A 6'6 300lbs PF known for his rebounding prowess and mind range expertise, Roy may not be the big man you want (undersize and to some overweight) but he's the big man everyone needs. At a young age he would hang out at the intercity courts and be the rebound kid while the older players shot around. Doing this for years, he honed an almost unnatural affinity for the art of the rebound. Studying the spin trajectory strength of shot, even the tendencies of the rim and ball itself. He eventually started playing with his older counterparts and polished that skill as well as an impressive array of jump shots at mid range. Called the ""Prince of the midrange"" his opponents knew to never give him an open shot inside the 3 point range, if he got on a roll it would be a walking nightmare for anyone guarding him. Body position and reaction are key in getting the jump on your opponent in securing the rebound. The next important thing is strength and when it came to increasing physical strength Roy dedicated himself to the craft almost as much as basketball itself. He had a strong motivation to get stronger since he was never particularly tall or fast. Most unvalued and underestimated his skillset since it wasn't as flashy and apparent as most skills sets, which was demonstrated when he was cut from his HS freshman team. The coach kept him on as a manager, maybe he saw something more the others coaches didn't. He was given a chance when injuries made it necessary for him to be put into a scrimmage game before the first game of the season. He didn't squander his chance, putting up a masterful display of rebounding and great shot selection he made it an unquestionable decision to give him a spot on the team and eventually starting position. He continued his dominant play in college breaking Collegiate records for rebounds in a game twice. While only playing one year at Atwood, he's still on the list of top Rebounders for a career there. Being a wild man at heart Roy likes to change the color of his hawk(hair) to weird colors and patterns when he can. Even doing a rainbow for pride month. An enforcer with tons of high energy that seems to be infectious to his team and the fans. One of those ""You hate to play against him, love him as a team mate"" type players, he is extremely coachable though his temper can get the best of him. Some call it his competitive spirit.
Strengths: A big body under the basket he has an almost god like ability to track rebounds, Great mid range shooter with a knack for getting space to shoot with high consistency. Great pick and roll screens and know where to roll to the basket. Able to pass from the post with a high pass IQ. While not a particularly strong 3pt shooter has been known to hit clutch open 3s when defense lacks off. Very quick lateral movements and can jump out of the gym, Very long arms.
Weakness: Not a very fast end to end runner, sometimes overly aggressive defender which at times can get him into foul trouble, not a dribble up the court player but can drive effectively, not a 3pt shooter and tends to look for his shot beneath the 3pt line, prone to technical fouls, need to improve a bit on his outside defense but serviceable, short for his position.
Drafted 9th to the Tennessee Moonshiners
