2022 6'3 160lbs Lefty SG
A Average in School; IVY LEAGUE KID
2022 Lefty SG Felix Bain had NEVER PLAYED BASKETBALL before joining the Academy in August of 2016. In 23 months he has gone from, being CUT from his HS Team, sitting the bench for a below average AAU Team...to being looked at by 2 small CollegeS in Michigan! The transformation has been incredible! Best young Shooter I have ever had and I have had BIGTIME SHOOTERS over the years! He has grown a few inches this year and we are expecting him to top out at 6'4 when he is 18/19 years old. Projected Low D2/Mid D2 player. Currently averaging 20+ points in our Spring League in Michigan 2018. 30PTS & 8 Three Pointers IN FIRST Half against Ypsylanti HS in Flint Summer League Action! 40 Work Ethic is High Level, Coachability is High Level, NBA Range on the Jumper (IN GAMES..NOT JUST PRACTICE). With improved strength, ballhandling and lateral quickness we expect HUGE things from this player over the next few years. 1 1/2 to 2 years away from SUPERSTARDOM!

2015 Mr Basketball
6`0 Sr PG 150lbs Essex Hs
Dropped 45pts in a game this season.
Multiple 30pt games. Has improved significantly since October when he first began attending sessions at the Academy on a part time basis; which brings encouragement and inspiration to what level of improvements can be gained from March-August when he begins training on a fulltime basis. This PG has a tremendous work ethic, is extremely coachable, and the future is bright for Nik over the next 5-8 years as a basketball player. Either going to sign in the CIS, NAIA, D2 this spring/summer or take a full year to train with the Academy while taking University courses towards an Exercise Science Degree & sign with an NCAA school this Fall or Spring 2016.
``There is absolutely no wasted time explaining to Nik why we are concentrating on a certain skill or drill. I make my assessment as to what is needed for him to improve upon, create the drill, tell him what the task is & `on the fly` reason why & for how long we will do it. From there, he performs the drill with passion, enthusiasm, hustle and conviction. That`s why he has progressed at this rate. Some players come to the Academy with uncertainty, ask a million questions during the workout, are curious as to why they are working on certain skills/drills and its wasted time they could have spent making improvements with total focus & concentration. Which is why they usually don`t pan out. Nik is a true Òld School` ebta guy through & through. Trepanier, Smyth, Robinet & Abbey would of loved working side by side with this kid! If Nik would have started with the Academy in grade 8, he would of been already signed, sealed & delivered to a D1 school by now! And that is a true compliment 100%``
