M14HOOPS SUCCESS STORY:  Becky Williford

Congrats to Becky Williford on her outstanding freshman season at Roosevelt University (Chicago).

From Matt Miller: Becky was client #1 of M14Hoops. I started with her when she was a sophomore and she continues to train with us as well as help out with our summer camps. Becky tore her ACL going into the July evaluation period before her senior year. It was devastating; but she truly embodies everything this company stands for. Dedication, positive attitude and willingness to fight through adversity are all characteristics that Becky displayed and it is the reason she was able to step in as a freshman, run the show and make history for the Lady Lakers.

I’m extremely proud of her as she has taken all that she has learned and applied it in college (on and off the court). Becky is a great example of what hard work and dedication can do. Congrats to her and her family on her achievements this season!

From Becky:  “M14 has boosted my confidence as a point guard and floor leader. Before I joined M14, my decision making as a pg was not where it should have been. However, Matt and the whole staff worked with me and incorporated various fundamentals and skills. M14 prepared me for collegiate basketball by teaching me when to make the right decisions on the court and how to handle the pressure from defenders. A huge weakness that I had when I first started was that I had no “flavor” as a pg–I was very one-dimensional. But over time, M14 has equipped me with moves that have helped to improve my game.”

Each of these players came out of the 2011 MMSS with an in-camp ranking of #1.  “It’s great to see that these three are not going to hide from competition. I’ve watched all them over the past couple months at tournaments and all of them have improved since last summer season,” Says MMSS director Matt Miller.  This years showcase is posed to be even more competitive with the number of players who have been invited from other states.
