Tre initially injured his knee in the Sweet 16 vs. Stratford Academy

Everybody in life faces adversity, lately I have been challenged a little more than usual. In the past few weeks, I found out some family health issues dealing with my sweet grandma , my uncle , and today … I found out some issues with me.

Today is the day that I went in for my follow-up appointment dealing with my knee. No more than 2 weeks ago while working out I felt a pop in my right knee, I went to the doctor the following day which they later set me up for an MRI. As the pain in my knee went down and the swelling went down it was time for the results. And on June 12, 2017 the doctors told me that I have a decent size tear in my meniscus.

It was hard to swallow, but as the doctor explained the options to heal it, I realize more and more that this all apart of God’s plan. All I can do now is stay positive and just trust the process, trust God’s plan. Because at the end of the day, there’s way worse situations I can be going through. Now it’s time to recover and come back stronger than I’ve ever been.

Coming off the first live period, I have now gotten feedback from multiple sources on my weaknesses and what I need to work on. With that being said, it’s time to get in the gym and get ready for camps in June and live period in July. Constant weight room, running miles and miles, and then jump shooting, I have managed to slim down to 204 pounds in only three weeks. As well as working on my physical game, I continue to study in my bed at night great players like LeBron James, Russell Westbrook, and DeMar DeRozan. Just lay there and read their moves and how they react to certain defensive strategies. All of that is getting me prepared for what’s important and that it June and July and all of that is apart of
“The Process”.

The Process: Masters Weekend

Part 2📜

After introducing myself to you all, I was honored and blessed to play in the GACA North vs. South Junior All-Star game in Brunswick, GA. It was a great experience and I had lots of fun and met some really cool players from different parts of the state. Right after coming back from the GACA All-Star game, in my hometown (Augusta, GA ) there was a very big event coming to town, The Masters ⛳️ .  I’ve never been to the Masters so it was just like any other time, I was letting my knee rest coming back from a bruised LCL from my high school season. Right after giving it some rest I went to the gym. Putting up jumpers, and not trying to put a lot of pressure on my knee, me and my brother got some work in the weight room working on my upper body and my core.

Besides the gym, at home when I am sitting around or icing my knee, I think and go through times during the game in my head where I could have done something different. What I am mentally challenging myself to from now on is to come out of every game with out any mistakes or regrets. I just want to focus on coming out the game and not saying “I should have done this”, I’m really trying to perfect my game and touch up all of the flaws and add in a more consistent jumper.  I know all of that is not going to come over night , it’s all apart of this thing your reading called “The Process”.

Tre Gomillion
Hey, my name is Tre Gomillion and I am a 6-foot-3, 215-pound combo guard out of Augusta, Georgia. I am in the 11th grade and I attend Aquinas High School. I have a love for the sport of basketball; I have dreams of playing for a very long time. Right now I am going through one of the most important times of my life. Right now is a time that determines where I will be 5-10 years later down the road. With just finishing my high school season, it is now time for me to get straight into the grind. I have schools calling to see about schedules for my upcoming summer season, so I have to work like I’ve never done before. I’ve been blessed with many awards and honors from this past season, but my mind is set on one thing and one thing only… college.

With schools calling and opportunities knocking, I feel my work ethic is going to another level. During the week, waking my brother up at 5 AM and going and running 2 miles in my neighborhood before school. Whenever I  have the opportunity to get in a gym I am focusing on improving my jump shot . Those two areas (endurance and jump shooting) I feel are my weakest areas in my game. I am known for being a slasher, everything to the rim. But constant bruises and coaches questioning my jump shot made me want to expand my game even more.

I am excited about this upcoming journey and extremely blessed to share my journey with you all.
