Malik Gilmore is a freshman at Richards high school. He is planning on joining the basketball team and baseball team. Gilmore has already started conditioning for the basketball season.

“It’s only a few days, but it’s a lot of exercise. We do different drills, and we go to the weight room, these workouts really improve my skills,” said Gilmore.

Gilmore’s interest in basketball isn’t just on Richards basketball court. After school he also watches games on t.v. and plays pickup games at the park with his friends.

“I’m going to do my best to make the team and I hope my hard work pays off,”said Gilmore.

Gilmore does his practices every week from Tuesday through Thursday in effort to make the team this winter.

“I’m focusing on basketball this year but I think I’ll give baseball a try sophomore year,” said Malik.
