Juwaan's Story

My passion is basketball.

Throughout my life, I’ve had many experiences with basketball but have never been as good as I’d like to be. I’ve tried to join a few teams, and I finally found success and made a name for myself in eighth grade. During the summer time, I would get up and shoot some shots with my friends. We would play pick up games: 2v2, 3v3, 5v5. Some games would be lost, which was tough, but those kinds of games are the games that you learn from so that you can get better.

I will attend PGC Essentials Camp to develop my skills in my game and try to be the best that I can be. I was always told that practice makes perfect, so this will be my practice. From this camp, I hope to develop more skills and to increase my endurance so that I move faster on the court.

A Note from Mr. Thomas, Juwaan's Teacher

"Juwann's display of exemplary passion, persistence, and motivation lies in his discipline and commitment to the school basketball team. He has improved considerably over the last seven months through hard work, and he continues to set personal and athletic goals for himself.

Juwaan is an ideal candidate for the PGC Essentials Camp because he works extremely hard to improve his game. He has identified other weaknesses in his game that he is willing and committed to improving. This program will provide Juwann with the necessary platform to improve his weaknesses and further improve his strengths."
