  1. Scott is great player, no, exceptional. But what makes him truly great is he loves people, the game, and he’s a ton of fun to be with. Had a big impact on PB in our city.

  2. Too many newbies fail to put themselves in the ideal strike zone in order to hit the return. It’s either too far away from the body or too close. Anticipation is the key, then execution to quickly follow up and through toward the target zone.
    Obviously foot speed/footwork are key to accomplishing all of these. Cheers!
