Just like his basketball idol, Drailyn Alfred has been told he’s too slim to succeed on the court.
However, he’s seen one of his favorite players Kevin Durant play, and is determined that isn’t the case.
“When Kevin Durant first went to the NBA most people thought he was skinny, but he turned out to be one of the best,” Drailyn said.
Drailyn was a sophomore on the boys basketball team this year, at the age of 8 he had the urge to become a basketball player from watching his dad, Mr.Alfred, and main role model Kevin Durant show off their talents with a basketball.
Basketball isn’t the only thing that defines him, though. He also enjoys playing video games, such as 2k and Fortnite, and he likes reading a lot of fiction books.
One of the things Drailyn is passionate about is spending time with his family, when he’s not busy with basketball, he also hopes to become a police officer someday.
“I want to become a police officer to protect my community, and also to inspire others to become a police officer.”
