how are you able to play both sports and how that has ever been a conflict before? Um, it depends like so since I played basketball like at a higher level, I'd say, like, take it like from like a you team up or that probably go like a practice for them instead of like, practice for the cross.
00:10:09
Um, so this some conflict, but like I say during the like season, like we'll be doing maybe like one tournament at the very end for basketball that might conflict with the cross.
00:10:20
And I'd probably end up just going across, okay? And have you may be like, do coaches get mad at you when you have to pick, you know, once for over the other.
00:10:28
Like I know I know these for basketball.
00:10:30
Like, if I have to miss like that, I think the coaches like this.
00:10:33
I think it gets mad regardless of what the excuse is like.
00:10:36
I just like they're always so like mad.
00:10:38
And you miss practice.
00:10:39
So do coaches, like, get upset with you.
00:10:41
You know, when you're missing on ah, practice whether you know you're missing a lacrosse progress of basketball or vice versa? No, they understand.
00:10:47
Like I make it like, known to them that I've got to sports going on.
00:10:51
So as long as I keep them on notice, that all right, everything Yeah.
00:10:55
And do you think I may be playing lacrosse has helped you in basketball.
00:11:00
It all? Yeah, definitely.
00:11:01
It's really, like affected, like towards me playing.
00:11:03
I'm, like, a little aggressive and I played basketball, like try to, like, make good place on defense and stuff.
00:11:08
And so since I'm like a really aggressive lacrosse player like it's really helped out with my footwork and just like how I make plays on the basketball court on the defense of them.
00:11:16
And when you say get aggressive in basketball or do you Do you have to get a lot of fouls? Or if not, I mean, how are you able to play defense at aggressive way without getting too many fouls? I'll just keep my energy up.
00:11:28
I'm really high energy guy wanna play defense, especially this somewhere.
00:11:31
Like I've been doing a really good job of doing that.
00:11:33
Um, taking charges, just making like high energy plays, plays that really like boosted team's momentum, not necessarily fouling.
00:11:40
I think I've only found out of, like three or four games in my entire career, but I don't really get that many fouls.
00:11:45
I just tried toe, do what I can on defense.
00:11:48
Just make hustle.
00:11:49
Bliss.
00:11:50
Yeah, I'm glad used to take charges because nobody takes charges.
00:11:53
May like it, z unbelievable.
00:11:55
I mean, how are you able toe? How are you able to learn? You know it's important, take charges and how are you able to develop that skill in that mindset? where, uh, you know, I'm about, uh maybe hurt myself.
00:12:05
But, hey, it's OK because a lot of kids, you know, they just can't just can't grasp that.
00:12:09
Yeah, um I don't know.
00:12:11
You just, like, kind of in the play develops it just kind of like a natural instinct, cause when I was little, I like, kind of like I made it advantages.
00:12:18
I wasn't like I wasn't that tall like I wasn't as tall as I am now.
00:12:21
Clearly, I was like, I was kind on the smaller side.
00:12:24
So whenever I get, like, match up with a big in the paint, I'd make sure to, like, use their way to my advantage because when we were little like, they would always just go head down and try to drive.
00:12:33
So I would just try to get that, like, initial contact, And I would just, like, flop honestly.
00:12:38
And I get the charge every time when you say little how How how little were you? Um, when I was like, I was always, like, kind of like the taller end of my class E h h Oh, I'd say when I was like, like fourth grade, when I was like, nine.
00:12:56
Ten.
00:12:57
You were taking artist and fourth grade.
00:12:58
Yeah, I've been taking charges for a long time.
00:13:00
Like I was a hustle player.
00:13:01
Like when I was really little since.
00:13:02
Like, second grade, actually.
00:13:05
I mean, how did you even I don't even I might know what a charge was, but I definitely didn't know how they took.
00:13:09
Like when they would do a charge.
00:13:10
I would be like, How did they do that? How did you How did you know how to take a charge in fourth grade? I mean, that is something that I've never heard of before.
00:13:18
I don't know. It was just like an instinct.
00:13:20
Honestly, I saw some place, like on heat or something.
00:13:22
I was like, I wanna do that like, and my coaches would encourage it, So yeah, I just do it.
00:13:27
Um, were you playing across in fourth grade as well? Yeah.
00:13:31
I've been planning all this since first grade.
00:13:32
I don't think I've ever taken a year off.
00:13:34
Oh, yeah, I think I think my theory is that is, that may be because you're playing across.
00:13:38
So you're just getting hit by a stick like, Oh, it's a stick getting back to me or a person to get to pick the person, uh, running into me.
00:13:46
I mean, kind of faking a ah fall.
00:13:48
I think that might be the factor.
00:13:51
That's my little theory, but that that is unbelievable.
00:13:54
In fourth grade, taking charges, that is something really cool.
00:13:57
Yeah, across really tough ones. Yeah.
00:13:59
Stuff like that.
00:14:01
Yeah.
00:14:02
And I know, at least for, uh, I know that my mom or my parents times they kind of tell me, like, you know, don't don't get laid on the alliance sometimes because, you know, you're obviously not being paid to play basketball.
00:14:12
I know.
00:14:13
Neither am I.
00:14:14
So how maybe your parents like taking charge? Something bad happens or standing on the cross, Or how are you able to make sure you stay safe is Well, um, honestly, they've never really had a problem with it.
00:14:27
As long as I'm just playing the game.
00:14:29
That's all they really care about, as they just wanted to do the best I can for my team.
00:14:34
Yeah, so I cannot get over a charge of fourth.
00:14:36
That is crazy, But do you usually take a charge of game in high school game.
00:14:40
I've been trying to make that a priority this summer.
00:14:42
I think I've taken a charge out of the six games my A team has played out taking a charging five and how may be any schools when they kind of you talk to you.
00:14:51
They said, like, yeah, you know, we just love that you take Chargers and, you know, just play basketball, I guess.
00:14:55
The right way.
00:14:56
Yeah, I talked to a couple of college coaches about like, if that's how one of my games one I'll talk about taking charge and I get really excited about that.
00:15:02
So it's pretty cool thing to do.
00:15:05
Yeah, you should have somebody put that in a in a mix tape.
00:15:07
Actually, that I mean, that I cannot get I would ask the guys who would talk to them like they're like, Yeah, I'm good.
00:15:14
This this and I'm like they say, no, I'm gonna defense.
00:15:17
So I go detailed charges, they're like, Yeah, that's like the one thing I'm like.
00:15:21
I mean, that's that.
00:15:23
Like, if you take the charges, you're gonna be elite like that is going to separate you from some of the other people.
00:15:28
Yeah, I charge before I got the wind knocked out of me.
00:15:31
That was so I think the kid hated me.
00:15:33
It was in practice.
00:15:34
It was a good charging drill on the kid.
00:15:36
I don't know what I did to him, but no one ever took the charge that hard.
00:15:41
He literally ran into May.
00:15:43
It was terrible.
00:15:45
That's funny.
00:15:46
I mean, it's funny, but I don't like I don't know what I did to the kid on. I asked me afterwards.
00:15:50
I'm like, Seriously, he's like, Do you play basketball? I'm like, no one.
00:15:54
No one did it that hard.
00:15:55
And it was the drill where they have you held the ball and kind of shoved into the person, and they shoved it into me.
00:16:01
So fat or not fast, like powerful.
00:16:04
He was like, pushing it into me.
00:16:06
It was crazy.
00:16:11
And now you hear me, right? Yeah.
00:16:17
Oh, yeah.
00:16:18
I just wanna also make sure, But anyways, we talked about a lot more about Gonzaga, not prep, but Gonzaga High School.
00:16:25
Or it was like a college high school.
00:16:28
Yeah, Yeah, inside a college high school.
00:16:29
Yeah, I'm glad.
00:16:30
I'm glad I learned that, but all right, I mean playing a Gonzaga high school.
00:16:35
What makes that program so legendary? We've got a lot of really high major guys that have came through like there's so many.
00:16:42
Like, I feel like, unspoken about people that have really come through Gonzaga like, But we have so many high major talent, like we've got Tyler Thornton, who was the back up of Kyrie Irving, and when he got hurt, he kind of embraced the starting role.
00:16:54
We've got the person who probably like the clutches shot instead of a history.
00:16:57
The game winner from Villanova, Chris Jenkins.
00:17:00
And then I got like a bunch of on the next year, his like, there's like they've got, like, a really good story, like kids like, kind of like adoptive brother like neighbor who's on North Carolina.
00:17:08
They won the championship next year.
00:17:09
We've got so many guys like we've got so many guys and uh in the college right now that are like High Manager.
00:17:14
We've got Terrence Williams got Prentice Hub.
00:17:17
Chris likes we've always pushed out like, really high major talent, and it seems like you know, a ton of history about your school's basketball program.
00:17:25
I mean, how do you know all this information? Is the problem with the school of a class like the history of basketball Gonzaga high school? Or how do you know this, uh, information on the on your school's basketball programs? History.
00:17:35
I mean, my dad was the coach, so I basically grown up like Gonzaga.
00:17:39
He's been head coach there for about twenty years and so on.
00:17:44
Do you think so? Were you one of those kids were like, after the game, You always locker room, you always in the floor and all that stuff.
00:17:52
Yeah.
00:17:53
Yeah.
00:17:54
What's it kind of like being one of those kids? Um, I mean, it's it's cool.
00:17:59
Like it's really good experience you, like, kind of make relationships with, like all your your dad's old players.
00:18:04
Like I still like, I'm in connection with some of the guys.
00:18:07
Like I even, like, work out like my one of my main workout guys, one of my dad's ex players.
00:18:11
So pretty cool.
00:18:12
Make a lot of connections that way, I guess.
00:18:15
Yeah, I don't know.
00:18:16
Did it really a surprise face at some point right before? During while I ask, the question didn't make a funny face while I ask the question, I'll start the past broken pencil.
00:18:27
Last wiles.
00:18:28
I thought I thought it was like a pencil that couldn't be broken.
00:18:31
So I was, like, moving around.
00:18:33
I guess I was broken.
00:18:34
Um, yeah, I remember that was crazy.
00:18:38
But again, Um, so with your data being the coach, you know each other earlier? Um, well, maybe the biggest lesson that he's taught you um, just the focus on the next play.
00:18:49
I used to have a problem when I was younger with, like, I would make a mistake and I would let it, like, stand my head for like, probably like the rest of the quarter rest of half.
00:18:57
Just like I've been doing a lot better job of that.
00:18:59
Just like if I miss a shot, I'll just say whatever.
00:19:02
Just focus on the next shot, make make a play next time, make a good defense or something like that.
00:19:10
I have another question about being a guess, the coach's kid.
00:19:13
Because since you're kind of like you know what, I'm the school probably feels like a second home to you during the games.
00:19:18
However, you got in trouble like probably the obvious not doing anything bad.
00:19:22
Like maybe, you know, you're on the court and, like, you know, maybe like someone runs into you or something where maybe you get hurt or like, just invade.
00:19:30
I guess the game's, uh, the game space.
00:19:32
Since you know, just kind of feel so comfortable that you feel you could walk wherever I never like walking on the court during game.
00:19:38
I would maybe, like, sit around on the side baskets during practice and like, if they're doing, like, sprints out, like in the way sometimes.
00:19:45
But I never got hurt or anything.
00:19:46
Like I never fell down.
00:19:47
They were just, like, out of the way you would be in the locker room, right? I guess after every game with your dad, when you were younger, Yeah, I would be in locker like as much as possible.
00:19:59
But then I have to get out.
00:20:00
If I had, like, a bad performance and like he was yelling at them and stuff but is very political and were you may be able to take away a lot from his, uh, his pre or postgame speeches and stuff like that.
00:20:13
Yeah, like he's got some really good postgame speeches I've tried to like, take into account some of them.
00:20:18
He just talks about, like how the game went, what they need to do to get better, just stuff like that taken into account.
00:20:23
And now he still gives really good ones like us after a loss or when he's pretty good at special Speaker.
00:20:29
And since you've probably been toe a ton of games, obviously and her ton of his speeches do coaches have a repeat speeches or are they all different? Um, he he makes up all of his on the fly.
00:20:41
Really? Just depending on what happened after the game or before the game.
00:20:45
Yeah.
00:20:46
Do you think I'll be coaching a thing that you might wanna pursue when you're when you're older? Yeah, I thought about it.
00:20:51
Actually, it could be a pretty good coach.
00:20:55
My brother actually tried to get into it, too.
00:20:57
He's still going to get into it, So I thought about it.
00:21:00
It might be a path I might like to take.
00:21:04
Yeah, it does it sound really cool.
00:21:06
And, uh, now playing at City of Palms again, you mentioned Chris like they're, you know, great player from the Hurricanes.
00:21:12
But Yeah, I saw you guys play a city of Palm's.
00:21:14
And honestly, it wasn't for Chris likes.
00:21:17
I would have no clue what Gonzaga College, High School Waas.
00:21:20
But then I got like, I I didn't even say this is Gonzaga.
00:21:25
I said, this is Chris likes high school.
00:21:27
Um, so, I mean, is your team a kind of a little bit of under the radar? And why do you think that? I definitely say so.
00:21:34
Like, we've got We've got some known like teams in our conference like, um, politics, ST John's College High School, the map.
00:21:43
So, yeah, we're all the same conference.
00:21:45
I'd say we're pretty swift on the radar, though.
00:21:47
Like we've had some really cool games.
00:21:49
You can watch Chris Lexus game against Sierra Canyon with Marvin Bagley, Cody Rieti, Cody Riley Remy Martin Ah, Christian beat ****ey Chain played I m g really close.
00:22:05
Um oh.
00:22:06
Day we beat them, Paul Ban and start team down the city of Palm.
00:22:10
So I'd say, Yeah, we're pretty swept under the radar.
00:22:12
We should have some more recognition.
00:22:13
Media waas on Martin. That's the case.
00:22:17
Um I feel like programs from like my air don't really get is much love is like programs with maybe California and New York, New Jersey, those types.
00:22:24
But I feel like I mean, it's starting to increase, I guess, because, like some of our teams will be some pretty big names like Paul, the Six Beat Sierra Canyon this year.
00:22:32
The Matha want for who they played, but they want a big game up in a the showcase in Massachusetts, so we're starting to get on the rise.
00:22:40
But I feel like we don't get enough recognition.
00:22:43
And do you maybe, like what? I guess, to put our just like you do.
00:22:47
You kind of wish the D.
00:22:48
M.
00:22:49
V was kind of on the map or that they are.
00:22:51
But you wish they were.
