What's going on to everybody in MY SPACE! I'm still traveling, barreling through the road ahead. I feel a lot better now that I have spent quality time with friends and family. Now its time to get back on the J.O.B. I cant sit around and let my skill get too rusty, I'm still a baller. I'm the type of person that needs a constant challenge, unfortunately I can't find that back home. So I came to a place where that is possible. I'm currently playing for the Vermont Frost Heaves, located in Burlington, Vermont. I like it, because there is a constant challenge in front of me. Between the 3 and a half hr practices and the 3 workouts a day, I know that I am in the right situation. I told myself, this is the challenge I was looking for. A player at my level, has to stay challenged. I do keep in contact with some of my teammates and fans back in Gothia, but this situation is what I needed to get to the NBA. A lot was thrown at me the first day, I had to pick things up and I mean quick! This train is either going with or without me, so I had to lean on teammates and the two greatest coach's in college basketball Joe Lenard Hamilton, and Darren Horn. What I learned from those guy's and there staff has helped me through. I was lucky to have great coaches in the past and coach Will Voigt is living up to his reputation. This situation will help me reach a level that will shake up the summer league. I hope that people are getting ready because, I'm coming! Oh yeah shot out to PYNK MEDIA GROUP, for helping me organize my page and for the help in my career so far. My agent John Spencer for helping me and everybody who supports me, thank you. Until next time Benson Callier Professional Wings Journal QWT!!!!

“Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path” (Psalm 119:105).
I began my season with Gothia Basket with excitement. I love the game of basketball and was intrigued at the chance to play internationally. Personally, I set career benchmarks and welcomed challenges the new team and league placed before me. While the season did not start the way either the players or the coaches would have imagined; I have grown both physically and mentally from my time with Gothia Basket.
I wish the Gothia Basket organization the best season and future in the league. The fans possessed contagious energy that will be missed as I continue my career.
