My mom makes sure I am not slacking in school an is always asking and checking on my grades. She makes sure I have transportation to any practice,workout and game. My dad is my athletic caretaker! He critiques every aspect of my game and breaks it down to show me what I did wrong or right. My dad works me out and trains me. He updates me on all high school basketball news to show how blessed I am to be where I’m at and to show how I can get better. I honestly couldn’t be here without those two people!