00:22:52
You know, one of those times when people say, you know, top basket places, usually whatever Chicago and I guess, uh, New York and I guess Los Angeles.
00:23:00
But you kind of wish maybe the D.
00:23:01
M.
00:23:02
V was way more of that conversation. A lot more.
00:23:04
Do you have to like being stepped on and being in that slept on area? I definitely was during the conversation, more like it's like it's like you get slept on for, like, two long, and it's like, Why don't we? Why don't we like up there in this conversation? But some people recognize some people notice.
00:23:20
Yeah, I mean, I I think the D.
00:23:22
M.
00:23:23
V is definitely if it's if it's out there, I say next year, you know everyone's gonna talk about it.
00:23:26
I e mean, I found so many guys from your area that are, like, legit, and I know there's even a more too.
00:23:32
So I think it's, Ah, pretty crazy area, for sure.
00:23:36
But with city of problems, because again, I thought of your did not call it Gonzaga College High School.
00:23:41
I called it Chris likes high school.
00:23:43
Um, it was maybe one of your goals for that tournament since you guys didn't get a lot of good teams, did it? Coaching you say, like, Hey, let's try putting this program, you know, back in the map, let a lot of people know what Gonzaga College High School is.
00:23:55
Yeah, that was the goal going into this season when he said it was such a big like schedule.
00:23:59
We had so many teams nationally scheduled like Qala Mir rancher like I said before.
00:24:04
So, yeah, we got off to a hot start.
00:24:06
Would be, Ah, hot start would be their day by, like, twelve, I'd say.
00:24:09
Then we played I m d and a really close game you can watch the film on.
00:24:12
It was I honestly think we should have one fans that I thought we should have wanted.
00:24:16
It was pretty, like, closely contested, but the refs kind of gotten away.
00:24:19
Then after that, we played Sheriff Cooper.
00:24:26
We did a good job of it.
00:24:27
I mean, I don't know if we got this time we deserve, but we got we got a pretty good amount out of it.
00:24:34
I mean, I think the p a announcer was hyping you guys up.
00:24:37
Ah, lot.
00:24:38
I think he said that.
00:24:39
You know, Dad's like a legendary coach like all this stuff.
00:24:41
And I'm like, What is this guy knows information, but yeah, I I think he definitely helped you guys up Baton and did It wasn't in the kitchen game, wasn't across and stuff with the rest to like it was kind of a weird game, but it went our favor.
00:24:57
So we gotta appreciate, I guess.
00:25:00
Yeah.
00:25:01
Yeah, that that I am.
00:25:02
I mean, that was kind of crazy.
00:25:03
Do you think? Do you have any guys? I mean, those i m g players are.
00:25:06
They were huge, like it's weird.
00:25:08
Like team, I think Eric Daily like he's pretty big Juris Walker.
00:25:13
They're like, huge thinking small, though, right? I was probably, like six, four, six, five.
00:25:21
That tournament now about six seven.
00:25:23
So, yeah, I mean, I got some minutes that game I didn't play a whole lot.
00:25:28
But now I probably this year, if we play them again, I'd get a lot of minutes.
00:25:31
I probably started.
00:25:33
Yeah, I'm kind of like I wish I knew like Mork because I didn't even have instagram.
00:25:38
I got instagram, I think the day after the like the final game, the championship game.
00:25:44
So I wasn't, you know, searching up like players all day long, so I had no clue.
00:25:49
I didn't even know anyone on your team waas at the time.
00:25:54
But so you went from six four, two, six, seven like this this year.
00:25:58
Really? Yeah.
00:25:59
Like mid season, I'd say I was like, six, four, six, four and a half than quarantine hit.
00:26:03
I was probably like six five going to quarantine now I'm about six, six, six seven Say I'm, like, six six and a half six seven without shoes.
00:26:12
And was that your gross spur? Or did you have one before? A swell.
00:26:16
The huge girls like started, um, started eighth grade.
00:26:19
I'd say I was five six.
00:26:20
I was sort of my mom.
00:26:21
Then end of it.
00:26:22
I was about talking my dad six foot.
00:26:24
Then going into freshman year, I grew a couple inches on.
00:26:27
Uh, yeah, but the biggest one, I'd say it was that eighth grade going into ninth grade on, uh, do you know why you've had all these growth spurts? Because I think I've only had one.
00:26:38
I think maybe I have had more, but for you And then you went from six, four, six, seven, You know, during the quarantine.
00:26:45
Then you said you also had one, you know, from a third going to ninth grade.
00:26:48
So why do you think you kind of had so many growth spurts? Honestly, I just think I had, like, the genetic lottery.
00:26:53
No.
00:26:54
One of my family's really that's all had six foot my half brother, six three, but that's because it was mom saw than other than that, no one in my family is really above like, six.
00:27:02
One, six, two.
00:27:04
Yeah, yeah.
00:27:06
Do you get a lot of like, uh, I guess not.
00:27:09
Cop people was like a lot of standing your family.
00:27:11
Every time you see them, they're always like, Oh, wow, you look so tall or their grammar is like But I ever And you were smaller than me or, you know, all these comments all the time.
00:27:20
You get, like, everything.
00:27:21
Basically, Yeah, Like like every day you get those comments or exactly a little bit of exaggeration, I get a lot like I mean, I'm six seven pretty tall, Did.
00:27:31
So every time I go out, I feel like you're talking.
00:27:33
I've had, like, a lady stopped her car and say, Oh, like how college it was like this old lady.
00:27:40
She's pulled over to the sidewalk.
00:27:42
I was doing my girlfriend.
00:27:43
She put it to the side and she was like, Oh, my gosh, how tall are you, like seventy something? That was really funny.
00:27:50
Yeah, that was seemingly working the grocery store.
00:27:52
People like, Do you play basketball because I'll ask you Have you ever told them like, No, I may be playing like a different sport.
00:27:59
Yeah, sometimes I'm like, No, I'm I could tell them golf playing so e always something like that.
00:28:06
I am.
00:28:07
What did they say? Like, Oh, did you ever played basketball before? But I'm not really sometimes like I would play like, rec ball.
00:28:15
And they're like, **** what I'm saying.
00:28:17
Like, yeah, maybe I should've gotten into it or something. E.
00:28:22
I love your like impression that Zo like it's so on point.
00:28:25
I was not your impression of like, I'm sorry.
00:28:29
I've had some funny interviews.
00:28:31
Uh, today.
00:28:32
So, man, I was That was pretty funny while, um, and I remember. Sorry.
00:28:40
I'm for us.
00:28:41
Earlier you said you were pretty grants or Christian.
00:28:42
Was that in California, or is that in a tournament somewhere? Nike Pollution in California Is that modern day.
00:28:51
Okay, what's the What's the Nike Pollute? And that was this season are last season.
00:28:55
That was this season.
00:28:56
Yeah.
00:28:57
What is it like all the Nike teams? Like all the top rated Nike teams from around the country, like the elite Nike teams, I forget who moderate played.
00:29:07
I think it was a team from Jersey.
00:29:09
It was a like there.
00:29:15
I think so.
00:29:16
You can you another one this year.
00:29:17
I'm not sure that's the played modern day a couple of years ago when the medals on that team okay, But I was just like you do a lot, I guess.
00:29:28
Cool stuff for the teams.
00:29:30
And what what sorts of stuff is Nike Dio And then I could lose up? Uh, yeah, they do like there's like this, like lounges for the players.
00:29:38
They give us like some food.
00:29:39
Oh, they give us this like Big Jim to practice, and it's pretty cool.
00:29:42
They let us play play like PS four or something like that.
00:29:45
Did it happen? Did they give you guys? Is that like, exclusive Nike man? That's kind of I'm kind of surprised you all the stuff that you wiped out.
00:30:06
Then you have your own high school baseball turning for your top top teams and you get nothing.
00:30:10
That's a little bit, uh, a little bit of a shocker, but that's how they make.
00:30:14
They made a lounge for the players, but then what? Like when did you guys even go there like aren't you after practice like they had a scope.
00:30:21
This like Big Lounge? It was pretty cool.
00:30:23
It was really nice over there.
00:30:25
I honestly, I just like the experience, like going to California.
00:30:28
I've never really been West Coast besides maybe going on organ when I was really little for a couple of years ago.
00:30:35
And but yeah, like just going to California bunch of East Coast kids like it was pretty cool, but it just like some because our game was so like we had some jet lag, like game there with nine.
00:30:45
But that's midnight for all the on the East Coast, and we were playing against, like, a host team.
00:30:49
So it's like that played a factor into like we were pretty sluggish, but we held them like we're going back and forth all game.
00:30:55
I think the final score was like lost by eight, but that was because, like free throws at the end of the game.
00:31:00
In reality, it was like a three point game.
00:31:02
Yeah, you didn't play a game when you fly it in the right.
00:31:06
Excuse me.
00:31:07
You didn't play a game like the day you flew in.
00:31:09
Now we put the day after we flew in, like at night going in and then we practice, like, earlier in the day.
00:31:17
And then we played at NA and the night, okay? And oh, man.
00:31:23
Well, even whatever I guess.
00:31:25
How are you? How come I'm thinking about how come the jet lag was like that? I can't even give you, like, the timing a little bit more of, I guess, compared from Eastern Taw Pacific time.
00:31:35
Yeah, way we're on Eastern time, like all week.
00:31:38
Then we finally come from school and then just automatically hit Pacific time Like I think everyone like the day we got like throughout the day we were there like everyone was sleeping like it was crazy like we were sleeping til, like three PM Then we had practice and they were, like, having all right.
00:31:52
We had early e think we like that we got there in the morning.
00:31:55
Actually, we got there for a day.
00:31:57
We, like, saw some stuff.
00:31:58
We went down toe, actually, the Staples Center.
00:32:01
Then we got through that morning.
00:32:02
We practice that day.
00:32:03
Then after everyone was like, we want to go to the hotel like just like it was a while, but then you guys were arrested them like it was no way felt so sluggish.
00:32:19
Like people were sleeping throughout that day.
00:32:21
We had practice.
00:32:22
It was just Yeah, it was.
00:32:25
So I don't give you, I guess, a lot more respect when n b a teams on the road and all that stuff because because, I mean, you said, you know, beats up that we fall asleep.
00:32:33
Eight.
00:32:34
We were all super tired, I mean, but now it's kind of crazy thing about how you know there's NBA teams and they play those games.
00:32:40
You know, the kind of able the well, I guess.
00:32:42
I guess technically, the one concern may be for the playoffs.
00:32:45
When the finals bought it on that, like the team that kinda have that, uh, that period, I guess toe deal with it somehow? Yeah, Yeah, it's like, Yeah, I can't imagine going back and forth on the East Coast of West Coast especially like the finals.
00:32:58
Like if you had, like, the Celtics play against the Lakers and the Heat playing, it's the Lakers.
00:33:01
Like that's crazy.
00:33:02
I mean, I don't even think about that.
00:33:05
Yeah, And you said we were taught stable center and did a lot of other stuff.
00:33:09
Um, was, I guess, the only touristy things you guys did or was there anything else, too? That was cool.
00:33:14
Yeah, we just saw.
00:33:16
Like, we went down to the Cub Memorial outside the Staples Center, which is really cool, and yeah, that was really going to What was the thing we did? Got some food.
00:33:23
What's in and out, Which is pretty good.
00:33:26
Okay.
00:33:27
Is that good? Yeah, it's really good.
00:33:29
And I was really good to make your burgers so fast and like like, Yeah, it was really good.
00:33:34
I like the fries air. Okay.
00:33:36
Like, they just need a little more salt on them.
00:33:37
But the burgers were really good.
00:33:39
Okay, so Well, I guess like you, would you say that's the best.
00:33:43
Like, probably shake Zacher five five Now, it was weird because I got it.
00:33:56
I think so.
00:33:57
The first time I went to my first, Like, like in person in.
00:34:00
So I get five guys and then, uh, the burger like it was fine and the actually no sorry.
00:34:05
We had our WiFi down in my house on my life three years.
00:34:08
So I go to my dad's office.
00:34:09
The five guys that got five guys for dinner on the burger was all right.
00:34:13
And the fries, they weren't even salted.
00:34:14
And then all of a sudden, I guess you're the fries were so good, you know, nice and salty.
00:34:19
The burger was really good.

Yeah, five guys.
00:34:21
Uh, that's pretty good.
00:34:23
This looks Yeah.
00:34:24
I think everyone like, if you ask anyone from the d M v.
00:34:27
They say five guys.
00:34:28
So Shake Shack's best place.
00:34:30
Are they just ton of five guys there? Is that kind of like a a big, not like staple? I mean, they're everywhere, though, right? I think so.
00:34:38
Everywhere, but like in the D M V.
00:34:40
They're pretty big, like that one.
00:34:42
Like almost every shopping find or something like that.
00:34:45
Yeah, I'm not my tummy's growling right now.
00:34:47
I'm not even exaggerating, but I want Have you had the Popeye's chicken sandwich before? Yes, man.
00:34:53
Like the week that it came out, I was, like, so pressed again when it's so good.
00:34:57
Like like man is.
00:34:59
But it looked like man is makes the sandwich e.
00:35:02
I don't like man.

00:35:24
Yeah, it has to be on. It tastes so good.
00:35:26
Well, do you know people have gone there like without it on it? Yeah, The first time I got I got it without the mayo And then, like the next time my mom got information something.
00:35:33
And I was like, Oh, there's May on it and she's like, Just don't worry about it is good.
00:35:36
And it was So you made the sandwich so much.
00:35:38
Yeah, I feel like it can't be managed.
00:35:40
It doesn't taste like it.
00:35:41
Get Manet's.
00:35:44
Yeah, I feel like it's not.
00:35:46
I think it is like a different things, like like like in few.
00:35:50
It's gonna be like something plus man, isn't it? Like it's not just straight up, man, because I never e Well, I think man is in a loss.
00:35:58
I think it's in like it might be a chick fil a soft.
00:36:00
Honestly, I think it might.
00:36:04
Well, it's because, like the texture, it's that Yeah.
00:36:08
Do you ****ier the original? I'll get the original.
00:36:11
Yeah, you're that.
00:36:12
I think I also know that I'll get a ****y but I get the original to the ****y was too ****y, I think.
00:36:17
Yeah, The ****y food Popeyes.
00:36:20
I don't like it that much, but all the models, that's really Yeah, man, I That's the best on, uh, did he maybe.
00:36:28
What other places? Besides, uh, besides City of Palm? Did you guys travel anywhere else on last season s? So we went to Florida into California for the Nike Pillows.
