Being A Great Player Is An Uphill Battle
It's a widely accepted theory that great teams are made during the season and great players are made in the off season. If that theory holds true, returning sophomore Mykiea Russell can look forward to an awesome sophomore season. Not only is she competing with and against D1 players in the famous Say No Classic summer league in Los Angeles, but she is also working out under the direction of coach/trainer/author Sue Favor. Their most recent workouts consist of running the sand dunes at Manhattan Beach. Next March when Mykie still has gas in the tank, when her legs and lungs are as strong in the last five minutes as they were in the first five minutes, she's going to look back and know that her uphill sprints in the heat of July has paid off.
