I really want to make the varsity team my freshman year.
I'm 5'11'', 155lbs, very lean (I have a six pack), 14 years old.
I just broke my foot 3 months ago and got off the cast 1 month ago, so I'm still weak on that foot. I could touch rim before I broke it.
My strengths are: I'm the fastest kid in my school, I can jump the highest when I'm healthy, I'm strong, great endurance, I play really intense and with desire and focus, I have a freakishly good defensive game for my age (great timing/instincts), I'm clutch, I can hit free throws (70% or so), I have good fundamentals, and I can drive to the basket well. I can shoot the midrange jumper well and am all right at dribbling. It's next to impossible to stop me down low right now. I can post up very well.Also, I work really hard.
My weaknesses are: I'm injured, I am only okay at ball handling, I can't hit threes, and I need help with my passing.
I'm not even close to done growing yet because I'm only 14 1/2 and my dad stopped growing at 20, so I'll probably be like that.
I know I've got the genetics, My dad was an All-State High-School player (North Dakota, Somewhere around the mid to late 80's).
What I really want is to be skilled like a guard and maybe add a few more inches to my vertical.
