Motivation Monday: Five-star C Will Baker dishes on what fuels his fire

It’s the voice in your head that that tells you to push past seemingly impossible fatigue on the gridiron. It’s the thought that keeps your motor running at a supreme level on the hardwood.

It’s dreaming of getting your parents that new house. It’s retiring your grandmother. It’s simply wanting never to be picked last again.

Motivating factors in sports range from the simple to the simply inconceivable, but they’re all necessary to the development of elite talent.

Every Monday we’ll catch up with elite athletes and get them to dish on the single most powerful motivating factor that’s gotten them to where they are now.

Today we caught up with Westlake (Austin, Texas) center Will Baker, a five-star prospect who is ranked No. 20 overall in USA Today Sports’ Chosen 25 for 2019.

The greatest motivating factor that’s gotten me to where I am today is… “Meeting my goals. I prayed every night when I was a kid to be able to play in the NBA. If that’s God’s will then I’ll get there, but I just try and work as hard as possible to make that dream a reality.”

Here are the fruits of Will Baker’s motivation.
