ScoreStream’s Players to Watch-Zach Thompson

zach t1

Throughout the year, ScoreStream is always trying to keep a keen eye out for players who are excelling beyond their peers. In this week’s special edition of Players to Watch, we are highlighting Triopia High School’s multi-sport juggernaut, Zach Thompson. Thompson is the 5’7, 140-lb, go-to sophomore that Triopia depends on every game. In his first full season of varsity play, Thompson is playing on both sides of the football and is accumulating quite the collection of highlight tapes on the basketball court. ScoreStream connected with Thompson to ask him a few questions that the fans want to know!

SS: How did you begin playing sports?

ZT: Well, my dad is a football and basketball coach, so I feel as if I have practically grown up around sports. I always attended his games and quickly fell in love with the energy and atmosphere surrounding the games.

SS: What players or coaches have most influenced you to be the player you are today?

ZT: The first coach that comes to mind is Coach Monroe. He was my coach in junior high, at Winchester, and he has helped me grow a lot in basketball. It meant a lot to me to play for him and he was also a ton of fun to play for.

SS: The juke move drew us to want and show you off to more fans. Is the crossover your favorite move? What is your go to method when creating a scoring opportunity?

ZT: No doubt, The Crossover! It is my favorite move when I am trying to create space and drive to the basket. If you have the ability to confidently use both hands, it becomes straight up deadly. I usually jab hard with one of my feet to see if I can get the defender to bite. If he bites on the fake, you have them and can probably take them to the hole.

SS side note- check out the amazing play that brought us to reach out to Thompson here.

SS: It’s game day, what is your go to method for getting hyped up?

ZT: My pre-game method before playing usually consists of listening to some rap on the bus. But other than that, I HAVE to wear my lucky socks! haha I guess you could say I’m a little superstitious.

SS: Any emoji that describes you and your teammates?

ZT: The emoji that describes our team is probably the laughing face emoji 😂. Our team gets along really well and we also have some pretty funny guys. It’s just an all around good time with them.

SS: Playoffs are coming up quickly. Any goals for this season and moving forward?

ZT: I really want to get to the regional championship and I believe we are more than capable of achieving that goal. When our team gets going, we are a quality basketball team. As long as everyone does their job, we can beat anyone.

ScoreStream’s Players to Watch-Kayla Lis

kayla

Over the past year, ScoreStream has witnessed many young men and women work to transform themselves into the most skilled and prominent athletes in the country. In this year’s edition of ScoreStream’s Players to Watch, we have chosen to feature Neillsville’s outstanding Senior, Kayla Lis. Kayla is a 1-2 punch who combines an innate ability to drive to to hoop with a deadly outside shot. She has committed to playing next year for the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse Women’s basketball team. ScoreStream has recently been in contact with Kayla and we were able to do a short Q&A with her to help connect her with her fans.

SS-How did you originally become interested in playing basketball?

KL-My parents and my brother played basketball which is how I got interested. I’m lucky enough to have a hoop outside of my house, which allows me to shot all of the time.

SS-What player has influenced you the most in becoming the player you are today?

KL-Jenny Lindner was a big influence on me. She showed me that hard work can allow you to achieve your goals in life. As I watched her achieve many goals, I became inspired to achieve my own as well.

SS-What song gets you pumped up for competition?

KL- Thunderstruck ⚡️

SS-Any other pre-game rituals that you do to get hyped up for the game?

KL-My team and I jam out and get hyped up for the game by playing music on the bus and the locker room. As far as pregame exercises, I like to do ball handling drills in the locker room.
