Three years later, Chapman’s perimeter game still is strong, but he’s almost impossible for high school players to guard down low. He has an arsenal of moves in the post, including a devastating baby hook, and he can finish near the hoop with either hand.
"My post game is 10 times better than it was coming into high school," Chapman said, attributing the credit to Puzey, who learned how to coach big men from his college coaches, Rick Majerus and Stew Morrill.
If Chapman has come this far since junior high, where will he be in a year and a half, when he has picked a college and is beginning the next stage of his career? Where will he be in three years? In four?
Puzey wonders these questions. They will be answered in time. For now, he will keep preparing Chapman for what comes next.
"The sky," he said, "really is the limit for him."
