AAU Coach Evaluation:'Your description of Zaiyen as a player is on point!' I would like to add that Zaiyen is one of the hardest working players I ever had. 'He wanted to get better and was always willing to get in the gym to get extra work. 'He's a great team leader who led with communication and most importantly by example. Zaiyen was a pleasure to coach and I know he will do great things because of how hard he works on and off the court.

Coach Frank says:' Zaiyen is an elite athlete, extremely quick with a great motor and great bounce, plays much taller than 6'0!' He is a high energy player who impacts games as much with his skill as with his great effort.' Zaiyen can handle the ball well enough to create his own shot off the bounce and can hit the jumper at a very good clip to 18 feet out, also can knock down the occasional three pointer.' He is an excellent rebounder mainly because he outworks people but also because he reads the ball coming of the rim, he is quick off his feet and he has great bounce and long arms.' Zaiyen is also strong and boxes out consistently.' He has great defensive footwork and lateral quickness and can defend any position.' Is an excellent help defender, has a high IQ and the quickness to get into passing lanes or play off his guy and close quickly to steal passes.' He's the type of player that sets the tone for his teammates and the kind of player coaches love to have, brings his hard hat and puts in a solid effort!' Zaiyen is going to be a player that will provide productive minutes this year for a team that should compete for the state title and will no doubt be an impact player throughout his high school career.
