What’s going on? My name is Myles Stute, and I reside in Washington, D.C. I attend Gonzaga College High School in Washington, D.C., and play AAU for Team Takeover on the EYBL circuit. Welcome to my journal! Throughout the upcoming high school season, I’ll be doing some journal entries about how life and the season is going.


Anyways, going to Gonzaga has been an amazing experience so far. My first 2 years of high school have been more than I could have ever asked for, in my freshman year winning a WCAC championship behind an insane group of guys and learning the ropes, as well as falling short in the championship last year. This year, however, I’ll be called to step up a lot more than I’ve had to and be a leader for the team, as well as one of our key guys. It feels great because this is exactly what I’ve been working for, so it’s only motivation to keep going.


Outside of basketball, I do a lot more than many might think. I love to read and do photography, as well as study journalism. At Gonzaga, I’m currently taking a journalism class that has helped me come to understand what it’s like to be a news anchor, conduct interviews, edit videos, and so much more. I love the school side of Gonzaga, and the basketball side of Gonzaga is what I’m really looking forward to this year. I want to be one of the greatest to ever play the game, and what drives me is my passion to be better than I was yesterday, each and every day. That’s not only in basketball, however, but that’s just in life as well. Every day I have to better than I was the day before. This season means a LOT to me. Last season, losing to DeMatha by 1 in the championship gave me a constant reminder of what it meant to lose. I hated that feeling, so every day this summer when I didn’t feel like working hard or giving my all, all I had to do was think about how much that hurt, and how it’s only going to be the beginning of me being great.


So far, this preseason has been really rigorous. As a team, we’re starting to gel together and really bring the intensity and energy that’s needed to win a championship in the WCAC. Every day before school, my day starts at 5:10, I get up, brush my teeth, get my stuff together, and then head to the gym for a workout before school. I’ll end at about 7:30, and then head to school which starts at 8:10. I have class from 8:10-2:45, and depending on the day, we’ll either workout from 3-6 or have open gym from 4-6. It’s been great to start gelling with this group of guys before the season begins on November 8th. I’m excited for this upcoming season, and I can’t wait to make another run at the WCAC championship!
