After a major setback during his sophomore season, Heritage’s Ken Chika is eager to get back on the floor this summer.

The 6’2 guard is a playmaker and most of all a skilled distributor, and he’ll have the next two season with the Patriots to make his mark in Northern California.

“What I would say I do best on the court is driving to the basket, finding the open man for the pass, and playing very good defense,” said Chika during a recent interview.  

“And I believe that all areas of my game could use a little work, because there is always some room for improvement.”

Chika suffered a season-ending injury prior to tryouts last fall. As a result, he missed what would have been his sophomore season with Heritage.

He’s now hungrier than ever top get back on the floor.

“This only motivated me to work harder on my game in preparation for my junior season,” said Chika. “Next season, I want to become more of a leader on the court, and work on all areas of my game to be the best basketball player I can be.”

He’s still out with the injury, but is eager to get back to the court this summer for his 16U season. His goals are simple: to get back in the swing of things, and become a better basketball player.

“I will be playing AAU basketball as soon as summer comes,” said Chika. “My goal right now is for me to train and develop myself to be an even better basketball player.”
