It is very important to have a “coach on the floor.” You have found her! Coaches are you ready? Gemma is a true point guard that is very fun to watch. Watching her is worth the price of admission. Gemma has great court vision and shines in full and half court action. She is as equally exciting on the defensive side of the floor. She does not back down and does not worry about sacrificing her offensive abilities when her best defensive game is needed to stop an opponent.
Why should you be interested in Gemma? You should be interested in Gemma because she is the definition of a point guard. Point guards are said to have the most comprehensive set of basketball skills on the team, sets up the offense, can pass, dribble, shoot, move efficiently, and defend or stay in front of most players. On the court, Gemma is a dynamic player and positive influence on the team. She is a floor general and a true point guard. She has the ability to break defenders down off the dribble. She has good lateral movement and goes hard to the basket. She can keep defenses honest as she can hit the open jumper if needed. She is definitely a threat on both ends of the floor.
She is a member of the National Society Of High School Scholars and is ranked in the top 15% of her class. Gemma also volunteers at Killeen Family in Crisis Homeless Shelter as a scorekeeper for Killeen Parks and Recreation games, and an assistant coach for kids sports.
