Biography

Born an only kit to a middle class family, Roni was loved and spoiled very much by his parents. They always made sure that he had the best shelter, education, and luxuries that they could provide. Roni was always thankful and never asked for much.

Roni loved sports but due to his height he was often overlooked by his high school coaches. After trying and failing to make any of his high school sports' teams, he decided to focus on one sport to build his skill in. Roni wholeheartedly chose basketball, loving the use of individual skill with teamwork. He worked day and night, week after week, developing a nice set of dribble moves. Over the summer Roni made frequent trips to Atlanta to participate in pick-up games.

Playing with others he noticed his seemingly natural ability to find the open man on offense and get him the ball, while making it difficult for anyone to get around him and hastily stealing the ball whenever he saw the opportunity when playing defense. His sneaky stealing tactics, along with being a raccoon, earned him the nickname Pickpocket, which he proudly adopted.

His parents took a hard hit when the economic crisis began to unfold. His father was left jobless and his family was steadily losing money. Roni looked for a way to help, wanting to repay his parents. He only had a year of high school left, and he decided on something that was just a farfetched dream years before. He wanted to play in the FBA. Roni was distraught to find that he didn't make the basketball team his senior year, his coach telling him that he was "just too short" to play.

Roni had given up on his plan and graduated high school with honors. He was granted a scholarship to Braylor college in Atlanta. He went, happy that he wouldn't be far from his parents. Roni found out about Braylor's basketball program, and with renewed vigor, attempted to walk-on to the basketball team. The coach accepted and he made the team due to Braylor's minute amount of players, though he was held in the deep reserves. Roni honed in on his skills while he was with the team, becoming an excellent passer and stealing the ball effortlessly. However, he still hadn't played in an actual college game.

His chance finally came when the two other point guards had season ending injuries, leaving Roni to finish out the season. Roni made the most of his opportunity, leading his team to March Madness with record setting assists and stealing numbers. Braylor failed to win it all, but Roni was proudly presented with the Defensive Player of the Year award. His community had gotten behind him and he was named the starting guard for next season.

After three years of playing at college level Roni's family was still struggling from the recession. He decided it was time to try and move on to the FBA. He wants to support his family and the FBA is his best shot.
