London, KY (Future150) -- Striving hard to be the best is the name of the game.
Peyton Broughton (Class of 2017, North Laurel Middle School/ Derby State Thoroughbreds) is a young point forward type of player who puts in the extra work to be the best he can be.
He can handle the ball very well for his size; bringing the ball down the court, and initiating the offense when needed. Along with his ball handling skills Broughton is also a very good passing player, setting up his teammates for good open looks at the basket.
Scoring the ball is something that he does well too; he has no problem scoring the ball. Add in his nice rebounding skills and great on-ball defense, and then you have a very good all around player.
Although he knows he has the talent, he advised that he wants to continue working hard every day, because he knows that will allow him to reach all of his goals.
“My ball handling is not where I want it to be, it has to continue to improve,” Broughton told Jr. Future150. “I also want to increase the consistency of my jump shot.”
He has the mindset to be great and is doing the right things to ensure that happens.
“I recently attended the Jr. All-American camp and made the all-star game,” he advised. “I also went to other camp such as Blue Chip Basketball Camp, Elite Hoops Showcase, and the NOLA Primetime Super 60 event.”
The plan is to continue to attending similar elite level events so that he can help get his game to the next level.
“I hope to attend the Fab Frosh Camp and a Future150 camp within the next year, along with as many other camps, tournaments, and events as I can,” Brougton provided. “I know these events will help make me a better overall player.”
With the hard work that he is willing to put it in, he should have no problems reaching all his goals one day.
