‘Sincerity + height’ combined, Hongdae high school big man Ryu Jung-yeol

 Ahead of the new season, many middle and high school teams are in the midst of strengthening their strength through Stove League in each region.

The high school boys and girls are preparing for the new season by training with university teams in Gyeongnam Gyeongju and Jeju Island, while the girls’ high school boys and girls are preparing for the new season in Sacheon, Gyeongsangnam-do.

This season, with the first competition of the season scheduled in Haenam in March, in the jump ball, we met the players who are expected to be active in each school in the south high school this season.

The 28th player to meet is Hongdae High School’s tall big man Ryu Jeong-yeol (209cm, C).

Ryu Jeong-yeol boasted an overwhelming height since middle school. Although his technical skills still need to be supplemented, he has drawn a growth curve little by little with his own weapon of great height. From last season, he began to spend more time on the court in earnest, participating in a total of 27 games and averaging 7.4 points, 9.4 rebounds and 1.6 blocked shots.

Coach Lee Moo-jin of Hongik University High School said, “My physical strength has improved a lot compared to last year, and unlike my colleagues, I am doing winter training every day. Now, I have come up physically enough to be able to do full-time work. He has gained a lot of confidence, so it would be nice if he could make good use of his height. I am also working on scoring points, rebounds, and block timing.”

“My mental strength has improved and my mistakes on the court have decreased. Since he is tall, his quickness is poor. If only this part is reinforced, he will become a better player. He is a sincere and hard-working player, so I wonder if he will see the light someday.” 온라인카지노

Coach Lee reassured Ryu Jeong-yeol’s existence itself.

“I am looking forward to scoring points after receiving and attacking rebounds. The height will probably be the biggest weapon. Even just standing under the goal, he is feared by other teams, so he is of great help to us. The wingspan is also 223cm, so it is powerful even with just one hand raised.”

Ryu Jeong-yeol, who combines the existing weapon of height with sincerity, said, “I am not indulging in winter training to make up for my own shortcomings. He puts more effort into making up for his weakness, physical strength and bottom-of-the-goal finish,” he said, telling the process of preparation for the season.

Continuing his speech, he said, “My role is to focus on actively rebounding and blocking shots and communication in regional defense situations. The goal this season is to win the team and rebound, and personally, I will try to challenge the defense prize.”

It is evaluated that Hongik University High School’s power has weakened compared to last year. In this situation, let’s see if Ryu Jeong-yeol will be able to catch the two rabbits of growth and grades by properly serving as his pivot.
