Justin thanks for talking togermanhoops.com. Where are you at the moment and how have you been enjoying your summer vacation?
I’m in my home town, Akron, Ohio. I have been working out hard and spending time with family.
Congrats on signing with German Regionalliga team BSG Grevenbroich. How blessed are you to be able to call your yourself a professional basketball player and did you ever think this would be possible when you were in the gym grinding day in and day out at SW Illinois JC (JUCO)?
I am very blessed to call myself a professional. And yes, I have always been confident in my game and how it progresses.
