JailentoBasketI read an article a few weeks ago about a athlete who was described by his coach as having “no chrome.”  His coach meant this as a compliment as the player didn’t need to be “polished” every day to look good and always was at the right place at the right time, knew his role and was that quiet leader. 

Immediately I thought of an AVC player on the team this year, Jailen Gill, 6’7”, 225 who will be playing the power or shooting forward.Jailen Gill, 

Jailen is the kind of player that you look at the end of the game and say “Another Double-Double?”  “Wow, when did that happen.”  Gill is skilled on both sided of the court, is strong , athletic, and excellent rebounder, shooter and quietly knows his role, winning basketball games. 

No shiny stuff here, just tough paint that doesn’t wear out when thing get bumpy.  No unnecessary chrome that needs to be polished.
