Bryson Jay Nash: Last year I played with Hoop City in Memphis and I played on a travel team with Mikey Williams from California and other top player from different places.
@PrepHoopsTN: What skills are you really focused on improving right now?
Bryson Jay Nash: I really want to play college basketball at a good school. That’s my main goal right now. I know I have to make good grades and work hard to be better than my competition.
My trainers make me focus on skill development, my shot and point guard skills. I know I have to be a leader and a coach on the floor as a point guard. I try to make other players better no matter who I’m playing with.
@PrepHoopsTN: When you have a tough life decision who can you trust to help you decide?
Bryson Jay Nash: I trust my family. Mainly my mom and my dad. They help me with everything.
My trainers and coaches have helped me a lot. When I was younger I wasn’t even the best player on my team, I’m just trying to keep getting better. That’s why I play, work and train so much.
@PrepHoopsTN: That is great.
Bryson Jay Nash: And I like University of Memphis a lot now too. It’s a cool school now because Penny and Mike Miller are coaching. Also, I recently met Mike Conley and he gave me a lot of good advice on being a point guard and basketball.