00:36:37
Oh, we went to Massachusetts on, but at the end of the season, we take a trip up to, like, this place called ***berland Maryland, which is really cool.
00:36:44
And I'm trying to think Do we go anywhere else nationally, I think the one with the Four places national, but yeah, yeah, You said only four places.
00:36:53
Not like I mean, is it usually more? It was not without a little bit of like, Easy is traveling season for you guys.
00:36:59
I think that's pretty like average.
00:37:00
Maybe sometimes it would go like one extra.
00:37:02
But other than that, like E.
00:37:05
Remember a few seasons ago like we did something like that and then at the beginning of season, we maybe take a trip like Chicago or something, Um, to sort of Chicago was out for a game or just for team bonding? Yeah, for a game like will play against public school up there like like a really good one.
00:37:20
Like or did a story when the school one of those types, schools like some Andi and we didn't want to come with the Maryland was I was for just, you know, fun trip.
00:37:30
Or was there also the game there as well? Way have a tournament up there called Alhambra.
00:37:34
It's pretty.
00:37:35
It's like a Catholic tournament with some of the teams like around the area.
00:37:38
But I was like the day like the day which will start games was or the day we got up there with the day that Corona hit like really big like right back down toe D. C. Again.
00:37:52
And that's what that was the West Day.
00:37:53
Like before quarantine and that kind of like, how were you guys any matter, what kind of whatever and did you get to do And maybe anything fun there, or would you really drive up and then drive back and didn't even get to stay tonight? Or I think we stayed the night in the morning that we had.
00:38:09
We had to go back, but yeah, all we did was practice.
00:38:11
And then after that way, had to go back home.
00:38:15
Man, where you guys really, uh, I'm sure.
00:38:17
Or at least were the seniors.
00:38:18
I get extremely upset about that outcome.
00:38:21
How you know, this kind of, you know, have last game even though, you know, some are going to college and a lot of stuff with a lot of them upset and where you really sat as well, we weren't They weren't like that upset.
00:38:31
They were disappointed, but it was like it is what it is.
00:38:33
We already finished their actual season like we just had, like, d c states. We just won that.
00:38:37
So I think, honestly, like they're probably, like, happier that they're like, we're not with a win.
00:38:41
When I was a pretty big wind and then you all the younger guys like, Yeah, as long as they're happy, we're happy.
00:38:45
So we just went back down s That's kind of like a bonus tournament.
00:38:50
Like it's not like.
00:38:51
So after your seat, I guess what I like is that a part of your real season? Technically, no.
00:38:56
Like, you have to get invited to it.
00:38:57
But we get invited to a basically every, like the top four teams in our conference get invited to it every year.
00:39:03
Yeah, the top four teams.
00:39:05
So would that be? Would that be you, Paul? The sixth of the Matha and Saint John? It's usually like those four every year.
00:39:16
Yeah. I don't know.
00:39:17
I don't I feel like someone told me.
00:39:18
Know someone might have told me about that.
00:39:20
But I'm not one hundred percent sure Eyes that, like, is there like a city tournament to? Yeah, there's a D. C. States tournament.
00:39:28
So, like we play against, like, ST John's in it because their from D.
00:39:31
C.
00:39:32
And then we play against, like, there's some D c.
00:39:33
Public schools as well.
00:39:35
Yeah.
00:39:36
What? Uh, who told me about that? But that's what I was kind of, uh, that's kind of learning about.
00:39:41
And, uh, again, you know, I'm aware you're a super super tough conference.
00:39:44
I mean, that's what makes it so difficult.
00:39:47
Just the competition, like year and year out.
00:39:50
Um, wcsc all the kids, like all the kids in the area, I really want to go to schools and W J. C.
00:39:55
So especially the math of like they Sometimes they have, like a summer league team of like, twenty something.
00:40:00
Kids like everyone, like in the area like everyone knows that the wcsc is a really tough conference.
00:40:05
Everyone wants to be in it.
00:40:06
So, yeah, it's just like the massive amount of talent that goes into it every year.
00:40:11
Like the leaves.
00:40:12
Pretty tough, like you never really know who's gonna be who so, like sometimes like some of the worst teams will be some of the best teams, just like crazy like there's really, like, no, like weak links in the conference, like there's some some teams like don't win them into games, but like they could always like, snag a game from like the team.
00:40:28
So and I'm assuming, um that are all the guys on your AU teams, they all kind of live in a different area? Or are they Gonzaga? Some of them like, Yeah, we've got a lot of kids like that are in that league.
00:40:44
But then we also got like a lot of public school kids, and then we actually have a kid from up in like Charlotte's Villa, Virginia.
00:40:50
Like right by the university.
00:40:56
He's a dog on that job.
00:40:58
Other than that, I don't think we've got anyone from that far out of area.
00:41:02
We have this new kid named Sasha Woodman, who is also really good.
00:41:05
I forget where he's from them, but he's going to school like now he's going supposed to look in the area, so I just wanna know.
00:41:12
It turns out just we're going to see that a you because I know a you There is also, I mean, really good to get saw.
00:41:20
Its you guys, your team.
00:41:21
It's team thrill, right? That's called there from Baltimore.
00:41:25
I'm all star team.
00:41:26
Take a Baltimore is in the d m V, though, right? I mean, they really like it's like, weird, like if you have to it from like the d M v A.
00:41:33
Like they don't consider Baltimore father d M.
00:41:35
Okay, so it's not not team throw, then your takeover take.
00:41:41
The takeover, then, is what's called Prospect.
00:41:44
You.
00:41:45
That's called Team Durant.
00:41:46
Prospect is a new team, but yeah, we're going to.
00:41:49
But I feel like, you know, I'm probably missing out of team, but I guess you know you guys are all very solid.
00:41:54
I know everyone's.
00:41:55
I think every kind of teams always like mixed up with all the kids of much of her schools.
00:41:58
Then maybe it kind of builds.
00:42:00
Not yeah, and the culture that makes sense.
00:42:01
Or I guess, family atmosphere, where everyone is kinda all friends off the court and then on the court, you know, everyone's kinda killing it.
00:42:08
Then you know all the court again.
00:42:09
You guys are so friends.
00:42:11
Yeah, it's a It's a big thing like down here like everyone.
00:42:14
Yeah, like you put it perfectly like everyone's like, really friendly off the court, like everyone basically knows.
00:42:20
Everyone, um, like if you play basketball like it's a really easy way to build friends when d.
00:42:24
M.
00:42:25
V like there's so many kids that I know just through basketball and yeah, everyone kind of makes friends that way, and I never realized like the public schools are good as well in terms off athletic.
00:42:36
So just why they, like every I guess team the D M v like stacked Like How? How is that possible? E don't know.
00:42:43
There's just, like a really good amount of talent, man.
00:42:45
Like, got some pretty good public pools around here, especially in Baltimore.
00:42:49
Polly like team from Boston, actually.
00:42:51
Just be I m g this year, all right? The schools called Poly.
00:42:55
Yeah, Polly like p a like Paul and I p o l i Well, that sounds very familiar.
00:43:04
Well, I always sort out afterwards, but, um, how is what are some of the goals for you and your team next year are this year everyone's really hungry to win a championship.
00:43:14
Honestly, like, I think we're gonna really like solid team this year.
00:43:18
Everyone like the chemistry will be Devin Juniors on this team.
00:43:23
Or were we supposed to be having that amount? And then, yeah, everyone just wants the team to, like, kind of glued together.
00:43:29
Bond, just focus.
00:43:31
Hard to get the championship.
00:43:32
Gonna have a and now, losing a guy like Terrance Williams who's not committed to Michigan.
00:43:39
I mean, I know he was bawling out City of problems.
00:43:42
I mean, I never heard of him.
00:43:44
Someone's out turn. And I was like, Wow, this guy is crazy.
00:43:46
Good.
00:43:47
So again, you're losing a guy like Terrance Williams.
00:43:48
What do you expect your role to be, uh, for the season? And you think it's gonna change it all? Yeah, definitely.
00:43:54
Last year I was kind of like a backup.
00:43:56
I would like someone got in foul trouble in the starting lineup.
00:43:59
One of the guards, I would come in for a little bit, just trying to, like, make something happened, Then just play my minutes.
00:44:05
Honestly, sixteen years this year, we had we had.
00:44:11
Terrence is going to Michigan.
00:44:12
We had Chuck, who's going to Butler.
00:44:13
We had Miles is going to Vanderbilt, and then we had a Georgetown Georgetown baseball player who's in that lineup, and then we had two guys that are going D two and D three.
00:44:23
So all those guys really talented, really like special parts of our program.
00:44:27
So yeah, definitely.
00:44:28
I think my role is toe step up this year, be one of the three main scoring options and just do what I can dio shoot.
00:44:36
Makes there's shots playing good defense, be a leader.
00:44:40
Um, would you say that you were You said, you know, you were just going to someone the starting lineup with foul trouble, But would you maybe say like, your baby, a certain player you will be shadowing? Yeah, Carl, I'd say I was shadowing like junior mints, who's also like in my class.
00:44:54
He's like a two three guard.
00:44:56
And then Carlos Hub was like the senior that I would shadows well, like whenever he got into foul trouble.
00:45:00
I'll going for a little bit.
00:45:03
And I mean, you know, we were shadowing a senior like, uh, Carlos Hub.
00:45:06
I mean, just you gotta have a leadership role on you, And is there anything that he's kind of tall you or something's off from his game? Or so, like, he acts the person that you want to take away from him? Yeah, he's a really good shooter, like I aspired myself, like, be a really good shooter.
00:45:20
He tried the best shooter on our team.
00:45:22
He made a lot of really tough shots, was really consistent.
00:45:25
Three point shooter, um and yeah, his brother is actually the Prentice up.
00:45:32
So yeah, I took like he was a really high energy guy.
00:45:35
Like he would always talk, like, get us really hyped on and off the court.
00:45:39
Very cool guys.
00:45:40
So, yeah, it was pretty is an honor to shadow him, Honest.
00:45:43
And, uh, I don't think I mentioned this in the first interview, but I do know I used to math.
00:45:48
I'm pretty sure the coach, like a lot of those guys are in the NBA.
00:45:51
I think they all started playing JV basketball, which are, I would still say, like, that's not really common if you're an elite prospect when you're not gonna play JV basketball.
00:45:59
But you did play JV basketball.
00:46:01
So how were you able to go from playing JV basketball to now being a three star prospect in the class of twenty twenty two? Honestly, like E, like the fact that I played JV basketball really says a lot of championship, So I guess that says something about it.
00:46:23
But I feel like if I went toe another school like in the air, like a public school, I have been one of the best president varsity, so I just think that says a lot about the W K. C.
00:46:30
And yeah, it was really fun.
00:46:31
I really took a year off just so, like, get my game ready, focused.
00:46:35
I was leading scoring on team and even, like in the wcsc, like some of the jobs and the expertise stuff.
00:46:40
But the math of JP scene felt like it was like a full on Busses, and they're really good.
00:46:44
So but yeah, I really appreciate it.
00:46:47
Like getting to take a year off.
00:46:49
I'd say from like, Not like like high level competition.
00:46:52
Like getting to, like, really have a year like myself.
00:46:54
Focus on my skills against, like, some lower level competition.
00:46:57
But honestly, just like yeah, get better as a player work out for sure.
00:47:02
And you know, you said the math is kind of like a Farsi T even with their JV team.
00:47:06
Did they treat like do all the school ST James's game Super Seriously, Um, is there usually a lot of packed crowds and is there Is there even a JV championship for you guys up there? I I wish we had a JV term I thought would be really fun, but no way have, like, we kind of end the season when the varsity would start up would start playoffs.
00:47:23
Um, but yeah, like after? Like since since it goes like freshman on the JV game.
00:47:28
So, like, we get, like, a crowd for like, um, before, like, the varsity games.
00:47:32
Especially like the big bars game.
00:47:33
So, like, I was playing like a pack house, we played one of the teams in our league called McNamara.
00:47:38
And yeah, we had, like, a full on crowd, like both sides.
00:47:40
Like screaming at each other.
00:47:41
So it was pretty, Um, I'm sure for you, like I probably wasn't your first experience.
00:47:47
Like in front of pack route.
00:47:48
We're gonna be any guys on that team where they were like, Whoa, like, why all these people here? Like maybe those guys that you know, might even make it to the varsity level.
00:47:54
It all with a little surprise.
00:47:57
I think I was the I was the only kid to make it that varsity the next year from that JV team.
00:48:04
And yeah, and then, um, but a kid there's a couple of kids from like that that team that played JV again, they're gonna make the team this year.
00:48:12
Oh, actually, no. There was one kid.
00:48:14
Are are big man.
00:48:15
Actually was on JB that year in the next year in Boston.
00:48:19
Well, they may be all, like, surprise.
00:48:21
Like, why would you want my game? I also JV team.
00:48:23
It's just freshmen sop****res.
00:48:25
Or could you be senior on JB? No, it was It was just freshman sop****re.
00:48:30
Okay, so maybe I need those swelling.
00:48:34
They're gonna be this kind surprise.
00:48:36
Like, why are all these people here I am? My games a little weird.
00:48:40
Yeah. I felt some of that from them.
00:48:42
Like they're like, Oh, dang.
00:48:43
Like it's packed house.
00:48:44
Like I didn't expect that.
00:48:46
Yeah, well, why was there a packed house for your JV game? Especially the math game is a really big deal in our area, like their, um, their gym seats.
00:48:55
So many people.
00:48:56
So like, and it's really big, like it always sells out.
00:48:59
So, yeah, before our game, everyone's trying to get in.
00:49:02
Everyone kind of catches like halftime or the end of the game.
00:49:05
So I'd say there's probably, like, three thousand people at a at the end of a J. B again.
00:49:11
Andi, I mean that? Excuse me.
00:49:13
So it's I mean, I know it's not gonna ever for the season.
00:49:15
I doubt it will be with, uh, too many fans.
00:49:18
But I just love you know, my uncle's barber games there because I'm the I always feel like even though no one's giving like no one cares about me.
00:49:24
I feel like all the tensions, like me being the announcer, like, I feel like I'm kind of like the spotlights on me.
00:49:29
So when there's a pack game, you know I'm playing the music.
00:49:32
I like saying this stuff in a big microphone.
00:49:36
So if you kind of feel the same way, way walk out, you know, music comments packed with your students and parents and all yourself.
00:49:44
I mean, how does that energy field? Yeah, I get exactly what you're saying.
00:49:47
It just it feels awesome.
00:49:48
Honestly, Like I love that about being on varsity.
00:49:51
It sucks that, like, I can't do that this year, like, I was really excited for my junior year.
