Sacha Killeya-Jones’ Trainer Doesn’t Want You to Sleep On Him Either

So remember this tweet from 3 days ago?

Well, SKJ’s trainer seems to share that same sentiment. SEC Country’s Kyle Tucker shared some words from Sacha’s personal trainer, Gilbert Abraham, on how much Sacha has progressed:

“He was the youngest guy on that team last year; he’s younger than several of the freshmen coming in this year,” Abraham said. “Some of the other guys were more prepared, and I don’t know how prepared from a maturity standpoint he was. When he started to get acclimated, he started to get better. That’s how he’s been since high school. Once he gets comfortable, he gets better and better and better.”

Kentucky fans sleeping on Killeya-Jones “don’t have a clue what he can do,” Abraham said.

Now we’ve heard it from not only the horse’s mouth, but from the horse trainer’s mouth. You can read Abraham’s full lineup of praise here.

With Mo Bamba heading to Texas, I sure hope he’s right.

    Still don’t think anyone is “sleeping” on him. Hope he improves his game and is ready to actually compete this year. He has a lot of upside…just needs to show it.

    Jared talked about how transitioning from high school to college is the hardest transition he had to make, I’d bet the same is true in basketball too. If anything, that should tell you how hard Cal’s job really is compared to how easy he makes it look

    What will this day be like? I wonder.
    What will my future be? I wonder.
    It could be so exciting to be out in the world, to be free
    My heart should be wildly rejoicing
    Oh, what’s the matter with me?
    I’ve always longed for adventure
    To do the things I’ve never dared
    Now here I’m facing adventure
    Then why am I so scared
    A captain with seven children
    What’s so fearsome about that?
    Oh, I must stop these doubts, all these worries
    If I don’t I just know I’ll turn back
    I must dream of the things I am seeking
    I am seeking the courage I lack
    The courage to serve them with reliance
    Face my mistakes without defiance
    Show them I’m worthy
    And while I show them
    I’ll show me
    So, let them bring on all their problems
    I’ll do better than my best
    I have confidence they’ll put me to the test
    But I’ll make them see I have confidence in me
    Somehow I will impress them
    I will be firm but kind
    And all those children (Heaven bless them!)
    They will look up to me
    And mind me with each step I am more certain
    Everything will turn out fine
    I have confidence the world can all be mine
    They’ll have to agree I have confidence in me
    I have confidence in sunshine
    I have confidence in rain
    I have confidence that spring will come again
    Besides which you see I have confidence in me
    Strength doesn’t lie in numbers
    Strength doesn’t lie in wealth
    Strength lies in nights of peaceful slumbers
    When you wake up — Wake Up!
    It tells me all I trust I lead my heart to
    All I trust becomes my own
    I have confidence in confidence alone
    (Oh help!)
    I have confidence in confidence alone
    Besides which you see I have confidence in me!
