Torey Thomas
How is everyone doing my name is Torey Thomas and I have been playing Professional Basketball for 9 seasons. I am from White Plains, New York a small city about 30 minutes from New York City. I went to Holy Cross College in Worcester, Massachusetts and graduated with my Bachelors degree in Sociology and Pre-law in 2007. I am currently playing for Rosa Radom in Radom, Poland. We compete in the Top League in Poland and also the FIBA Europe Cup this season. I have traveled to over 30 countries and I played for teams in over 10 countries and I'm well accustomed to life overseas especially in Europe. In my blog I want to tell you about the differences in playing ball in America and Europe as well as all the other things you have to deal with while being abroad.
The first thing I will tell anyone aspiring to be a professional basketball player overseas is your work ethic has to outweigh your talents. There are so many talented players but if you aren't willing to put in the work you will not make it abroad. I am hands on and willing to answer any questions or comments you want know. Tell me what you are interested in knowing and I will give you the details.
