ATHLETE TESTIMONIAL

Name: Afam Muojeke 
Age: 26
Sport: Basketball (professional)

When did you start playing basketball? 
I started playing basketball when I was 7 years old. My favorite player was Penny Hardaway, when he dunked it looked like he was flying I wanted to fly too. He inspired me.
 
How have you liked your time at The Athlete Factory? 
It's been going well. This has been quite the learning experience for me. I'm always trying to learn each and everyday and this has helped me in numerous ways.

How does training at the Athlete Factory compare to other training you have done? 
Here at the Factory it's all about persistence and precision. That little difference can be big down the road. 

What was it like playing professional basketball overseas?
It can get difficult at times being away from your loved ones and the things you are most used to in life, but overall the experience is well worth it. Seeing different parts of the world and different cultures is always interesting. 

How are you feeling on the court now after working with us?
I'm beginning to feel faster in my movements. Also my change of speed and explosion are both improving. 

What are some of your best achievements in your basketball career so far?
I got freshman of the Year in the Mountain west (which was voted on by the league's head coaches and media members). I was also selected as an Honorable Mention All-Freshman by Collegehoops.net, becoming one of only 34 freshman in the nation to be recognized. I was also named an All-Freshman by Rivals.com for all conferences outside the ACC, Big East, Big Ten, Big XII, Pac 10 and SEC.
 
Where do you see yourself headed in the next year?
Wherever God takes me. Hopefully I'll be playing this game that I love on the highest stage but if not, somewhere nearby. 

What is in store for you this summer? NBA summer league? Excited for that?
I have a few workouts I'm preparing for in June. And the NBA Summer League approaching after that in July. It's an exciting time of the year.

Any advice for the kids out there looking to go far in Basketball?
The most important thing I'd tell them is to first focus on getting good grades. Your education comes first before anything.  Secondly, never to give up. Michael Jordan was cut from his high school team as a 10th grader, and now he's the best player ever. You never know where you'll end up with hard work and dedication.
