Willie Cauley-Stein’s “Singular Focus: The Leap (Ep. 1)”

Screen Shot 2015-06-22 at 11.40.38 PM

Willie Cauley-Stein’s first contribution to The Players Tribune went live tonight with a look at just how hard he has been working since declaring for the draft. In three months of nothing but working out in California with Karl-Anthony Towns, Cauley-Stein has added 20 pounds of muscle and even more elevation to his vertical, all while learning what it’s like to be on his own, away from the conveniences of UK basketball.

Ryan Capretta, Willie’s personal trainer, said of Willie’s new vertical leap: “I’ve been doing this 15 years and I’ve never seen numbers like that.”

Willie is amazed by the changes in his body and game. He has his eyes set on NBA Rookie of the year and, eventually, NBA All-Star.

Watch the first episode of his “Singular Focus” web series:

    Willie, I’m really impressed with the progress of your workouts. Keep it up. You’re an inspiration to many. Looking forward to hearing your name called early Thursday night.

    Go Blue. Go WCS. Go Team Blake!
