Q&A with Keon Gill

Name: Keon Gill

School & Grade: Middletown Senior

Height & Position: Six-foot guard


If you had to compare your game to any basketball player, past or present, who would it be and why? 

   “I would compare myself to (Kings point guard) De’Aaron Fox. He’s a explosive & quick player like me… He’s also crafty & can finish at the rim.”

Besides yourself, or anyone else on your team, who do you think the best basketball player in Section 9 is and why?

   “Hands down my bro (Kingston guard) Brian Moore. Brian is a all around great player and the work he puts in gets shown on the court. He is always in attack mode and takes no plays off.”

Any idea what profession you want to pursue after high school?

   “I wanna pursue in Sports Nutrition or Sports Med. I just want to involve myself around the game I love the most and be able to one day teach younger kids what I once learned.”

You’re only allowed to listen to one musical artist for the rest of your life. Who you listenin’ to?

   “My guy A Boogie Wit The Hoodie… He’s the king Of New York”

One fact that most people don’t know about you.

   “I’m an antisocial person… I really don’t like interacting with people even though I have to on an everyday basis”

What’s your favorite NBA team and why?

   “Lakers because of LeBron & because they make the right plays and how hungry they are. They may not have a great record but they go all out every game.”

What current trend makes no sense to you?

   “The male fanny pack thing… I don’t find that as a thing that boys should be doing.”

What takes up too much of your time?

   “Working out. Just trying to develop my body into a college body so I don’t have to do it when I hit college… Also sleeping because you need your hours and how I work out , those extra hours come in handy.”

What is something you think everyone should do at least once in their lives?

   “Everyone should go to either a NBA or college basketball game… The atmosphere is real different.”
