Junior Reggie Conley has caught the attention of the entire school with his extraordinary basketball skills. Starting his basketball career seven years ago, Conley has always been a fundamentally strong player on all the teams he has played for. He is currently one of the top guards on our school’s varsity team.
“I like the competitiveness. It’s fun being together with my teammates and playing with them,” Conley said.
Conley’s favorite memory this year was a game against rival San Leandro. The Trojans and Pirates fought into overtime. “It was a close game, a fight all the way to the end, we hit some shots down the stretch and got the win,” he recalled.
Conley says he can slam dunk, but hasn’t done so in a game yet; he’s “saving it for a special occasion.”
It all started when he was little. Watching basketball inspired him to start playing. As most athletes out there, the one thing he enjoys the most is winning, making all those practice hours and effort worth it. Consequently, his least favorite thing is losing a game.
“Reggie is a great basketball player, he is very strong minded and mentally tough. He is also a very confident player, he has a great shot and the will to get a win every night. He makes everyone around him a better player, he’s a great teammate,” said team manager Nick Cabral.
Conley has received tons of mail this past summer from college coaches, such as Santa Clara and Davidson.
This Milwaukee Bucks and Warriors fan has a long journey ahead of him.
