Joe Francis is a 13-year old combo guard from Adrian, Michigan. In his latest 8th grade season Francis averaged 22 points, 7 assists and 4 steals per game.
Francis looks up to Steph Curry and tries to model his game after the NBA superstar. The biggest strength in his game is his ability to shoot the ball; he can also get to the rim and make plays for his teammates. Francis also takes pride in his defense, playing the passing lanes, along with good individual defense.
For the upcoming season Francis has some big goals, he is attending as many camps, tournaments and showcases as he possibly can in an effort to improve his game. On February 17th he will be attending the Bates Fundamentals Camp in Ypsilanti, Michigan. It will be fun to see him play against some of the best competition in the state of Michigan, it will also be interesting to see how he tests in the Y1ACT testing.
Francis ultimate goal is to one-day play college basketball. He has some schools in mind but knows he has a lot of hard work ahead.
“Just about every kid who loves basketball has a dream of playing D1 basketball, being on T.V. and playing in the NCAA Tournament. Said Francis. “That is a dream of mine too, but to have the opportunity to play college basketball at any level would be awesome.”
