PB&J: Progress

Ryan "PB&J" Pierson is now ranked #26 in the class of 2010 centers, according to ESPN.


May, 2009: Pierson has completely changed his body since his injury a year ago. He is playing with more confidence in the low post and is using his strength to get position on his opponents at both ends of the floor. He is a little mechanical in his low post moves but does have a soft touch around the basket and can finish with either hand. He has a nice stroke on his faceup jumper and consistently hit the 15-17ft jumper as well as his free throws. He has ok lateral movement and must improve his fluidity of his low post moves.

I'm not one who is into the basketball recruiting industry, but it is nice to see that our work (since March 2008) has carried over to his sport skill and play. There is much more work to do, but this is one dedicated kid.

He couldn't ask for a better trainer. It's great to watch you work with your athletes at CFVP.