00:49:55
Especially now that I'm gonna be, like in a starting role, like I would be really fun.
00:49:58
But it is what sorry you got from JV for being a three star prospect when you consider you're doing a lot harder than most other guys.
00:50:14
Yeah, a little bit like it was a different route.
00:50:17
Honestly, like I want to say it wasn't that much of a good JV experience is kind of like the experience of being a coach's son like you get a lot of flak for that from kids that aren't even like is good as you were, just like kids.
00:50:27
That kind of you get like a lot of Doubters from that.
00:50:29
So it's cool to like proofs and kids and wrong.
00:50:32
And I'm just ready for, like this season really embrace my role on, Yeah, just prove them.
00:50:36
I should be a three four star prospect and sticking it.
00:50:40
You know those coaches sons being I mean, there's so many others are, I guess, you know, there's not that many, but at the same time, there's a ton of kids where you know my dad even even like directly, you know, everyone's kind of Yeah, well, his dad's the coaches.
00:50:51
Why he's like this.
00:50:53
Um, do you? Maybe you and your dad, because I I didn't know this until I watched um, another interview with you.
00:50:59
So do you guys maybe try to keep it a little bit low key? Or has that kind of, ah have that kind of work? I mean, honestly, like, I can't really escape it like everyone knows me, like as like, being Coach Turner, son, like my parents will be like, Oh, like little like That's your dad's like, like a legend or something like that.
00:51:15
So, yeah, everyone kind of knows that.
00:51:17
It's kind of hard to like, Keep it low key like he's one of the best small Gator coaches the year twenty sixteen like, it's kind of hard to keep a low profile of that.
00:51:28
That's kind of funny, because I had no clue like that.
00:51:31
Your dad, even like you probably saw you two guys on paper.
00:51:34
Two things would have been like and probably not related.
00:51:36
Like, I don't know, I didn't think like that, but yes.
00:51:40
So how how are you kind of ableto deal with all that stuff and just try to build your legacy? Um, yeah.
00:51:47
I mean, I think I've done a pretty good job.
00:51:50
Just kind of got a like brush it off, You know, you get some my daddy's ball comments like when you're on the court.
00:51:55
Other than that, though, it's whatever you just gotta play through it.
00:51:58
It's kind of cool, like shots.
00:52:00
Um, kids up.
00:52:02
Is that what happens when you're playing it? Like so all the kids, I guess some other school, like they do their research and just kind of stuff that you you know, when you're playing an away game, Yeah, like I feel like I was especially would have gotten this year because we're gonna be a starter on varsity.
00:52:15
But like, when I would play JV like I got a I got a lot of those comments, like, why don't you on varsity? Your dad's coach? A So you have stuff like that? I don't know, I guess is your s maybe advice.
00:52:26
Any other coach sons out there, they're just, you know, really want to take the time.
00:52:33
Another day, they'll call you a coaches on.
00:52:34
You're obviously doing something, right? So, yeah, just see playing.
00:52:38
Keep your head forward and just put them off.
00:52:41
And is there may be something that you wanna do this tough solidify like, Hey, you know I'm not a coach.
00:52:46
Turner's son or whatever they call your coach t.
00:52:49
Or, you know, the goat coach something.
00:52:51
Whatever, whatever.
00:52:52
Whatever they call your your coach.
00:52:53
Do you wanna like What do you want to do this? To make sure that people know like I'm on the coach's son? I'm I'm Jerry Turner.
00:53:00
Yeah, I just got to stand out this year, I guess.
00:53:02
Just show them what I can dio show my three point ability, my defensive ability.
00:53:07
Just play as good as I can.
00:53:09
Just kind of got to separate myself.
00:53:10
I'm a little bit That's awesome.
00:53:13
And which schools that have been reaching out to you the most? Um so I actually had a zoom called with Western Michigan yesterday.
00:53:20
Recent schools have been talking to me.
00:53:22
Coach Larranaga texted me from Miami.
00:53:25
Wake Forest texting makeup.
00:53:27
They call me actually to the Paul.
00:53:30
They offered me a while back and they still keep in touch.
00:53:32
G W One of my first offers.
00:53:34
They keep in touch a lot, and VCU picked up a little bit.
00:53:39
Richmond.
00:53:40
Yeah, a lot of East Coast schools and Stanford actually have a couple weeks ago is well, so I'm waiting for them to talk to me again, but yeah, Good amount of, like, mid majors.
00:53:48
The high major schools have been talking to me.
00:53:51
Yeah, we definitely need you to take that, uh, that official or unofficial visits in Miami, Uh, for sure.
00:53:56
Even though even though I'm not planning to go in there, I mean, still, you know, that's my or how do you think I guess.
00:54:05
Coach Jim, How did how did you find out about Gonzaga? Because obviously to find about it out about it, to recruit Chris like So how does he kind of know, like, Hey, this school has a lot of good kids.
00:54:14
I should always look Pinto go into their games or look at their prospects.
00:54:18
I mean, yeah, he's been he's been coaching game for a really long time, I think.
00:54:22
Probably his research.
00:54:23
He saw a lot of our like players in a sec.
00:54:26
Um, a lot of those big time conferences, but Chris was like a really, like, good prospect on the EU circuit, especially with team take over.
00:54:32
So it was really easy for him to get his name out there, and, yeah, just a really good talent.
00:54:38
Yeah, but you want to say Chris Lights was the reason he didn't put desire on the map right like that when I was because of him.
00:54:43
We've got, we've got We had a lot of really good teams, Like, I'd say in two thousand eight was one of our best teams of all time.
00:54:50
They went thirty four and one we had.
00:54:53
They had a guy that went to Princeton Guy that was getting heavily recruited by, like, Georgetown, Villanova.
00:54:58
He actually end up going, Um, Harvard.
00:55:01
And then we had Tyler Thornton with the Duke.
00:55:02
We had a Richmond guy.
00:55:04
We had really good players on that team, but they're probably the best teams to come out of the D M V area.
00:55:08
Yeah, I think maybe a chance could because I know Jim Lana, coach at Georgia Mason.
00:55:14
That's in Virginia, I think, Right, Yes, I'm not close it.
00:55:18
It's a d C.
00:55:19
But we could always be something.
00:55:21
Something to Yeah, it's, um, D m v ties.
00:55:24
Yeah, and I don't know if you could tell me this, but when Stanford reached out, only because this kid told me this one.
00:55:29
Stanford, did they ask you for your transcriptions? That kind of kind of.
00:55:33
That was one of the first things they did ask me for my transcript.
00:55:36
Yeah, because I know that's what that's what the other kids told me.
00:55:39
He said they had him, like, send this stuff first.
00:55:42
Um, I guess most glass for your grades.
00:55:43
I'm sure your grades are great.
00:55:45
Uh, do you ever think, like, what if my grades weren't bad? It's like it's like a like, Are they gonna Is that gonna be acceptable with them, Like a couple of like bees gonna turn them off.
00:55:54
So Well, I think I think that be.
00:55:56
I think if you have, like, straight B's, I think they'd be kind of, uh, impressed.
00:56:00
But I'm just saying, Like, just imagine what Have you had a baby like de season? AFS.
00:56:06
What about? Imagine how How different.
00:56:09
Like what? Like I just want you to feel if a school like hey, you know how your grades I mean, like, like, even even wasn't stand for, like, whatever.
00:56:18
Like, that would be crazy.
00:56:19
Yeah, Especially if they give you a Stanford actual transcript like, Oh, I have season ds like that would suck.
00:56:24
Yeah.
00:56:26
Yeah.
00:56:28
And you know, I guess you You talk about schools that reached out to most recently all those kind of same schools that have been, uh, showing you a lot of heavy interest.
00:56:35
Yeah, those those have been the main schools, Like showing me a lot of heavy interest.
00:56:38
Uh, some local school have been showing interest, like Mount ST Mary's.
00:56:41
But those were all the main school.
00:56:42
Those schools that are listed have been showing me the most interest.
00:56:46
And you said you got off the zoom with Western Michigan, right? You know, Western Michigan Division.
00:56:51
A lot of good interest.
00:56:52
I really like talking to the coaching staff.
00:56:54
Yeah.
00:56:55
How is that? How How that's gonna go for you.
00:56:57
It was really cool.
00:56:58
Surprising. The campus is beautiful. Honestly.
00:57:00
Showed me, like, around all their facilities.
00:57:03
Their locker room is really cool.
00:57:04
They just remodeled it.
00:57:05
Their housing they're working on, like a new, uh, project for like like the southern like part of their school.
00:57:11
So, yeah, it's It's a really nice place up there.
00:57:13
I wanna Yeah.
00:57:17
I could definitely, uh, one of their players I interviewed before he just come committed.
00:57:20
They're actually like a hero.
00:57:22
He could have their like, probably a few months ago, at least.
00:57:25
But yeah, I mean, he seems to really like the school.
00:57:28
And, you know, we could stop talking recruitment.
00:57:30
Let's talk about team takeover.
00:57:32
So how did you get involved with the team? Take over? Yeah, they're, like, really one of the premier teams in, like our area.
00:57:39
When I was really little like I played for another team called Maryland's finest, so we were pretty good.
00:57:43
We won a couple of national championships on the EU circuit, but team take it has always been around like they have some many teams and, like the elementary and middle school age groups.
00:57:52
And when you finally get the high school like, we're like one of the only you RBL teams in the area.
00:57:56
So, yeah, like they're just a major program that got put out like a lot of pros and stuff and maybe other.
00:58:04
Any teammates either from Gonzaga or from team take over that you maybe wanna team up within the next level.
00:58:12
Um, honestly, if I ever got the opportunity to post like any of my AU team, and I would love that, but probably specifically like the kids that play play for my high school like Devin.
00:58:21
Think it's legitimate star point guard and ah, premier like wing.
00:58:24
I would love to the feminist around in college.
00:58:28
Um, you know, even though you said I wanna play with them in college, will there be any guys where you don't wanna be friends with them? Like, But you don't wanna play against them in college instead? Because I know I mean, those air that might even be more fun than playing with somebody who is playing against them.
00:58:41
How many guys like your friends with that you wanna play against? Not with Yeah.
00:58:45
I mean, I'd love to play like any of my friends, like in college, Any of my AU teammates.
00:58:49
Any of my high school teammates, Like we have got a matchup.
00:58:51
That would be really fun.
00:58:53
All right.
00:58:54

00:02:30
So my first question for you is, uh I saw you playing the cross.
00:02:33
So are you still playing the cross? Yeah. Yes, sir.
00:02:37
I've been playing off since first grade.
00:02:38
Them actually the game tonight.
00:02:40
Okay.
00:02:41
And I mean, are you excited for that game or what's your What's your mentality going into this lacrosse games? It is in a big game or what? What what What even is the importance of this game? It's like So it's like this second game out of our league so far.
00:02:53
I mean, I'm just excited to, like, get plenty of my guys again.
00:02:55
We've been playing like all summer, went to a couple of tournaments, got some w So I'm just I'm just excited to, like, get back with him.
00:03:02
Like across to me is like, kind of like a freeing sport, like it kind of takes away from some of the stress of basketball.
00:03:07
Maybe it's just like another like hobby to do.
00:03:09
Basically, it's just really fun and like if I could do anything I can to, like, help my guys get recruited in the cost that on that team, I'll do it.
00:03:16
I'm just really just playing for them at this point.
00:03:20
Are are you playing for your school, or is it for a club team right now? This for my clubs here.
00:03:26
Okay, but you play for both.
00:03:28
Yeah, I played for both this year.
00:03:30
If I wouldn't have gotten hurt, I probably been on varsity.
00:03:32
And our club school are our team in our school.
00:03:35
Gonzaga is like, last year they were red tops in the country going into the season.
00:03:39
So we got some pretty good recruits.
00:03:42
Also means that you're probably like you.
00:03:45
You could go.
00:03:46
Do you wanna come across then? Because if you you said you said you were going to play on your team.
00:03:51
But you didn't.
00:03:52
Yeah, I would have been on the team this year, but I got hurt, and then I just Yeah, I mean, I feel like I got a d one or if I, like, made it more of a priority.
00:04:04
I probably do also for your soft.
00:04:07
Yeah.
00:04:08
So for your sop****re year, you could apply it.
00:04:10
But then for your junior year, you're probably playing varsity.
00:04:12
Yeah, and you don't think you'd be able to go? Do you want even on the like if you make the top three team in the country or whatever, and then you obviously like cable going division one, maybe Really, like, five percent more effort because, yeah, probably like, tough in itself.
00:04:27
E probably.
00:04:28
Do you want to put on a show? Have I have any school that you asked you like? Oh, you know, you come to our school? Well, actually, you played both sports.
00:04:36
I'm like that, Um it's been like something I've been like, interested in.
00:04:40
I haven't really talked about many colleges about it, though.
00:04:43
Look, they're full on, like, full on basketball.
00:04:46
But I mean, when I went on a Notre Dame visit last year, I actually, like had a really good conversation with across Canada, so it was pretty cool.
00:04:53
I was at Notre Dame.
00:04:54
Visit was, I don't know.
00:04:55
That was an unofficial visit right when I was unofficial, something that was set up between my coach and coach Bray up there.
00:05:01
I got like, a tour.
00:05:02
That's watch them play against Bowling green football and watched their practice.
00:05:06
It was really cool.
00:05:07
And I was at, like coincidence.
00:05:08
Tell you what the um, a lacrosse coaches, they have that set up for you.
00:05:12
They have that set up for you.
00:05:14
Okay, so? So they were, like, seriously interested? I guess.
00:05:17
I think so.
00:05:19
Coach Barry talks to me like, Yes, He said he's really excited to recruit me this year.
00:05:24
Okay, well, that's Ah, they have a good lacrosse team.
00:05:27
Er, they've got a really good across them up.
00:05:28
They're really good program.
00:05:30
Okay.
00:05:31
You know, I want to do you consider kind of stuff.
00:05:34
You consider yourself a relax boy or guy or whatever they say.
00:05:42
It's just bigger. Pretty reality.
00:05:44
It's funny, I would like, but What do you mean? Like, it's like a personality trait kind of thing.
00:05:52
Like, really high energy.
00:05:53
Like, really loud hip all the time.
00:05:55
But it's just like something you need.
00:05:56
Like if you wanna put across, you wanna be on a good team like, needed, like kinda like master energy.
00:06:00
Like B b.
00:06:01
Really? Like loud, high energy.
00:06:02
Just be ready toe Like although, like run through a wall.
00:06:06
Yeah, and run through a wall. Sounds pretty painful.
