Description Edit | History

Quote: "You thought I wouldn't make it? Ha! Dream on!"

This very tall player surprises his opponents with his agility and shooting accuracy. His reputation precedes him for having scored some of the most spectacular and crucial shots in the WBC, but Akil doesn't let this go to this head.

Akil was always a calm boy, rarely prone to losing his temper. Ever since he was small he was tall for his age and somewhat ungraceful. Other children taunted him calling him "Stick Insect" or worse, but Akil simply ignored them.
As the son of a widowed mother he spent a lot of his time alone, at home watching basketball matches or in the street playing basketball. Due to his premature growth, he used to play with the older children, and although that was a challenge because of his lesser physical strength, Akil accepted his disadvantage with integrity and tried to be good at distance shots.
He soon developed a mastery in long distance shots which was the envy of all his neighborhood. This was how he met "Old Dog". Thomas Gilmore, known as "Old Dog", was a former basketball hero who had fallen from grace after a serious injury. "Old Dog" was impressed by the skill and youth of Akil and offered to be his coach. The young sportsman accepted... the ex-player's training and they soon began to see progress.
In no time at all Akil was sufficiently prepared to be able to take part in the professional league. His unique shooting style meant the American School didn't have to think twice about adding him to its collection of promising figures, despite his playing style being somewhat less eye-catching than what is normally found in this School.
"Old Dog" continues to accompany him at matches as his personal coach. The presence of "Old Dog" is a clause that Akil always ensures is included in his contract with any team that wants to sign him up.
