100% Complete Bio
Born in Providence, Rhode Island, i was raised in Bristol, RI from birth to 1996. Grew up into a big baseball family, so i was basically a born-in Red Sox fan. My grandpa was a big fan of the Pats and Giants, so football became our weekend sport too. I didn't really learn the game of basketball until i left Maryland (96-98) and moved down to San Antonio, where my Mom met big-Spurs fan step-dad, Jeff. The Spurs DNA got stabbed into my blood and i've bled silver and black ever since. I developed a big passion for basketball, and learned and built my game from my best friend Marlon. From there i grew and learned more, building my game beyond what i was tought. I've gained a lot of weight in the last few years, so at times i have played multiple positions. I like to play as a shooting guard, but i have also been playing like a forward, getting down low with my new weight and size. At 5'11" 175 pounds, i can be pretty physical down low. I've even guarded my best bud Carlos, who is a whopping 6'2" 300+ pounds. Talk about a big assignment! Love you bro! LOL! Excited to move back to San Antonio from here in LA, especially to once again dominate on the court back in San Antonio.
