Hugh thanks for talking to German Hoops. Where are you at the moment and how has your summer been?
It feels great to be home, after a long season away from my family, I’m really happy to finally see them
How did it feel coming home to Macon, Georgia as a two time champion with Helios Suns Domzale (Slovenia-Telemach League). Did all the hard work as a professional that you put in each day finally pay off?
I’m really excited to start my new journey, I have been putting in a lot of work throughout the year, and it’s starting to pay off.
