High School Coach Evaluation: Rahki is the best all-around shooter I have ever coached in my 6 years. He is also the hardest working player as well. He shoots, lifts, or conditions before, after and during any free time he has at school. His work ethic is tremendous. He has improved from being just a catch and shoot 3-point shooter into an all-around scoring threat. In addition, he has improved his on ball defense, ball handling, passing and rebounding. He has transformed himself into a complete player! Again, this is all through his tremendous work ethic, discipline and passion for the game. I believe his work ethic and toughness will take him as high as he wants to go and he hasn't reached his potential yet. I look forward to watching him grow this season as a player and leader for us. – Coach Robert Rice, Hermitage HS Men's Varsity Basketball Head Coach

From ASSIST High School TipOff: 'Rahki Person can go!! Energizer bunny! Takes no plays off. Can score and defends. Name to know!' – William Carter, ASSIST Foundation Founder

Coach Frank says: Rahki is a high motor, strong and athletic guard who can score in bunches! He can flat out shoot the basketball with NBA range and very good consistency, one of the best perimeter scorers in the 804 and perhaps the state. He shoots the three with great consistency, effortless. He moves well without the ball, has excellent footwork and catches the ball shot ready. Does a great job using the hesitation dribble move and shooting off the dribble in the mid range area. Rahki can also fight through contact and finish. After averaging over 15ppg game a year ago, the senior guard is right at 20ppg this season with a string of multiple three point basket games including two games with 5 or more! He not only brings high volume scoring ability but solid ball handling and passing skills and a reassuring floor presence. Rahki is an energy giver who plays tough, in your face defense but also rebounds his position and is an impact defender both on and off the ball. He competes as hard as anybody on both ends and still gives his team a consistent scoring output. College coaches need take note!
