Podcast: Professional Basketball Player Monty Boykins and Driven Fitness' Gary Vesper
Listen as George Muha interviews Gary Vesper, owner of Driven Fitness & Performance in Succasunna, about his experience helping athletes to become impact players on the field/court. Along with Gary is professional basketball player Monty Boykins. Boykins grew up in Western Ohio where he was a highly touted basketball recruit. After suffering a season ending ACL injury during his senior year of high school, he faced a huge setback to his basketball life. He dug deep and continued to have a successful career at Lafayette College. Again he suffered an injury (shoulder this time) his senior year in college which allowed him to get another year of eligibility. He took that opportunity to enroll at Pitt for a postgraduate degree and play for the Panthers. He's just finished a season playing abroad and is working with Gary and Driven Fitness to make a run at playing for the NBA D-League. You may recognize the Boykins name as he is the eldest brother of Julian and Chandler, both of home had fantastic athletic careers at Randolph and went on to play college athletics themselves.
