A little about Alfonzo…

Having played basketball as a child with close friends and family, Alfonso began taking interest in the sport. He was motivated to start playing regularly by his elementary teacher. Basketball to him is something he enjoys doing. “When I’m playing, I have a clear mind. I don’t think about anything” is how he feels whenever he plays the sport. Alfonso considers his family to be the most important thing in his life, and plans after graduating in 2020 to go onto college and major in Architectural Engineering. Some of his future goals are going farther this year in the State Tournament an and hopefully become an All-City Player by next year.
