Diary Of A Baller: Jordan Forehand Entry #15

Hello Basketball World!

It's your boy Jordan. I graduated from Rutgers Prep on Friday. This was definitely my most challenging academic year. Rutgers Prep has a very rigorous and demanding curriculum. I met a lot of new friends and
enjoyed my experiences with them. Though the school year is over, I still do work over the summer. This includes reading books and working on my math skills for next year. As my dad says "Basketball will get
you to the door, but without an education, you will not be able to open that door".

Over the weekend, my Sports University team played in the Team Philly tournament down in Philadelphia. We won both of our games on Saturday. We won our first three on Sunday, but lost to Team Philly in the semi-finals. I was glad that our games on Saturday were early. This allowed me to be able to get together with a few friends and family to celebrate my graduation.

My New Jersey Shoreshots team participated in the Hoop Group Jr Elite camp over the weekend. I am going to the one being held on August 21 & 22. I hope that they all did well.

I'll be heading out to San Diego, California on June 25th through the 28th to participate in the Adidas Phenom Camp. There will be a lot of good competition out there. I'll be looking forward to playing with and against all of them.

I am glad that school is over. Now I will have more time to work out during the day. Those workouts will include strength and conditioning, agility and working on my game. This year, I have enjoyed watching the NBA playoffs. I usually only watch the college games and the NCAA tournament, but this year I am glued on Kobe Bryant. I love his game and his dedication to the game.

Later this week, I want to check out that new movie "The Taking of Pelham 1-2-3". That looks like it is going to be good.

The Laker-Magic game is now in overtime and I will now bring this to a close.

See ya'll on the court!
