I've played and been passionate about the sport of basketball since the age of 5. I've played under dozens of coaches and parks across Miami from the age of 5, through junior high(middle school today), and junior year in high school, where I was forced to stop playing because of injury. I learned a lot throughout the years with an emphasis on fundamentals. Never have I lost the love for basketball.
