Live From Bolivia – Coach Tyray Checks In!
Hello friends and campers – just shooting you guys a quick update from down in South America. I started off this last season playing in the top league in Colombia. Unfortunately facing some minor injuries and a tough losing streak they deciding to send me home and go in another direction. It’s never fun to be released but I believe everything happens for a reason.
When I arrived back in the states things turned and they turned quickly. My beautiful daughter was born in good health and within a week I was offered a job in Bolivia (San Simon) playing in the top league with an opportunity to compete for a title. We currently sit 7-0 heading into tonights matchup with the second ranked team from Santa Cruz. It’s certainly going to be a big test.
I’m playing well averaging 21.4 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 4 assists per game. I’ve been carrying the HSB banner down here helping and training kids with some of the drills from camps and the Academy. They may speak a different language but when it comes to hard work, sacrificing, and believing in yourself that message seems to be universal. It’s cool to know I’m not only excelling on the court myself but getting the opportunity to help some future Bolivian stars with their game.
Ok gotta go but I’ll keep you guys updated and hope to see you late this summer with some fancy hardware and more great stories to share. Keep working hard and stay tuned!
