Bruce Gee is a 6’1 wing, capable of playing the 2 and the 3 will graduate in 2022 out of Paxon High School. Bruce started playing basketball when he was 7 years old and his love for the game has been increasing ever since. The game was his outlet and his way of being free from other things going on in his life.
Bruce’s passion for the game stems from the things going on in his personal life. He has found ways to handle the pain and exert his energy/ anger on the court instead of focusing on negative. His main goal every time he steps on the floor “I just want to always out play you and get a bucket over my defender.”
On the court, Bruce hasn’t really struggled much as he has always been a very skilled player in all aspects of the game. His main challenges come off the court. The main thing that Bruce has had a hard time with was the separation of his parents. Divorce can be hard for any young person to go through and it’s reasonable to see how it can have an impact on that individual’s life, the important thing is how he/ she rebounds from it.
Bruce has responded as well as anyone can figure. He uses basketball as a way to escape the negative in his life and focus on playing the game he loves. Bruce uses his frustration to fuel his fire and become an even more dominant player. Basketball has been extremely important to the young man and has been so much more than a game to him.
Bruce is a very talented player and brings a lot of skills to the table. The ones he believes separates him from other player are his: coachability, character, leadership skills, energy and scoring ability. Bruce is willing to do whatever it takes to help his team win and is not afraid to step up and show others the way to play when they may be slacking.
In terms of basketball, Bruce has some lofty goals. By the time he’s a senior, he would like to have a number of schools to choose from, be the top player in his class and get voted as Mr. Basketball in his state. Outside of basketball, he would like to graduate with at least a 3.8 GPA and, hopefully, finish at the top of his class. In college, he would like to major in sports medicine.
He knows what it takes to make it to the next level and is willing to put in the work. Let’s hope he is able to make his dreams become a reality and we wish him the best moving forward.