00:06:09
I know Lacrosse pretty painful sport.
00:06:11
So, you know, have you ever gotten I guess what we call like, stick stick checks.
00:06:15
And that was called So I played defense, so I'm like, more like doing that's like, other kids.
00:06:22
But I've gotta feel like nasty starts, like my arms and my legs.
00:06:26
So it's not fun.
00:06:27
It's painful, but you just gotta fight there.
00:06:30
Uh, is it like that painful that you really like you, like, extremely gotta fight through it? Or can you kind of, you know, just keep playing or Yeah, it just depends on its, like, part of the game, like, Depends on, Like where you get hit honestly, like once I'm, like, last, um, last event actually, like, broke my thumb I got slash, like, really hard on my thumb broken.
00:06:50
So honestly, the path is where you get hit.
00:06:53
And since you're the one who hitting have you ever hit someone that they got hurt and did you feel bad at all? I mean, both of the times, but I mean, you kind of feel bad, but then, like all the other part is like, it's like, kind of part of the game, so it depends on yeah, just in sports in general, Like, I just I don't know.
00:07:13
For some reason I'm like, thinking about it.
00:07:15
I feel like I wouldn't feel bad at the same time.
00:07:17
I'm thinking, like if I ever heard somebody, no matter what sport it waas I just was so bad.
00:07:22
I mean, like especially was about the guy Get, like, peeled off and, uh, whatever.
00:07:26
Like on a structure or something like that.
00:07:28
Like, I think that's, like, super embarrassing ****.
00:07:32
That's a like some kids have been like a in the little statue e don't know when I was younger, like all the s so cool like, Oh, my God.
00:07:42
I e a little, uh, wait.
00:07:47
When you guys were little people would, like, use it like they were like flax.
00:07:49
Like a lot of people, they hurt.
00:07:52
Sure, I know what that crosses A.
00:07:55
That's an interesting I never knew that was I was a thing that's crazy.
00:08:00
The the cool sport.
00:08:04
I mean, cool, little bit, a little bit suss, But when you're when you're playing across everybody, I guess you know, slash someone what's what are.
00:08:12
Do you like thinking all you just kind of like, Let me just hit him as hard as I can or let me try getting the ball out or what's What's the thought process? You're just trying to get the ball honestly, because I'm on defense like that's the main objective.
00:08:24
Just get the ball back for your offense, trying to get it clear.
00:08:27
Clear it down.
00:08:28
Yeah. Makes him highlight place.
00:08:31
Yeah, you said make highlight plays.
00:08:32
Have you ever made a highlight play before? On the cross on? Are those are they noticeable? The wash with the earth, Like in football where you have to replay it.
00:08:40
Almost. Just notice what you did.
00:08:44
Um, there's it depends on like like, there's only a lot of, like, obvious.
00:08:47
Like how that plays me like a big hit.
00:08:49
I strip take away and get a ground ball.
00:08:51
They're the opposite side of the field.
00:08:53
It honestly depends.
00:08:54
So yeah, that's pretty pretty obvious how that's all right.
00:08:58
And and I guess what? What got you into playing across like What was that big factor? Oh, man. Yeah.
00:09:12
Oh, yeah.
00:09:13
I can hear you did freeze first.
00:09:15
Okay? Yeah, yeah, um, when I was little, like my elementary school in my middle school, like it's a really big cross school, like a lot of players going to that school.
00:09:24
And, yeah, head coaches, like the local club program, was actually head coaches like another really good across school in my hair called Georgetown Prep.
00:09:32
And, like he told me on my dad like I should really get to the game like there's not that many minority athletes and like, it's like it's like a growing game.
00:09:39
So all my friends played and I just really wanted to try on playing.
00:09:43
Yeah, I just ended a fall in love.
00:09:46
Yeah, it sounds, uh, sounds pretty cool.
00:09:48
And how are you able to play both sports and how that has ever been a conflict before? Um, it depends like so since I played basketball like at a higher level, I'd say, like, take it like from like a you team up or that probably go like a practice for them instead of like, practice for the cross.
00:10:09
Um, so this some conflict, but like I say during the like season, like we'll be doing maybe like one tournament at the very end for basketball that might conflict with the cross.
00:10:20
And I'd probably end up just going across, okay? And have you may be like, do coaches get mad at you when you have to pick, you know, once for over the other.
00:10:28
Like I know I know these for basketball.
00:10:30
Like, if I have to miss like that, I think the coaches like this.
00:10:33
I think it gets mad regardless of what the excuse is like.
00:10:36
I just like they're always so like mad.
00:10:38
And you miss practice.
00:10:39
So do coaches, like, get upset with you.
00:10:41
You know, when you're missing on ah, practice whether you know you're missing a lacrosse progress of basketball or vice versa? No, they understand.
00:10:47
Like I make it like, known to them that I've got to sports going on.
00:10:51
So as long as I keep them on notice, that all right, everything Yeah.
00:10:55
And do you think I may be playing lacrosse has helped you in basketball.
00:11:00
It all? Yeah, definitely.
00:11:01
It's really, like affected, like towards me playing.
00:11:03
I'm, like, a little aggressive and I played basketball, like try to, like, make good place on defense and stuff.
00:11:08
And so since I'm like a really aggressive lacrosse player like it's really helped out with my footwork and just like how I make plays on the basketball court on the defense of them.
00:11:16
And when you say get aggressive in basketball or do you Do you have to get a lot of fouls? Or if not, I mean, how are you able to play defense at aggressive way without getting too many fouls? I'll just keep my energy up.
00:11:28
I'm really high energy guy wanna play defense, especially this somewhere.
00:11:31
Like I've been doing a really good job of doing that.
00:11:33
Um, taking charges, just making like high energy plays, plays that really like boosted team's momentum, not necessarily fouling.
00:11:40
I think I've only found out of, like three or four games in my entire career, but I don't really get that many fouls.
00:11:45
I just tried toe, do what I can on defense.
00:11:48
Just make hustle.
00:11:49
Bliss.
00:11:50
Yeah, I'm glad used to take charges because nobody takes charges.
00:11:53
May like it, z unbelievable.
00:11:55
I mean, how are you able toe? How are you able to learn? You know it's important, take charges and how are you able to develop that skill in that mindset? where, uh, you know, I'm about, uh maybe hurt myself.
00:12:05
But, hey, it's OK because a lot of kids, you know, they just can't just can't grasp that.
00:12:09
Yeah, um I don't know.
00:12:11
You just, like, kind of in the play develops it just kind of like a natural instinct, cause when I was little, I like, kind of like I made it advantages.
00:12:18
I wasn't like I wasn't that tall like I wasn't as tall as I am now.
00:12:21
Clearly, I was like, I was kind on the smaller side.
00:12:24
So whenever I get, like, match up with a big in the paint, I'd make sure to, like, use their way to my advantage because when we were little like, they would always just go head down and try to drive.
00:12:33
So I would just try to get that, like, initial contact, And I would just, like, flop honestly.
00:12:38
And I get the charge every time when you say little how How how little were you? Um, when I was like, I was always, like, kind of like the taller end of my class E h h Oh, I'd say when I was like, like fourth grade, when I was like, nine.
00:12:56
Ten.
00:12:57
You were taking artist and fourth grade.
00:12:58
Yeah, I've been taking charges for a long time.
00:13:00
Like I was a hustle player.
00:13:01
Like when I was really little since.
00:13:02
Like, second grade, actually.
00:13:05
I mean, how did you even I don't even I might know what a charge was, but I definitely didn't know how they took.
00:13:09
Like when they would do a charge.
00:13:10
I would be like, How did they do that? How did you How did you know how to take a charge in fourth grade? I mean, that is something that I've never heard of before.
00:13:18
I don't know. It was just like an instinct.
00:13:20
Honestly, I saw some place, like on heat or something.
00:13:22
I was like, I wanna do that like, and my coaches would encourage it, So yeah, I just do it.
00:13:27
Um, were you playing across in fourth grade as well? Yeah.
00:13:31
I've been planning all this since first grade.
00:13:32
I don't think I've ever taken a year off.
00:13:34
Oh, yeah, I think I think my theory is that is, that may be because you're playing across.
00:13:38
So you're just getting hit by a stick like, Oh, it's a stick getting back to me or a person to get to pick the person, uh, running into me.
00:13:46
I mean, kind of faking a ah fall.
00:13:48
I think that might be the factor.
00:13:51
That's my little theory, but that that is unbelievable.
00:13:54
In fourth grade, taking charges, that is something really cool.
00:13:57
Yeah, across really tough ones. Yeah.
00:13:59
Stuff like that.
00:14:01
Yeah.
00:14:02
And I know, at least for, uh, I know that my mom or my parents times they kind of tell me, like, you know, don't don't get laid on the alliance sometimes because, you know, you're obviously not being paid to play basketball.
00:14:12
I know.
00:14:13
Neither am I.
00:14:14
So how maybe your parents like taking charge? Something bad happens or standing on the cross, Or how are you able to make sure you stay safe is Well, um, honestly, they've never really had a problem with it.
00:14:27
As long as I'm just playing the game.
00:14:29
That's all they really care about, as they just wanted to do the best I can for my team.
00:14:34
Yeah, so I cannot get over a charge of fourth.
00:14:36
That is crazy, But do you usually take a charge of game in high school game.
00:14:40
I've been trying to make that a priority this summer.
00:14:42
I think I've taken a charge out of the six games my A team has played out taking a charging five and how may be any schools when they kind of you talk to you.
00:14:51
They said, like, yeah, you know, we just love that you take Chargers and, you know, just play basketball, I guess.
00:14:55
The right way.
00:14:56
Yeah, I talked to a couple of college coaches about like, if that's how one of my games one I'll talk about taking charge and I get really excited about that.
00:15:02
So it's pretty cool thing to do.
00:15:05
Yeah, you should have somebody put that in a in a mix tape.
00:15:07
Actually, that I mean, that I cannot get I would ask the guys who would talk to them like they're like, Yeah, I'm good.
00:15:14
This this and I'm like they say, no, I'm gonna defense.
00:15:17
So I go detailed charges, they're like, Yeah, that's like the one thing I'm like.
00:15:21
I mean, that's that.
00:15:23
Like, if you take the charges, you're gonna be elite like that is going to separate you from some of the other people.
00:15:28
Yeah, I charge before I got the wind knocked out of me.
00:15:31
That was so I think the kid hated me.
00:15:33
It was in practice.
00:15:34
It was a good charging drill on the kid.
00:15:36
I don't know what I did to him, but no one ever took the charge that hard.
00:15:41
He literally ran into May.
00:15:43
It was terrible.
00:15:45
That's funny.
00:15:46
I mean, it's funny, but I don't like I don't know what I did to the kid on. I asked me afterwards.
00:15:50
I'm like, Seriously, he's like, Do you play basketball? I'm like, no one.
00:15:54
No one did it that hard.
00:15:55
And it was the drill where they have you held the ball and kind of shoved into the person, and they shoved it into me.
00:16:01
So fat or not fast, like powerful.
00:16:04
He was like, pushing it into me.
00:16:06
It was crazy.
00:16:11
And now you hear me, right? Yeah.
00:16:17
Oh, yeah.
00:16:18
I just wanna also make sure, But anyways, we talked about a lot more about Gonzaga, not prep, but Gonzaga High School.
00:16:25
Or it was like a college high school.
00:16:28
Yeah, Yeah, inside a college high school.
00:16:29
Yeah, I'm glad.
00:16:30
I'm glad I learned that, but all right, I mean playing a Gonzaga high school.
00:16:35
What makes that program so legendary? We've got a lot of really high major guys that have came through like there's so many.
00:16:42
Like, I feel like, unspoken about people that have really come through Gonzaga like, But we have so many high major talent, like we've got Tyler Thornton, who was the back up of Kyrie Irving, and when he got hurt, he kind of embraced the starting role.
00:16:54
We've got the person who probably like the clutches shot instead of a history.
00:16:57
The game winner from Villanova, Chris Jenkins.
00:17:00
And then I got like a bunch of on the next year, his like, there's like they've got, like, a really good story, like kids like, kind of like adoptive brother like neighbor who's on North Carolina.
00:17:08
They won the championship next year.
00:17:09
We've got so many guys like we've got so many guys and uh in the college right now that are like High Manager.
00:17:14
We've got Terrence Williams got Prentice Hub.
00:17:17
Chris likes we've always pushed out like, really high major talent, and it seems like you know, a ton of history about your school's basketball program.
00:17:25
I mean, how do you know all this information? Is the problem with the school of a class like the history of basketball Gonzaga high school? Or how do you know this, uh, information on the on your school's basketball programs? History.
00:17:35
I mean, my dad was the coach, so I basically grown up like Gonzaga.
00:17:39
He's been head coach there for about twenty years and so on.
00:17:44
Do you think so? Were you one of those kids were like, after the game, You always locker room, you always in the floor and all that stuff.
00:17:52
Yeah.
00:17:53
Yeah.
00:17:54
What's it kind of like being one of those kids? Um, I mean, it's it's cool.
00:17:59
Like it's really good experience you, like, kind of make relationships with, like all your your dad's old players.
00:18:04
Like I still like, I'm in connection with some of the guys.
00:18:07
Like I even, like, work out like my one of my main workout guys, one of my dad's ex players.
00:18:11
So pretty cool.
00:18:12
Make a lot of connections that way, I guess.
00:18:15
Yeah, I don't know.
00:18:16
Did it really a surprise face at some point right before? During while I ask, the question didn't make a funny face while I ask the question, I'll start the past broken pencil.
00:18:27
Last wiles.
00:18:28
I thought I thought it was like a pencil that couldn't be broken.
00:18:31
So I was, like, moving around.
00:18:33
I guess I was broken.
00:18:34
Um, yeah, I remember that was crazy.
00:18:38
But again, Um, so with your data being the coach, you know each other earlier? Um, well, maybe the biggest lesson that he's taught you um, just the focus on the next play.
00:18:49
I used to have a problem when I was younger with, like, I would make a mistake and I would let it, like, stand my head for like, probably like the rest of the quarter rest of half.
00:18:57
Just like I've been doing a lot better job of that.
00:18:59
Just like if I miss a shot, I'll just say whatever.
00:19:02
Just focus on the next shot, make make a play next time, make a good defense or something like that.
00:19:10
I have another question about being a guess, the coach's kid.
00:19:13
Because since you're kind of like you know what, I'm the school probably feels like a second home to you during the games.
00:19:18
However, you got in trouble like probably the obvious not doing anything bad.
