Thomas is preaching to the choir that practice is essential for success. An aspiring pastor, he has faith in how developing a strong work ethic through practicing for the Hoop Shoot translates to a strong work ethic in the real world. He’s been a youth leader for years, and he believes that experience will help him encourage the 2022 Hoop Shoot National Finalists.
Advice for 2022 National Finalists: “Enjoy the moment. Don’t worry about what would happen if you fail. Just trust your form and preparation and have a good time. Your worth is not based on how many free throws you can make at Nationals.”
