Additional information

PRO CHANCE
On a visit to Glasgow to visit his mother's family, his grandmother noticed the Glasgow Rocks basketball club were having an open trial - he impressed and was offered a contract. "It does feel like it was meant to be. My mum went from here to America to follow her dreams and now I’ve come back to where she’s from to chase mine. It’s crazy how things are working out but the timing couldn’t have been better. The lease on my apartment finished at the point I came. I was free of all responsibilities, so it allowed me to come over and throw everything into this." (eveningtimes.co.uk, 7 Nov 2015)


SCHOOL FIRST
