“Whose on deck?”


where are they at the moment

Currently, we are enamored by the likes of Lebron James, Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook, and Kyrie Irving. In the NFL we love Tom Brady, Aaron Rodgers, Odell Beckham Jr., and JJ Watt. And what about the MLB and NHL, not to mention the Serena Sisters in tennis. But who, who will be the next group, or better yet the next great athlete to change sports. Because Lebron James is the biggest name right now. But he has been in the league for a while now and could be retiring in the next few years. So who will come along from college, or better yet, are they in high school or middle school now.

can we project the talent

In the past it was difficult to tell. But today, there are trackers who watch out for names already ranked in high school. They are individuals like that of the high school basketball phenom Zion Williamson who is a freshman at Duke University. So to a degree, we can project, but there is no real way to tell who will break out and be great. Because the tracking report is contingent on who stays healthy when they break out. If the big names get injured or don’t perform as well, we call them a bust.

sleepers

Does the name Steve Largent ring a bell? Well, a lot of people don’t know this name, but should because he is known for the grind in sports history. He came into the NFL unknown, but went on to become one the of greatest NFL players in history breaking numerous records. His bust is enshrined in Canton, Ohio, but you would have never known him, had he not have pushed past all the critics. He even beat out some names on the list that year for future Hall of Fame that were top draft picks. So here is yet another reason to not know the next best athletes because we constantly see the sleepers in the league.

I am from Racine, Wisconsin where I was raised until I graduated high school back in the year 2006. That entire time growing up in my mother's house, I was a student athlete. My goal was to embark on a general business career or athletics. But injuries through sports stopped a sports path, so I decided upon business with a focus in marketing. While attending undergraduate school at University of Wisconsin-Parkside, I began to write screenplays in my senior year. At first it was for fun, but I quickly learned writing allow me to transfer negative energy into characters I created. This led to a decrease in depressing mood swings, which in turn boosted my quality of life. After undergraduate school in May of 2011, I move to New York City for graduate school. While pursuing my MBA, I continued to write screenplays, but always wanted to write novels as well. I finished graduate school back in the year 2014, but wrote screenplays until I began thinking of my first short film, first First Day Fears. While finishing my fifth feature length screenplay, I started to write my first novel this year. So far, I have finished my first short film and working on my next one (Freedomless Speech), and recently self published my first novel (The Boy Who Could Talk To God) and short stories book (Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Volume 1). My feature length screenplays have been put on temporary hold to finish my short films and books, but I am making good progress on my sixth feature length screenplay. With year 2017 ending, I am currently writing my novel Precinct 86 and Faheem Jackson Short Story Collection Vol. 2. I have started teaching myself photography and will pursuing that by summer of 2018, along with my videography, podcast later on, and more research for my documentary.
