Diary Of A Baller: Terrence "Big Smoove" Williams (Clinton, MD) Entry #5

Terrence's PYBL Team 

What's up basketball world? 

This week was kind of a slow week because it snowed again in the area. On Monday we didn't have school because it was President's Day, so I got a two a day in with basketball and strength and conditioning. On Tuesday, it snowed so we didn't have school and I couldn't get out of the house, but I went downstairs and worked out anyway. On Wednesday, I went to my team strength and conditioning workout with our trainer. We all worked on upper body that day. On Thursday, I went to basketball workouts with Coach Leslie and got a good workout for 2 hours. On Friday, I went to strength and conditioning and worked on my speed and agility since that's a big thing I need to work on. 

Saturday was a busy day. I started off my day with 8 am TTO practice. This practice was very intense from start to finish. From my practice, I went to my final interview with Georgetown Prep, which is a boarding high school in Rockville, Maryland. After that I went to my PYBL games. PYBL is a local DMV league where middle school players can play and showcase their talent to the area. I have played in the league since it first started in 2013. I played my last two regular season games in the PYBL on Saturday. Our first game was against Anne Arundel County where we won 77-48. Our next game was against Southern Maryland. We knew that they were a scrappy team and played hard, but we came out and won 83-50. It felt good ending my final PYBL season undefeated. 

On Sunday I took a day off. It's okay to work out a lot but you also need time to recover your body and rest it for the next week's workouts. I spent my off day watching the WCAC high school semifinals between St. John's vs Bishop McNamara and DeMatha vs Gonzaga. The championship game will be between DeMatha and St. John's. 

Until next week Basketball Spotlight Fam!
