The Men of Bravo – Henry Konker, #34

Konker gets up for a big break in the National Quarterfinals

Carries a swagger and plays with confidence. Runs cutting lanes, throwing his weight around. Physical, lights-out defender. Made a highlight-reel, one-handed catch over a tall Doublewide defender in the National Quarterfinals last season to go with his massive layout grab in the Regional Final. Instinctive and aggressive. Defensive tempo-setter. Good play recognition, makes adjustments. Can leverage the field on hucks and cover ground. Good zone recognition. Rangy and athletic enough to play center field.  Often carries a chip on his shoulder from his small-school beginnings and practice player background.  Will let you know when he has you beat.  Has been known to layout an offender with one breathe and layout a good financial plan with the next.  Signed a multi-hundred dollar sponsorship deal with Bruegger’s Bagels in his first year with Bravo; has been known to ensnare unwitting coffee enthusiasts with a sub par iced coffee from time to time.
