Question

About basketball...I feel kinda overwhelmed sometimes cuz most of yall are former players or scouts and crap and I just love it but isn't that great compared to everyone of yall here lol...but I was wondering how far do you think is possible for a player to go from a little private school? Like we've only got 300 people at my entire school, elementary included. But I'm trying to do everything I can, like I'm trying to get my vertical up so I can dunk by next year, my jump shot to about 50%, and just tryin to improve my ball handling and quickness all together. I had a Globetrotter tell me a few weeks ago that I can achieve anything I want if I put my mind to it, but even if I was a superstar I don't know if it could ever amount to anything just cuz where I go to school and who we play

Haha I've thought about

Haha I've thought about playing for a community college in 3 years when I graduate...I mean my dreams are just as big as MJ's were. Like I can't explain enough how much I love the game of basketball, but I'm just a white kid starting point at a small private school lol

EDIT: I don't think I can transfer cuz me and my family are very devout Christians and there's no way my parents would send me to a public school. I was on my city's first AAU team and my high school basketball coach coached during our games (HE SUCKS. So bad) and all he did was play the black guys (No offense or anything, but he played them the whole time cuz there's not many at my school) so I didn't get to do anything that would put me in a position to get noticed

If

you're going to stay at a small school you gotta make sure you stand out big time....but its not impossible at all to succeed from a small school.....
