He/we (except for me with the pesky CP) are an athletic family. My brother was 3-sport all state in the 2nd largest classification in the state. My cousin was a great All-State WR.
And, our grandpa was good enough to play professional baseball (but was a little guy).
Zane is different though. Sneaky athletic. He doesn’t look like it but he’s quicker than almost anyone he plays. Has a 38’ vertical. Has had very good combine numbers and has put up big #s in the best basketball conference (arguably) in the state (with Marion, W. Memphis and Jonesboro).
But, the reason he has a chance to be very good is he works his tail off. Drives 3 hours both ways to train with Justice Hill’s trainer. Ultra competitive.
He just has to overcome the eye test. Most people look at him and think little white boy that stands in the corner and shoots 3s.
But that’s not him. He scores at all 3 levels. Defends the opponent’s best player and usually gives them fits.
He just needs to fill out. If, as doctors say he should, he grows 1-2 inches and gains 10-15 pounds (still hasn’t fully developed physically although he is filling out, now) he will go from having low D1 offers to larger D1 offers.
Regardless, we are all very excited and proud. I have had a small part in his efforts and I am beaming with pride.
It is such a joy to see family or friends have success especially when they usually outwork others around them. Know Adam, that he won’t forget your contributions to his journey. Bragging is acceptable