00:19:22
Like maybe, you know, you're on the court and, like, you know, maybe like someone runs into you or something where maybe you get hurt or like, just invade.
00:19:30
I guess the game's, uh, the game space.
00:19:32
Since you know, just kind of feel so comfortable that you feel you could walk wherever I never like walking on the court during game.
00:19:38
I would maybe, like, sit around on the side baskets during practice and like, if they're doing, like, sprints out, like in the way sometimes.
00:19:45
But I never got hurt or anything.
00:19:46
Like I never fell down.
00:19:47
They were just, like, out of the way you would be in the locker room, right? I guess after every game with your dad, when you were younger, Yeah, I would be in locker like as much as possible.
00:19:59
But then I have to get out.
00:20:00
If I had, like, a bad performance and like he was yelling at them and stuff but is very political and were you may be able to take away a lot from his, uh, his pre or postgame speeches and stuff like that.
00:20:13
Yeah, like he's got some really good postgame speeches I've tried to like, take into account some of them.
00:20:18
He just talks about, like how the game went, what they need to do to get better, just stuff like that taken into account.
00:20:23
And now he still gives really good ones like us after a loss or when he's pretty good at special Speaker.
00:20:29
And since you've probably been toe a ton of games, obviously and her ton of his speeches do coaches have a repeat speeches or are they all different? Um, he he makes up all of his on the fly.
00:20:41
Really? Just depending on what happened after the game or before the game.
00:20:45
Yeah.
00:20:46
Do you think I'll be coaching a thing that you might wanna pursue when you're when you're older? Yeah, I thought about it.
00:20:51
Actually, it could be a pretty good coach.
00:20:55
My brother actually tried to get into it, too.
00:20:57
He's still going to get into it, So I thought about it.
00:21:00
It might be a path I might like to take.
00:21:04
Yeah, it does it sound really cool.
00:21:06
And, uh, now playing at City of Palms again, you mentioned Chris like they're, you know, great player from the Hurricanes.
00:21:12
But Yeah, I saw you guys play a city of Palm's.
00:21:14
And honestly, it wasn't for Chris likes.
00:21:17
I would have no clue what Gonzaga College, High School Waas.
00:21:20
But then I got like, I I didn't even say this is Gonzaga.
00:21:25
I said, this is Chris likes high school.
00:21:27
Um, so, I mean, is your team a kind of a little bit of under the radar? And why do you think that? I definitely say so.
00:21:34
Like, we've got We've got some known like teams in our conference like, um, politics, ST John's College High School, the map.
00:21:43
So, yeah, we're all the same conference.
00:21:45
I'd say we're pretty swift on the radar, though.
00:21:47
Like we've had some really cool games.
00:21:49
You can watch Chris Lexus game against Sierra Canyon with Marvin Bagley, Cody Rieti, Cody Riley Remy Martin Ah, Christian beat ****ey Chain played I m g really close.
00:22:05
Um oh.
00:22:06
Day we beat them, Paul Ban and start team down the city of Palm.
00:22:10
So I'd say, Yeah, we're pretty swept under the radar.
00:22:12
We should have some more recognition.
00:22:13
Media waas on Martin. That's the case.
00:22:17
Um I feel like programs from like my air don't really get is much love is like programs with maybe California and New York, New Jersey, those types.
00:22:24
But I feel like I mean, it's starting to increase, I guess, because, like some of our teams will be some pretty big names like Paul, the Six Beat Sierra Canyon this year.
00:22:32
The Matha want for who they played, but they want a big game up in a the showcase in Massachusetts, so we're starting to get on the rise.
00:22:40
But I feel like we don't get enough recognition.
00:22:43
And do you maybe, like what? I guess, to put our just like you do.
00:22:47
You kind of wish the D.
00:22:48
M.
00:22:49
V was kind of on the map or that they are.
00:22:51
But you wish they were.
00:22:52
You know, one of those times when people say, you know, top basket places, usually whatever Chicago and I guess, uh, New York and I guess Los Angeles.
00:23:00
But you kind of wish maybe the D.
00:23:01
M.
00:23:02
V was way more of that conversation. A lot more.
00:23:04
Do you have to like being stepped on and being in that slept on area? I definitely was during the conversation, more like it's like it's like you get slept on for, like, two long, and it's like, Why don't we? Why don't we like up there in this conversation? But some people recognize some people notice.
00:23:20
Yeah, I mean, I I think the D.
00:23:22
M.
00:23:23
V is definitely if it's if it's out there, I say next year, you know everyone's gonna talk about it.
00:23:26
I e mean, I found so many guys from your area that are, like, legit, and I know there's even a more too.
00:23:32
So I think it's, Ah, pretty crazy area, for sure.
00:23:36
But with city of problems, because again, I thought of your did not call it Gonzaga College High School.
00:23:41
I called it Chris likes high school.
00:23:43
Um, it was maybe one of your goals for that tournament since you guys didn't get a lot of good teams, did it? Coaching you say, like, Hey, let's try putting this program, you know, back in the map, let a lot of people know what Gonzaga College High School is.
00:23:55
Yeah, that was the goal going into this season when he said it was such a big like schedule.
00:23:59
We had so many teams nationally scheduled like Qala Mir rancher like I said before.
00:24:04
So, yeah, we got off to a hot start.
00:24:06
Would be, Ah, hot start would be their day by, like, twelve, I'd say.
00:24:09
Then we played I m d and a really close game you can watch the film on.
00:24:12
It was I honestly think we should have one fans that I thought we should have wanted.
00:24:16
It was pretty, like, closely contested, but the refs kind of gotten away.
00:24:19
Then after that, we played Sheriff Cooper.
00:24:26
We did a good job of it.
00:24:27
I mean, I don't know if we got this time we deserve, but we got we got a pretty good amount out of it.
00:24:34
I mean, I think the p a announcer was hyping you guys up.
00:24:37
Ah, lot.
00:24:38
I think he said that.
00:24:39
You know, Dad's like a legendary coach like all this stuff.
00:24:41
And I'm like, What is this guy knows information, but yeah, I I think he definitely helped you guys up Baton and did It wasn't in the kitchen game, wasn't across and stuff with the rest to like it was kind of a weird game, but it went our favor.
00:24:57
So we gotta appreciate, I guess.
00:25:00
Yeah.
00:25:01
Yeah, that that I am.
00:25:02
I mean, that was kind of crazy.
00:25:03
Do you think? Do you have any guys? I mean, those i m g players are.
00:25:06
They were huge, like it's weird.
00:25:08
Like team, I think Eric Daily like he's pretty big Juris Walker.
00:25:13
They're like, huge thinking small, though, right? I was probably, like six, four, six, five.
00:25:21
That tournament now about six seven.
00:25:23
So, yeah, I mean, I got some minutes that game I didn't play a whole lot.
00:25:28
But now I probably this year, if we play them again, I'd get a lot of minutes.
00:25:31
I probably started.
00:25:33
Yeah, I'm kind of like I wish I knew like Mork because I didn't even have instagram.
00:25:38
I got instagram, I think the day after the like the final game, the championship game.
00:25:44
So I wasn't, you know, searching up like players all day long, so I had no clue.
00:25:49
I didn't even know anyone on your team waas at the time.
00:25:54
But so you went from six four, two, six, seven like this this year.
00:25:58
Really? Yeah.
00:25:59
Like mid season, I'd say I was like, six, four, six, four and a half than quarantine hit.
00:26:03
I was probably like six five going to quarantine now I'm about six, six, six seven Say I'm, like, six six and a half six seven without shoes.
00:26:12
And was that your gross spur? Or did you have one before? A swell.
00:26:16
The huge girls like started, um, started eighth grade.
00:26:19
I'd say I was five six.
00:26:20
I was sort of my mom.
00:26:21
Then end of it.
00:26:22
I was about talking my dad six foot.
00:26:24
Then going into freshman year, I grew a couple inches on.
00:26:27
Uh, yeah, but the biggest one, I'd say it was that eighth grade going into ninth grade on, uh, do you know why you've had all these growth spurts? Because I think I've only had one.
00:26:38
I think maybe I have had more, but for you And then you went from six, four, six, seven, You know, during the quarantine.
00:26:45
Then you said you also had one, you know, from a third going to ninth grade.
00:26:48
So why do you think you kind of had so many growth spurts? Honestly, I just think I had, like, the genetic lottery.
00:26:53
No.
00:26:54
One of my family's really that's all had six foot my half brother, six three, but that's because it was mom saw than other than that, no one in my family is really above like, six.
00:27:02
One, six, two.
00:27:04
Yeah, yeah.
00:27:06
Do you get a lot of like, uh, I guess not.
00:27:09
Cop people was like a lot of standing your family.
00:27:11
Every time you see them, they're always like, Oh, wow, you look so tall or their grammar is like But I ever And you were smaller than me or, you know, all these comments all the time.
00:27:20
You get, like, everything.
00:27:21
Basically, Yeah, Like like every day you get those comments or exactly a little bit of exaggeration, I get a lot like I mean, I'm six seven pretty tall, Did.
00:27:31
So every time I go out, I feel like you're talking.
00:27:33
I've had, like, a lady stopped her car and say, Oh, like how college it was like this old lady.
00:27:40
She's pulled over to the sidewalk.
00:27:42
I was doing my girlfriend.
00:27:43
She put it to the side and she was like, Oh, my gosh, how tall are you, like seventy something? That was really funny.
00:27:50
Yeah, that was seemingly working the grocery store.
00:27:52
People like, Do you play basketball because I'll ask you Have you ever told them like, No, I may be playing like a different sport.
00:27:59
Yeah, sometimes I'm like, No, I'm I could tell them golf playing so e always something like that.
00:28:06
I am.
00:28:07
What did they say? Like, Oh, did you ever played basketball before? But I'm not really sometimes like I would play like, rec ball.
00:28:15
And they're like, **** what I'm saying.
00:28:17
Like, yeah, maybe I should've gotten into it or something. E.
00:28:22
I love your like impression that Zo like it's so on point.
00:28:25
I was not your impression of like, I'm sorry.
00:28:29
I've had some funny interviews.
00:28:31
Uh, today.
00:28:32
So, man, I was That was pretty funny while, um, and I remember. Sorry.
00:28:40
I'm for us.
00:28:41
Earlier you said you were pretty grants or Christian.
00:28:42
Was that in California, or is that in a tournament somewhere? Nike Pollution in California Is that modern day.
00:28:51
Okay, what's the What's the Nike Pollute? And that was this season are last season.
00:28:55
That was this season.
00:28:56
Yeah.
00:28:57
What is it like all the Nike teams? Like all the top rated Nike teams from around the country, like the elite Nike teams, I forget who moderate played.
00:29:07
I think it was a team from Jersey.
00:29:09
It was a like there.
00:29:15
I think so.
00:29:16
You can you another one this year.
00:29:17
I'm not sure that's the played modern day a couple of years ago when the medals on that team okay, But I was just like you do a lot, I guess.
00:29:28
Cool stuff for the teams.
00:29:30
And what what sorts of stuff is Nike Dio And then I could lose up? Uh, yeah, they do like there's like this, like lounges for the players.
00:29:38
They give us like some food.
00:29:39
Oh, they give us this like Big Jim to practice, and it's pretty cool.
00:29:42
They let us play play like PS four or something like that.
00:29:45
Did it happen? Did they give you guys? Is that like, exclusive Nike man? That's kind of I'm kind of surprised you all the stuff that you wiped out.
00:30:06
Then you have your own high school baseball turning for your top top teams and you get nothing.
00:30:10
That's a little bit, uh, a little bit of a shocker, but that's how they make.
00:30:14
They made a lounge for the players, but then what? Like when did you guys even go there like aren't you after practice like they had a scope.
00:30:21
This like Big Lounge? It was pretty cool.
00:30:23
It was really nice over there.
00:30:25
I honestly, I just like the experience, like going to California.
00:30:28
I've never really been West Coast besides maybe going on organ when I was really little for a couple of years ago.
00:30:35
And but yeah, like just going to California bunch of East Coast kids like it was pretty cool, but it just like some because our game was so like we had some jet lag, like game there with nine.
00:30:45
But that's midnight for all the on the East Coast, and we were playing against, like, a host team.
00:30:49
So it's like that played a factor into like we were pretty sluggish, but we held them like we're going back and forth all game.
00:30:55
I think the final score was like lost by eight, but that was because, like free throws at the end of the game.
00:31:00
In reality, it was like a three point game.
00:31:02
Yeah, you didn't play a game when you fly it in the right.
00:31:06
Excuse me.
00:31:07
You didn't play a game like the day you flew in.
00:31:09
Now we put the day after we flew in, like at night going in and then we practice, like, earlier in the day.
00:31:17
And then we played at NA and the night, okay? And oh, man.
00:31:23
Well, even whatever I guess.
00:31:25
How are you? How come I'm thinking about how come the jet lag was like that? I can't even give you, like, the timing a little bit more of, I guess, compared from Eastern Taw Pacific time.
00:31:35
Yeah, way we're on Eastern time, like all week.
00:31:38
Then we finally come from school and then just automatically hit Pacific time Like I think everyone like the day we got like throughout the day we were there like everyone was sleeping like it was crazy like we were sleeping til, like three PM Then we had practice and they were, like, having all right.
00:31:52
We had early e think we like that we got there in the morning.
00:31:55
Actually, we got there for a day.
00:31:57
We, like, saw some stuff.
00:31:58
We went down toe, actually, the Staples Center.
00:32:01
Then we got through that morning.
00:32:02
We practice that day.
00:32:03
Then after everyone was like, we want to go to the hotel like just like it was a while, but then you guys were arrested them like it was no way felt so sluggish.
00:32:19
Like people were sleeping throughout that day.
00:32:21
We had practice.
00:32:22
It was just Yeah, it was.
00:32:25
So I don't give you, I guess, a lot more respect when n b a teams on the road and all that stuff because because, I mean, you said, you know, beats up that we fall asleep.
00:32:33
Eight.
00:32:34
We were all super tired, I mean, but now it's kind of crazy thing about how you know there's NBA teams and they play those games.
00:32:40
You know, the kind of able the well, I guess.
00:32:42
I guess technically, the one concern may be for the playoffs.
00:32:45
When the finals bought it on that, like the team that kinda have that, uh, that period, I guess toe deal with it somehow? Yeah, Yeah, it's like, Yeah, I can't imagine going back and forth on the East Coast of West Coast especially like the finals.
00:32:58
Like if you had, like, the Celtics play against the Lakers and the Heat playing, it's the Lakers.
00:33:01
Like that's crazy.
00:33:02
I mean, I don't even think about that.
