Diary Of A Baller: Jayden Pierre (Roselle, NJ) Final Entry

Jayden Pierre At Super Skillcase

Good Day, Spotlight Fam 

Jayden "JP" Pierre here with my 8th and Final Entry of my Diary. 

Monday, I woke up feeling a little tired. The school day went by extremely fast. After school we didn't have any workouts. I went home and took a nap. when I got up, I did my homework, ate dinner, then did some push-ups and pull ups before going back to bed. 

Tuesday, I was able to sleep late, and get some rest. When I woke up, I cleaned my room and played some 2k18. I didn't have to be at the school until later in the afternoon, when it was time to get on the bus, for our school trip to Six Flags Great Adventure. It was a fun trip, but it was pretty cold, so you really couldn’t enjoy the rides as much. I got home really late, so I went right to bed. 

Wednesday we had a delayed opening due to our class trip. The school day was short. After school we had our first middle school team practice. We had to get ready to play in a JV League the next day. After practice I had a three-hour workout with BadSocietyBball. We worked on a lot of different ball handling and ball control drills. We also worked on finishing through contact. After the workout, I went home, took a shower, and went to bed. 

Thursday morning, I woke up feeling good. In school, we went over everything we needed to know for final exams, we have coming up. After school, I went and got a haircut, then headed to the game. This was our first time playing together as a unit, we had back to back games and won both. we still have to work on a lot, but it was good to get the wins. After the game I went home, took a shower, iced my knees, and went to bed. 

Friday, I was up early and ready to get the day started. School day went by very slow. We didn't have practice or workouts after school. Later that evening I had a workout with BadSocietyBall. We worked on a lot of in game situation and IQ stuff, different reads coming off screens, reading the help defense, then we worked on all left-handed stuff. I really enjoyed the workout. I felt ready for the Super SkillCase the following day. 

Saturday morning, I was up early, got ready and headed to the Super SkillCase. We started the morning doing drills with Micah Lancaster and the I'm Possible trainers. Later after lunch, we played games. I played well, and my team won both of our games. When I got home, I iced my knees and watched tv until it was time for bed. 

Sunday when I woke up, my knees felt a little sore. My dad told me to ice them, and they felt much better afterwards. I laid down and rested for most of the day, until I had to get up and do my laundry. 

Thank You to Mike Melton, and the entire Bballspotlight family for giving me the opportunity to share with you guys, some insight of my life. Also, I would like to thank everyone that took the time to read my diary entries. To all my fellow ballers, keep working hard, on and off the court. It's a blessing to play this game that we all love. 

For the final time..
