Bio: Drake Touchdown is from the Lone Star State Texas. He started to play basketball at the age of 13 in middle school. Coaches were amazed by his talent of playmaking skills and finding ways to create shots and dishing the pass for his teammates to make the basket.
Around Highschool time, Drake was one of the few freshmen who jumped from the freshmen team to the varsity team as his teammates were shown why the coaches made the jump. When on the floor Drake played like he was a vet in the league and knew when to make the crossover through two defenders to make a basket, when to throw up the opp, and every now and then do flashy passes to get the ball to the teammates hands.
He has lead his highschool team to the playoffs all 4 years of highschool, but tend to be eliminated by the first or second round not being able to advance after that.
Drake had the intention of attending a college University, but opted out and decided to play for his family's origin in the Philippines.
He skipped the college requirement and went to the draft at the age of 20.