00:33:05
Yeah, And you said we were taught stable center and did a lot of other stuff.
00:33:09
Um, was, I guess, the only touristy things you guys did or was there anything else, too? That was cool.
00:33:14
Yeah, we just saw.
00:33:16
Like, we went down to the Cub Memorial outside the Staples Center, which is really cool, and yeah, that was really going to What was the thing we did? Got some food.
00:33:23
What's in and out, Which is pretty good.
00:33:26
Okay.
00:33:27
Is that good? Yeah, it's really good.
00:33:29
And I was really good to make your burgers so fast and like like, Yeah, it was really good.
00:33:34
I like the fries air. Okay.
00:33:36
Like, they just need a little more salt on them.
00:33:37
But the burgers were really good.
00:33:39
Okay, so Well, I guess like you, would you say that's the best.
00:33:43
Like, probably shake Zacher five five Now, it was weird because I got it.
00:33:56
I think so.
00:33:57
The first time I went to my first, Like, like in person in.
00:34:00
So I get five guys and then, uh, the burger like it was fine and the actually no sorry.
00:34:05
We had our WiFi down in my house on my life three years.
00:34:08
So I go to my dad's office.
00:34:09
The five guys that got five guys for dinner on the burger was all right.
00:34:13
And the fries, they weren't even salted.
00:34:14
And then all of a sudden, I guess you're the fries were so good, you know, nice and salty.
00:34:19
The burger was really good.
00:34:20
Yeah, five guys.
00:34:21
Uh, that's pretty good.
00:34:23
This looks Yeah.
00:34:24
I think everyone like, if you ask anyone from the d M v.
00:34:27
They say five guys.
00:34:28
So Shake Shack's best place.
00:34:30
Are they just ton of five guys there? Is that kind of like a a big, not like staple? I mean, they're everywhere, though, right? I think so.
00:34:38
Everywhere, but like in the D M V.
00:34:40
They're pretty big, like that one.
00:34:42
Like almost every shopping find or something like that.
00:34:45
Yeah, I'm not my tummy's growling right now.
00:34:47
I'm not even exaggerating, but I want Have you had the Popeye's chicken sandwich before? Yes, man.
00:34:53
Like the week that it came out, I was, like, so pressed again when it's so good.
00:34:57
Like like man is.
00:34:59
But it looked like man is makes the sandwich e.
00:35:02
I don't like man.
00:35:03
I don't wanna know.
00:35:04
E my birthday.
00:35:07
Oh, really? I wanted for my but that was that was my second time having I think, But that is s o I was gonna get it when I hit one can Instagram I was gonna go get Popeye's, but I'm like, yeah, I won't Have you ever had May on the sandwich? I know like, Oh, yeah, I have to be on it.
00:35:24
Yeah, it has to be on. It tastes so good.
00:35:26
Well, do you know people have gone there like without it on it? Yeah, The first time I got I got it without the mayo And then, like the next time my mom got information something.
00:35:33
And I was like, Oh, there's May on it and she's like, Just don't worry about it is good.
00:35:36
And it was So you made the sandwich so much.
00:35:38
Yeah, I feel like it can't be managed.
00:35:40
It doesn't taste like it.
00:35:41
Get Manet's.
00:35:44
Yeah, I feel like it's not.
00:35:46
I think it is like a different things, like like like in few.
00:35:50
It's gonna be like something plus man, isn't it? Like it's not just straight up, man, because I never e Well, I think man is in a loss.
00:35:58
I think it's in like it might be a chick fil a soft.
00:36:00
Honestly, I think it might.
00:36:04
Well, it's because, like the texture, it's that Yeah.
00:36:08
Do you ****ier the original? I'll get the original.
00:36:11
Yeah, you're that.
00:36:12
I think I also know that I'll get a ****y but I get the original to the ****y was too ****y, I think.
00:36:17
Yeah, The ****y food Popeyes.
00:36:20
I don't like it that much, but all the models, that's really Yeah, man, I That's the best on, uh, did he maybe.
00:36:28
What other places? Besides, uh, besides City of Palm? Did you guys travel anywhere else on last season s? So we went to Florida into California for the Nike Pillows.
00:36:37
Oh, we went to Massachusetts on, but at the end of the season, we take a trip up to, like, this place called ***berland Maryland, which is really cool.
00:36:44
And I'm trying to think Do we go anywhere else nationally, I think the one with the Four places national, but yeah, yeah, You said only four places.
00:36:53
Not like I mean, is it usually more? It was not without a little bit of like, Easy is traveling season for you guys.
00:36:59
I think that's pretty like average.
00:37:00
Maybe sometimes it would go like one extra.
00:37:02
But other than that, like E.
00:37:05
Remember a few seasons ago like we did something like that and then at the beginning of season, we maybe take a trip like Chicago or something, Um, to sort of Chicago was out for a game or just for team bonding? Yeah, for a game like will play against public school up there like like a really good one.
00:37:20
Like or did a story when the school one of those types, schools like some Andi and we didn't want to come with the Maryland was I was for just, you know, fun trip.
00:37:30
Or was there also the game there as well? Way have a tournament up there called Alhambra.
00:37:34
It's pretty.
00:37:35
It's like a Catholic tournament with some of the teams like around the area.
00:37:38
But I was like the day like the day which will start games was or the day we got up there with the day that Corona hit like really big like right back down toe D. C. Again.
00:37:52
And that's what that was the West Day.
00:37:53
Like before quarantine and that kind of like, how were you guys any matter, what kind of whatever and did you get to do And maybe anything fun there, or would you really drive up and then drive back and didn't even get to stay tonight? Or I think we stayed the night in the morning that we had.
00:38:09
We had to go back, but yeah, all we did was practice.
00:38:11
And then after that way, had to go back home.
00:38:15
Man, where you guys really, uh, I'm sure.
00:38:17
Or at least were the seniors.
00:38:18
I get extremely upset about that outcome.
00:38:21
How you know, this kind of, you know, have last game even though, you know, some are going to college and a lot of stuff with a lot of them upset and where you really sat as well, we weren't They weren't like that upset.
00:38:31
They were disappointed, but it was like it is what it is.
00:38:33
We already finished their actual season like we just had, like, d c states. We just won that.
00:38:37
So I think, honestly, like they're probably, like, happier that they're like, we're not with a win.
00:38:41
When I was a pretty big wind and then you all the younger guys like, Yeah, as long as they're happy, we're happy.
00:38:45
So we just went back down s That's kind of like a bonus tournament.
00:38:50
Like it's not like.
00:38:51
So after your seat, I guess what I like is that a part of your real season? Technically, no.
00:38:56
Like, you have to get invited to it.
00:38:57
But we get invited to a basically every, like the top four teams in our conference get invited to it every year.
00:39:03
Yeah, the top four teams.
00:39:05
So would that be? Would that be you, Paul? The sixth of the Matha and Saint John? It's usually like those four every year.
00:39:16
Yeah. I don't know.
00:39:17
I don't I feel like someone told me.
00:39:18
Know someone might have told me about that.
00:39:20
But I'm not one hundred percent sure Eyes that, like, is there like a city tournament to? Yeah, there's a D. C. States tournament.
00:39:28
So, like we play against, like, ST John's in it because their from D.
00:39:31
C.
00:39:32
And then we play against, like, there's some D c.
00:39:33
Public schools as well.
00:39:35
Yeah.
00:39:36
What? Uh, who told me about that? But that's what I was kind of, uh, that's kind of learning about.
00:39:41
And, uh, again, you know, I'm aware you're a super super tough conference.
00:39:44
I mean, that's what makes it so difficult.
00:39:47
Just the competition, like year and year out.
00:39:50
Um, wcsc all the kids, like all the kids in the area, I really want to go to schools and W J. C.
00:39:55
So especially the math of like they Sometimes they have, like a summer league team of like, twenty something.
00:40:00
Kids like everyone, like in the area like everyone knows that the wcsc is a really tough conference.
00:40:05
Everyone wants to be in it.
00:40:06
So, yeah, it's just like the massive amount of talent that goes into it every year.
00:40:11
Like the leaves.
00:40:12
Pretty tough, like you never really know who's gonna be who so, like sometimes like some of the worst teams will be some of the best teams, just like crazy like there's really, like, no, like weak links in the conference, like there's some some teams like don't win them into games, but like they could always like, snag a game from like the team.
00:40:28
So and I'm assuming, um that are all the guys on your AU teams, they all kind of live in a different area? Or are they Gonzaga? Some of them like, Yeah, we've got a lot of kids like that are in that league.
00:40:44
But then we also got like a lot of public school kids, and then we actually have a kid from up in like Charlotte's Villa, Virginia.
00:40:50
Like right by the university.
00:40:56
He's a dog on that job.
00:40:58
Other than that, I don't think we've got anyone from that far out of area.
00:41:02
We have this new kid named Sasha Woodman, who is also really good.
00:41:05
I forget where he's from them, but he's going to school like now he's going supposed to look in the area, so I just wanna know.
00:41:12
It turns out just we're going to see that a you because I know a you There is also, I mean, really good to get saw.
00:41:20
Its you guys, your team.
00:41:21
It's team thrill, right? That's called there from Baltimore.
00:41:25
I'm all star team.
00:41:26
Take a Baltimore is in the d m V, though, right? I mean, they really like it's like, weird, like if you have to it from like the d M v A.
00:41:33
Like they don't consider Baltimore father d M.
00:41:35
Okay, so it's not not team throw, then your takeover take.
00:41:41
The takeover, then, is what's called Prospect.
00:41:44
You.
00:41:45
That's called Team Durant.
00:41:46
Prospect is a new team, but yeah, we're going to.
00:41:49
But I feel like, you know, I'm probably missing out of team, but I guess you know you guys are all very solid.
00:41:54
I know everyone's.
00:41:55
I think every kind of teams always like mixed up with all the kids of much of her schools.
00:41:58
Then maybe it kind of builds.
00:42:00
Not yeah, and the culture that makes sense.
00:42:01
Or I guess, family atmosphere, where everyone is kinda all friends off the court and then on the court, you know, everyone's kinda killing it.
00:42:08
Then you know all the court again.
00:42:09
You guys are so friends.
00:42:11
Yeah, it's a It's a big thing like down here like everyone.
00:42:14
Yeah, like you put it perfectly like everyone's like, really friendly off the court, like everyone basically knows.
00:42:20
Everyone, um, like if you play basketball like it's a really easy way to build friends when d.
00:42:24
M.
00:42:25
V like there's so many kids that I know just through basketball and yeah, everyone kind of makes friends that way, and I never realized like the public schools are good as well in terms off athletic.
00:42:36
So just why they, like every I guess team the D M v like stacked Like How? How is that possible? E don't know.
00:42:43
There's just, like a really good amount of talent, man.
00:42:45
Like, got some pretty good public pools around here, especially in Baltimore.
00:42:49
Polly like team from Boston, actually.
00:42:51
Just be I m g this year, all right? The schools called Poly.
00:42:55
Yeah, Polly like p a like Paul and I p o l i Well, that sounds very familiar.
00:43:04
Well, I always sort out afterwards, but, um, how is what are some of the goals for you and your team next year are this year everyone's really hungry to win a championship.
00:43:14
Honestly, like, I think we're gonna really like solid team this year.
00:43:18
Everyone like the chemistry will be Devin Juniors on this team.
00:43:23
Or were we supposed to be having that amount? And then, yeah, everyone just wants the team to, like, kind of glued together.
00:43:29
Bond, just focus.
00:43:31
Hard to get the championship.
00:43:32
Gonna have a and now, losing a guy like Terrance Williams who's not committed to Michigan.
00:43:39
I mean, I know he was bawling out City of problems.
00:43:42
I mean, I never heard of him.
00:43:44
Someone's out turn. And I was like, Wow, this guy is crazy.
00:43:46
Good.
00:43:47
So again, you're losing a guy like Terrance Williams.
00:43:48
What do you expect your role to be, uh, for the season? And you think it's gonna change it all? Yeah, definitely.
00:43:54
Last year I was kind of like a backup.
00:43:56
I would like someone got in foul trouble in the starting lineup.
00:43:59
One of the guards, I would come in for a little bit, just trying to, like, make something happened, Then just play my minutes.
00:44:05
Honestly, sixteen years this year, we had we had.
00:44:11
Terrence is going to Michigan.
00:44:12
We had Chuck, who's going to Butler.
00:44:13
We had Miles is going to Vanderbilt, and then we had a Georgetown Georgetown baseball player who's in that lineup, and then we had two guys that are going D two and D three.
00:44:23
So all those guys really talented, really like special parts of our program.
00:44:27
So yeah, definitely.
00:44:28
I think my role is toe step up this year, be one of the three main scoring options and just do what I can dio shoot.
00:44:36
Makes there's shots playing good defense, be a leader.
00:44:40
Um, would you say that you were You said, you know, you were just going to someone the starting lineup with foul trouble, But would you maybe say like, your baby, a certain player you will be shadowing? Yeah, Carl, I'd say I was shadowing like junior mints, who's also like in my class.
00:44:54
He's like a two three guard.
00:44:56
And then Carlos Hub was like the senior that I would shadows well, like whenever he got into foul trouble.
00:45:00
I'll going for a little bit.
00:45:03
And I mean, you know, we were shadowing a senior like, uh, Carlos Hub.
00:45:06
I mean, just you gotta have a leadership role on you, And is there anything that he's kind of tall you or something's off from his game? Or so, like, he acts the person that you want to take away from him? Yeah, he's a really good shooter, like I aspired myself, like, be a really good shooter.
00:45:20
He tried the best shooter on our team.
00:45:22
He made a lot of really tough shots, was really consistent.
00:45:25
Three point shooter, um and yeah, his brother is actually the Prentice up.
00:45:32
So yeah, I took like he was a really high energy guy.
00:45:35
Like he would always talk, like, get us really hyped on and off the court.
00:45:39
Very cool guys.
00:45:40
So, yeah, it was pretty is an honor to shadow him, Honest.
00:45:43
And, uh, I don't think I mentioned this in the first interview, but I do know I used to math.
00:45:48
I'm pretty sure the coach, like a lot of those guys are in the NBA.
00:45:51
I think they all started playing JV basketball, which are, I would still say, like, that's not really common if you're an elite prospect when you're not gonna play JV basketball.
00:45:59
But you did play JV basketball.
00:46:01
So how were you able to go from playing JV basketball to now being a three star prospect in the class of twenty twenty two? Honestly, like E, like the fact that I played JV basketball really says a lot of championship, So I guess that says something about it.
