Anthony's Story

My passion is basketball.

At the age of twelve, I started to go to the gym, and I discovered a passion for basketball. My dad bought me a hoop for my backyard, and I slowly just started playing. Once I became more confident and wanted to learn more, I began to play with my cousins and friends. I slowly started to make more friends and became more social. Basketball helped me to find myself, my voice, and my passion. It has instilled within me a sense of discipline and the knowledge to know that I can change my reality. I credit basketball for being the foundation to my success in school and hope to continue to develop the skill because it helps me focus and stay motivated.

I believe this summer program will give me the formal guidance I have yet to have. Since I started playing later than most of my peers, I have been playing catch up. Attending PGC Playmaker College will give me the coaching and experience of playing with students from other schools to help me hone my skills.

A Note from Mrs. Nelson, Anthony's Teacher

Anthony has always had a passion for basketball. He studies the sport diligently, strives to improve his craft, and overall has a genuine love for the sport. Anthony exhibits characteristics that truly make him authentic in everything he sets his mind to. He has the ability to discuss his accomplishments with joy, his setbacks with a learning tone, and his plans with enthusiasm. Finally, he is ambitious without seeing himself in competition with others. I wholeheartedly support Anthony's participation in PGC Playmaker College II.
