The guys are very grateful to their various sponsors and are
working very hard to repay the faith that has been placed in them. The Academy
is getting stronger; the players are very excited and have gone up many notches
since last year. Attendance has been ok
and is getting better; the guys are constantly re-evaluating their efforts and
finding ways of improving.
There has been the emergence of various leaders in the
group. Young Steven Wynter has stepped up big time and is the most vocal player
this year, he is definitely the life of the group. I am particularly impressed
with Ryan Hall and young Kemar Leslie. Ryan’s overall effort in training has
been inspiring to his fellow team mates; he constantly talks to and encourages
them. As a young player he has all the necessary ingredients that if he remains
humble and stick to his training routine he can go a far way. Kemar’s skill
level for a big man is very encouraging and he can only get better.
We have been doing a lot of core skills with the emphasis
being on quality passing and running correct lines. We are now starting to
develop a couple of exit sets. The guys are very excited about this as they all
stated today that this is the best session so far.
Stay tuned for the announcement of the HRL Academy captains
for 2011 season………..