00:46:23
But I feel like if I went toe another school like in the air, like a public school, I have been one of the best president varsity, so I just think that says a lot about the W K. C.
00:46:30
And yeah, it was really fun.
00:46:31
I really took a year off just so, like, get my game ready, focused.
00:46:35
I was leading scoring on team and even, like in the wcsc, like some of the jobs and the expertise stuff.
00:46:40
But the math of JP scene felt like it was like a full on Busses, and they're really good.
00:46:44
So but yeah, I really appreciate it.
00:46:47
Like getting to take a year off.
00:46:49
I'd say from like, Not like like high level competition.
00:46:52
Like getting to, like, really have a year like myself.
00:46:54
Focus on my skills against, like, some lower level competition.
00:46:57
But honestly, just like yeah, get better as a player work out for sure.
00:47:02
And you know, you said the math is kind of like a Farsi T even with their JV team.
00:47:06
Did they treat like do all the school ST James's game Super Seriously, Um, is there usually a lot of packed crowds and is there Is there even a JV championship for you guys up there? I I wish we had a JV term I thought would be really fun, but no way have, like, we kind of end the season when the varsity would start up would start playoffs.
00:47:23
Um, but yeah, like after? Like since since it goes like freshman on the JV game.
00:47:28
So, like, we get, like, a crowd for like, um, before, like, the varsity games.
00:47:32
Especially like the big bars game.
00:47:33
So, like, I was playing like a pack house, we played one of the teams in our league called McNamara.
00:47:38
And yeah, we had, like, a full on crowd, like both sides.
00:47:40
Like screaming at each other.
00:47:41
So it was pretty, Um, I'm sure for you, like I probably wasn't your first experience.
00:47:47
Like in front of pack route.
00:47:48
We're gonna be any guys on that team where they were like, Whoa, like, why all these people here? Like maybe those guys that you know, might even make it to the varsity level.
00:47:54
It all with a little surprise.
00:47:57
I think I was the I was the only kid to make it that varsity the next year from that JV team.
00:48:04
And yeah, and then, um, but a kid there's a couple of kids from like that that team that played JV again, they're gonna make the team this year.
00:48:12
Oh, actually, no. There was one kid.
00:48:14
Are are big man.
00:48:15
Actually was on JB that year in the next year in Boston.
00:48:19
Well, they may be all, like, surprise.
00:48:21
Like, why would you want my game? I also JV team.
00:48:23
It's just freshmen sop****res.
00:48:25
Or could you be senior on JB? No, it was It was just freshman sop****re.
00:48:30
Okay, so maybe I need those swelling.
00:48:34
They're gonna be this kind surprise.
00:48:36
Like, why are all these people here I am? My games a little weird.
00:48:40
Yeah. I felt some of that from them.
00:48:42
Like they're like, Oh, dang.
00:48:43
Like it's packed house.
00:48:44
Like I didn't expect that.
00:48:46
Yeah, well, why was there a packed house for your JV game? Especially the math game is a really big deal in our area, like their, um, their gym seats.
00:48:55
So many people.
00:48:56
So like, and it's really big, like it always sells out.
00:48:59
So, yeah, before our game, everyone's trying to get in.
00:49:02
Everyone kind of catches like halftime or the end of the game.
00:49:05
So I'd say there's probably, like, three thousand people at a at the end of a J. B again.
00:49:11
Andi, I mean that? Excuse me.
00:49:13
So it's I mean, I know it's not gonna ever for the season.
00:49:15
I doubt it will be with, uh, too many fans.
00:49:18
But I just love you know, my uncle's barber games there because I'm the I always feel like even though no one's giving like no one cares about me.
00:49:24
I feel like all the tensions, like me being the announcer, like, I feel like I'm kind of like the spotlights on me.
00:49:29
So when there's a pack game, you know I'm playing the music.
00:49:32
I like saying this stuff in a big microphone.
00:49:36
So if you kind of feel the same way, way walk out, you know, music comments packed with your students and parents and all yourself.
00:49:44
I mean, how does that energy field? Yeah, I get exactly what you're saying.
00:49:47
It just it feels awesome.
00:49:48
Honestly, Like I love that about being on varsity.
00:49:51
It sucks that, like, I can't do that this year, like, I was really excited for my junior year.
00:49:55
Especially now that I'm gonna be, like in a starting role, like I would be really fun.
00:49:58
But it is what sorry you got from JV for being a three star prospect when you consider you're doing a lot harder than most other guys.
00:50:14
Yeah, a little bit like it was a different route.
00:50:17
Honestly, like I want to say it wasn't that much of a good JV experience is kind of like the experience of being a coach's son like you get a lot of flak for that from kids that aren't even like is good as you were, just like kids.
00:50:27
That kind of you get like a lot of Doubters from that.
00:50:29
So it's cool to like proofs and kids and wrong.
00:50:32
And I'm just ready for, like this season really embrace my role on, Yeah, just prove them.
00:50:36
I should be a three four star prospect and sticking it.
00:50:40
You know those coaches sons being I mean, there's so many others are, I guess, you know, there's not that many, but at the same time, there's a ton of kids where you know my dad even even like directly, you know, everyone's kind of Yeah, well, his dad's the coaches.
00:50:51
Why he's like this.
00:50:53
Um, do you? Maybe you and your dad, because I I didn't know this until I watched um, another interview with you.
00:50:59
So do you guys maybe try to keep it a little bit low key? Or has that kind of, ah have that kind of work? I mean, honestly, like, I can't really escape it like everyone knows me, like as like, being Coach Turner, son, like my parents will be like, Oh, like little like That's your dad's like, like a legend or something like that.
00:51:15
So, yeah, everyone kind of knows that.
00:51:17
It's kind of hard to like, Keep it low key like he's one of the best small Gator coaches the year twenty sixteen like, it's kind of hard to keep a low profile of that.
00:51:28
That's kind of funny, because I had no clue like that.
00:51:31
Your dad, even like you probably saw you two guys on paper.
00:51:34
Two things would have been like and probably not related.
00:51:36
Like, I don't know, I didn't think like that, but yes.
00:51:40
So how how are you kind of ableto deal with all that stuff and just try to build your legacy? Um, yeah.
00:51:47
I mean, I think I've done a pretty good job.
00:51:50
Just kind of got a like brush it off, You know, you get some my daddy's ball comments like when you're on the court.
00:51:55
Other than that, though, it's whatever you just gotta play through it.
00:51:58
It's kind of cool, like shots.
00:52:00
Um, kids up.
00:52:02
Is that what happens when you're playing it? Like so all the kids, I guess some other school, like they do their research and just kind of stuff that you you know, when you're playing an away game, Yeah, like I feel like I was especially would have gotten this year because we're gonna be a starter on varsity.
00:52:15
But like, when I would play JV like I got a I got a lot of those comments, like, why don't you on varsity? Your dad's coach? A So you have stuff like that? I don't know, I guess is your s maybe advice.
00:52:26
Any other coach sons out there, they're just, you know, really want to take the time.
00:52:33
Another day, they'll call you a coaches on.
00:52:34
You're obviously doing something, right? So, yeah, just see playing.
00:52:38
Keep your head forward and just put them off.
00:52:41
And is there may be something that you wanna do this tough solidify like, Hey, you know I'm not a coach.
00:52:46
Turner's son or whatever they call your coach t.
00:52:49
Or, you know, the goat coach something.
00:52:51
Whatever, whatever.
00:52:52
Whatever they call your your coach.
00:52:53
Do you wanna like What do you want to do this? To make sure that people know like I'm on the coach's son? I'm I'm Jerry Turner.
00:53:00
Yeah, I just got to stand out this year, I guess.
00:53:02
Just show them what I can dio show my three point ability, my defensive ability.
00:53:07
Just play as good as I can.
00:53:09
Just kind of got to separate myself.
00:53:10
I'm a little bit That's awesome.
00:53:13
And which schools that have been reaching out to you the most? Um so I actually had a zoom called with Western Michigan yesterday.
00:53:20
Recent schools have been talking to me.
00:53:22
Coach Larranaga texted me from Miami.
00:53:25
Wake Forest texting makeup.
00:53:27
They call me actually to the Paul.
00:53:30
They offered me a while back and they still keep in touch.
00:53:32
G W One of my first offers.
00:53:34
They keep in touch a lot, and VCU picked up a little bit.
00:53:39
Richmond.
00:53:40
Yeah, a lot of East Coast schools and Stanford actually have a couple weeks ago is well, so I'm waiting for them to talk to me again, but yeah, Good amount of, like, mid majors.
00:53:48
The high major schools have been talking to me.
00:53:51
Yeah, we definitely need you to take that, uh, that official or unofficial visits in Miami, Uh, for sure.
00:53:56
Even though even though I'm not planning to go in there, I mean, still, you know, that's my or how do you think I guess.
00:54:05
Coach Jim, How did how did you find out about Gonzaga? Because obviously to find about it out about it, to recruit Chris like So how does he kind of know, like, Hey, this school has a lot of good kids.
00:54:14
I should always look Pinto go into their games or look at their prospects.
00:54:18
I mean, yeah, he's been he's been coaching game for a really long time, I think.
00:54:22
Probably his research.
00:54:23
He saw a lot of our like players in a sec.
00:54:26
Um, a lot of those big time conferences, but Chris was like a really, like, good prospect on the EU circuit, especially with team take over.
00:54:32
So it was really easy for him to get his name out there, and, yeah, just a really good talent.
00:54:38
Yeah, but you want to say Chris Lights was the reason he didn't put desire on the map right like that when I was because of him.
00:54:43
We've got, we've got We had a lot of really good teams, Like, I'd say in two thousand eight was one of our best teams of all time.
00:54:50
They went thirty four and one we had.
00:54:53
They had a guy that went to Princeton Guy that was getting heavily recruited by, like, Georgetown, Villanova.
00:54:58
He actually end up going, Um, Harvard.
00:55:01
And then we had Tyler Thornton with the Duke.
00:55:02
We had a Richmond guy.
00:55:04
We had really good players on that team, but they're probably the best teams to come out of the D M V area.
00:55:08
Yeah, I think maybe a chance could because I know Jim Lana, coach at Georgia Mason.
00:55:14
That's in Virginia, I think, Right, Yes, I'm not close it.
00:55:18
It's a d C.
00:55:19
But we could always be something.
00:55:21
Something to Yeah, it's, um, D m v ties.
00:55:24
Yeah, and I don't know if you could tell me this, but when Stanford reached out, only because this kid told me this one.
00:55:29
Stanford, did they ask you for your transcriptions? That kind of kind of.
00:55:33
That was one of the first things they did ask me for my transcript.
00:55:36
Yeah, because I know that's what that's what the other kids told me.
00:55:39
He said they had him, like, send this stuff first.
00:55:42
Um, I guess most glass for your grades.
00:55:43
I'm sure your grades are great.
00:55:45
Uh, do you ever think, like, what if my grades weren't bad? It's like it's like a like, Are they gonna Is that gonna be acceptable with them, Like a couple of like bees gonna turn them off.
00:55:54
So Well, I think I think that be.
00:55:56
I think if you have, like, straight B's, I think they'd be kind of, uh, impressed.
00:56:00
But I'm just saying, Like, just imagine what Have you had a baby like de season? AFS.
00:56:06
What about? Imagine how How different.
00:56:09
Like what? Like I just want you to feel if a school like hey, you know how your grades I mean, like, like, even even wasn't stand for, like, whatever.
00:56:18
Like, that would be crazy.
00:56:19
Yeah, Especially if they give you a Stanford actual transcript like, Oh, I have season ds like that would suck.
00:56:24
Yeah.
00:56:26
Yeah.
00:56:28
And you know, I guess you You talk about schools that reached out to most recently all those kind of same schools that have been, uh, showing you a lot of heavy interest.
00:56:35
Yeah, those those have been the main schools, Like showing me a lot of heavy interest.
00:56:38
Uh, some local school have been showing interest, like Mount ST Mary's.
00:56:41
But those were all the main school.
00:56:42
Those schools that are listed have been showing me the most interest.
00:56:46
And you said you got off the zoom with Western Michigan, right? You know, Western Michigan Division.
00:56:51
A lot of good interest.
00:56:52
I really like talking to the coaching staff.
00:56:54
Yeah.
00:56:55
How is that? How How that's gonna go for you.
00:56:57
It was really cool.
00:56:58
Surprising. The campus is beautiful. Honestly.
00:57:00
Showed me, like, around all their facilities.
00:57:03
Their locker room is really cool.
00:57:04
They just remodeled it.
00:57:05
Their housing they're working on, like a new, uh, project for like like the southern like part of their school.
00:57:11
So, yeah, it's It's a really nice place up there.
00:57:13
I wanna Yeah.
00:57:17
I could definitely, uh, one of their players I interviewed before he just come committed.
00:57:20
They're actually like a hero.
00:57:22
He could have their like, probably a few months ago, at least.
00:57:25
But yeah, I mean, he seems to really like the school.
00:57:28
And, you know, we could stop talking recruitment.
00:57:30
Let's talk about team takeover.
00:57:32
So how did you get involved with the team? Take over? Yeah, they're, like, really one of the premier teams in, like our area.
00:57:39
When I was really little like I played for another team called Maryland's finest, so we were pretty good.
00:57:43
We won a couple of national championships on the EU circuit, but team take it has always been around like they have some many teams and, like the elementary and middle school age groups.
00:57:52
And when you finally get the high school like, we're like one of the only you RBL teams in the area.
00:57:56
So, yeah, like they're just a major program that got put out like a lot of pros and stuff and maybe other.
00:58:04
Any teammates either from Gonzaga or from team take over that you maybe wanna team up within the next level.
00:58:12
Um, honestly, if I ever got the opportunity to post like any of my AU team, and I would love that, but probably specifically like the kids that play play for my high school like Devin.
00:58:21
Think it's legitimate star point guard and ah, premier like wing.
00:58:24
I would love to the feminist around in college.
00:58:28
Um, you know, even though you said I wanna play with them in college, will there be any guys where you don't wanna be friends with them? Like, But you don't wanna play against them in college instead? Because I know I mean, those air that might even be more fun than playing with somebody who is playing against them.
00:58:41
How many guys like your friends with that you wanna play against? Not with Yeah.
00:58:45
I mean, I'd love to play like any of my friends, like in college, Any of my AU teammates.
00:58:49
Any of my high school teammates, Like we have got a matchup.
00:58:51
That would be really fun.
00:58:53
All right.
00:58:54
And then my final question for you is what are your goals by the time to graduate high school? I'm really just wanna try to get a championship, Gets the best grades possible.
00:59:04
