See, here's the thing about Tony Wroten. He's a sophomore, and he is really, really good at basketball. Nationwide, he's ranked number one in his class.
"If somebody's gonna be rated ahead of him," says Clark Francis, who compiles these rankings through Hoopscoop.com in Kentucky, "they've gotta earn it. And right now, nobody's even close to him. It's not even negotiable."
Everybody wants to be really good at something, but only the number two-ranked sophomore in the nation is truly jealous of Tony Wroten. It takes being able to withstand an enormous amount of pressure to be what Tony is. It's probably excruciatingly difficult to walk around all day with such a burden on one's 15-year-old shoulders, without bursting out in tears with every paper cut or dirty look.
My high school. Six thousand words, very few of which are boring.
