…and Why he created the D1 Shooter
In College he played for the University of Portland Pilots where he set the the career record for 3 pointers made in 4 years (336) and is currently 3rd all time in the WCC. He also holds the school record for most 3’s made in one game (10) and in 2010 he led the nation in 3pt percentage at (.478) while averaging 2.9 3pt makes per game. Currently he is #20 all time behind guys like Ray Allen #14, Kyle Korver #10 and Steve Novak #7 for career 3pt percentage.
After college Jared played professionally in Germany for 1 year where he was considered instant offense and was 2nd in the league in 3’s averaging 9.0ppg in just 14 min of play. After suffering a back injury the next year he decided to hang up the shoes and fell in love with coaching and teaching his craft to young aspiring shooters.
I created the D1 Shooter for the kids out there trying to find out what it takes to make it the college level as a pure shooter. For me I never had the size, strength or uncanny jumping ability, I had to make up for all of that with my ability to shoot the basketball. This was something that did not come naturally. I had to dedicate myself to it. Not only does it require time but you must know the right things to work on otherwise you are wasting your time. My goal is to give kids a step by step program that teaches them the exact footwork, rhythm, and timing they must perfect. This knowledge coupled with my custom workout drills that I perfected over the years are the exact tools you need to make it as a shooter at the college level. All my drills are designed to subconsciously train your mind to only make shots not just shoot them. Every team needs a lights out shooter, and the game of basketball itself is favoring teams who can shoot. I have studied and learned from the best and now I’m offering my insights and workout plans to all aspiring shooters.Jared Stohl
