The Process: #LoveOmie

Part 5 📜: #LoveOmie

Tre Gomillion is a 2018 guard out of Aquinas High School in Augusta, Georgia. He averaged 20 points, 13.6 rebounds, 4 assists and 3 steals as a junior and was named Class A-Private Second Team All-State. This is his off-season journal. This is The Process.


Sorry for the absence lately, lot of things happened this summer.
On that note, the surgery went very well and God sent down a blessing during my surgery. With the intention of it being a decent tear to my meniscus and me being out for 4-6 months, it was a minor tear and a calcium build up resulting in about a quarter sized piece  of bone in the back of my knee. So thank you God for that, I have started my physical therapy and should be back to 100% around August.

With that out of the way, I told you previously that grandma had some health issues, to be precise she unfortunately had cancer. She is way tougher than me and fought her precious heart out. But unfortunately on July 3rd, 2017 she passed away and joined God to be my guardian angel throughout this whole comeback. She was my biggest supporter and literally every time I saw her she told me “I’m gonna live til you make it to the big leagues, just don’t cut your ponytail so I can know which one is my Tre Tre.”

This time has been tough but it is just going to without a doubt make me mentally stronger. So now it’s time to rehab and make my grandma proud. Now she can watch this process from the best seat in the house… #LoveOmie ❤️

Part 4 📜: God’s Plan 🙏🏽

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.

The Process: Masters Weekend

Part 2📜

Tre Gomillion is a 2018 guard out of Aquinas High School in Augusta, Georgia. He averaged 20 points, 13.6 rebounds, 4 assists and 3 steals as a junior and was named Class A-Private Second Team All-State. This is his off-season journal. This is The Process. 

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”.

The Process: Tre Gomillion – The Intro

The Intro📝

Tre Gomillion is a 2018 guard out of Aquinas High School in Augusta, Georgia. He averaged 20 points, 13.6 rebounds, 4 assists and 3 steals as a junior and was named Class A-Private Second Team All-State. This is his off-season journal. This is 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.

Top 2018 Stock Risers

Landers Nolley – Langston Hughes – Nike South Beach

From Lovejoy to Curie, Ill. to Langston Hughes, the well-traveled wing has found a home in Fairburn. The 6-foot-6 shooter now has two state titles under his belt after winning one in Chicago and carrying the Panthers to a Class AAAAAA championship this year. His monster season earned him a First Team All-State selection along with Class AAAAAA Player of the Year honors. Nolley averaged upwards of 25 points and 7 rebounds per game, highlighted by a 52-point outburst on November 22 where he drilled nine three-pointers. Nolley has played his way into the discussion as one of the best shooters in the nation. While he’s not a freakish athlete, Nolley has High Major written all over him with his ability to score the ball.

Will Richardson – Liberty County – E1T1

At 31.4 points per game, the smooth 6-foot-4 combo guard led Georgia in scoring. Richardson scored over 40 points six times including a 55-point showing against Bradwell Institute. Richardson took his game to the next level after scoring 19 points in last year’s state championship victory over Jonesboro. Richardson averaged 13.2 points, 5.3 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.8 steals as a sophomore before tacking on 8.6 rebounds, 5.3 assists and 2.6 steals and taking the lead scoring duties over from Auburn-signee Davion Mitchell this year. With his senior season approaching, big things will be expected out of Richardson as he will be asked to not only get the job done on both sides of the floor, but to become a team leader as well. SEC and ACC schools have started to push for Richardson’s services.

Tye Fagan – Upson-Lee – Middle Georgia Supersonics

It took a while but Tye Fagan has finally cemented himself as one of Georgia’s top dogs. Fagan was named Class AAAA Player of the Year after averaging 21 points, 7.8 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 2.6 steals, leading Upson-Lee to a perfect undefeated season and state championship. The smooth 6-foot-3 lefty is best when slashing his way to the basket but also excels as a playmaker, driving and dishing to get his teammates involved. He has shown the ability to take his man into the post and has good foot work around the basket while also having a nice mid-range game. Fagan can be streaky from beyond the arc, but still projects to be a competent outside shooter. Defensively, Fagan is long armed and active on the perimeter, routinely picking up deflections and steals. Middle Tennessee State has been the first to offer, but High Major schools have begun to show interest. While he doesn’t play on a travel shoe team, Fagan’s team-first devotion has already produced one state title and with another year playing year-round with Zyrice Scott and Travon Walker, another state title and more scholarship offers are likely on the way.

Tre Gomillion – Aquinas – Southern Kings

The Aquinas Fighting Irish finished 26-2 this year in Class A-Private and took a trip to the Elite Eight. The Region 7-South Player of the Year and Second Team All-State selection was a workhorse for Coach Darren Douglas. Still young for his age at 16, the “Man Child” wing is starting to gain statewide recognition. With a frizzy ponytail and a linebacker’s body, the 6-foot-4 bowling ball plays with a junkyard dog’s mentality, not afraid to mix it up and punish smaller guards; his downhill assaults usually end in power finishes. He averaged 20 points, 13.6 rebounds, 4 assists and 3 steals as Augusta’s most underappreciated superstar. His non-stop work ethic has already poured over into the offseason, running over 20 miles a week and taking over 2,000 jumpers to improve his outside shot. Don’t be surprised to see Gomillion’s name surface on the D-I recruiting level by the end of this summer.

Rashun Williams – Calhoun County – Georgia Stars

The 6-foot-6 wing was impressive as anyone during state championship week as he went for 25 points, 8 rebounds and 5 blocks. Since he plays in Class A-Public, it’s hard to track his progress as easily as it is with larger schools. Even though he’s not playing the caliber of talent that the higher classifications see, Williams, the Class A-Public Player of the Year, still does what a potential D-I player should do: dominate.  The Region 1 Player of the Year was aggressive in the title game and gave fellow D-I hopeful Clarence Jackson fits when trying to slow him down. Williams attacked relentlessly from the left wing and got to the basket at will. He knocked down two three-pointers in the game, the last part of his offensive repertoire he needs to shore up before establishing himself as a big time next level talent. With another year on the circuit with the Georgia Stars, Williams will be able to test himself against athletes of the same ilk which will help his progression.
