Ahead of the new season, many middle and high school teams are in the midst of strengthening their strength through Stove League in each region.
The high school boys and girls are preparing for the new season by training with university teams in Gyeongnam Gyeongju and Jeju Island, while the girls’ high school boys and girls are preparing for the new season in Sacheon, Gyeongsangnam-do.
This season, with the first competition of the season scheduled in Haenam in March, in the jump ball, we met the players who are expected to be active in each school in the south high school this season.
The next player to be introduced is Jeong Si-woo (184cm, F), the core of Chungju High School, who reorganized the team last season.
Although Chungju High School is in the lower ranks, it has been growing steadily since coach Lee Chang-soo took over in the 2022 season, surprising officials.
At the center of Chungju High School, which is preparing for the rebuilding calmly, is Jeong Si-woo, who has been steadily accumulating game experience since elementary school. Jung Si-woo played an active role as a big man in elementary school, and changed his position to a forward in middle school and continued to play.
Unfortunately, he has not been able to play many games due to injuries and team circumstances since he entered high school, but it is clear that he is the core of his team’s power.
He played 35.0 minutes in 12 games in 4 competitions in the 2022 season, averaging 8.9 points, 6.8 rebounds and 0.5 assists per game.
Coach Lee Chang-soo, who is instructing Chungju High School, said, “I want to say that I have done my part, considering the long injury and the situation where I have not been able to do normal team activities for a long time after entering high school. He showed a positive evaluation, saying, “After returning from injury and raising the sense of the game, it was not bad.”
Coach Lee said, “It doesn’t suit our team’s situation to show the highest level of skills right away, but as he has the most game experience among the team members, he is a player who will lead the team sufficiently in attack as time goes by. He did not hide his anticipation, saying, “If he supplements his quickness and physical strength, he will be able to perform better than now.” 메이저놀이터
Jeong Si-woo, who is in the process of rehabilitation from a shoulder injury, said, “I am concentrating on treating my shoulder injury while playing in the Stove League. He is lacking in many parts, but he is making efforts so that he can digest various positions in the team,” he explained about his collimation preparation.
He continued, “As the team’s main player, I haven’t been able to control my emotions well, but as the team’s top grader, I try to do things that are helpful to the team, such as rebounding, while reducing the ups and downs. I wish I could rise, and I want to become a player with good shooting ability like Jeon Seong-hyun.”
Although he still couldn’t complete the normal winter training due to an injury, Siwoo Jeong is clearly the player who stands at the center of Chungju’s offense. As long as there is enough time until the season begins, we look forward to a new season for Chungju, centered on Siwoo Jung, if we prepare calmly after rehabilitation.
