Arizona Wildcat player Stanley Johnson is a 4 time California State Champion, making him the only player in the state’s history to accomplish such a feat at the highest level.
We’ve known Stanley since his freshman year at Mater Dei when he wasn’t even a starter on the team. We’ve seen Stanley transform from a role player to arguably the most NBA ready product in the nation today coming out of high school. You’ve seen the mixtapes and the improvement in his game from year to year but what you didn’t see is the hard work and dedication Stanley put into his craft.
Stanley’s journey to his 4th state championship and becoming the player he is today is not only impressive, but an inspiration to all up and coming ball players. He has a poster hanging in his room, given to him by his mother, that reads,
“The only way to discover the limits of the possible is to go beyond them into the impossible.”
There is no secret to becoming great at your craft, it just comes down to how hard you’re willing to work.
