Diary Of A Baller: Trey Patterson (Somerset, NJ) Entry #2

Trey Patterson Running Cross Country

Hello Basketball World, 

This is Trey Patterson signing back in for my 2nd week of ‘Diary of a Baller’. I hope everyone had a wonderful and blessed week. This week was a very busy week for me, that seemed like it would never end. I had two cross county meets this week, which is very rare, usually it’s just one meet a week, but for some reason, this year, the season started off in overload. In addition to my track schedule, I still had my basketball workouts for the week along with completing school work assignments. I had a science quiz, in which I believe I did very well on.
