He also likes playing defense, especially blocking shots.
“Since I was taller than everybody in high school, I got good at blocking shots,” he said. “It makes me feel like I’m the better player when I have a good block.
“The next time a player comes down court after I block them, they have to alter their shots. Last year when we played Southwest Christian, I blocked about six shots, and you could see in their faces they didn’t want to go into the lane anymore.”
After basketball, Stubbs wants to return to inner city Kansas City and help other youngsters understand the importance of learning.
“Hopefully, I can teach at an elementary school in my old neighborhood,” said Stubbs, who is majoring in early childhood education.
“Kids are dropping out of school. They need a role model. I also have several cousins I can help.
“Wherever God leads me, I’ll go. Life’s too short. You can’t think because you’re a person with a certain skill that you can go through life easy. You’ve got to work hard.”
