Grew up in Elitzur Yavne... In a young age moved to Maccabi Rishon, but when he was 15 he arrived to Maccabi Tel Aviv... Skipped on his last year in the juniors team so he can join the senior club... After one year of loan to Galil returned to the "Yellows" and became a regular starter... Unfortunately for him, his breakthrough season came when Maccabi lost all 3 finals: Euroleague, playoffs and state cup... A year later, played a major role in Gershon's team which won the championship back... Probably Israel's brightest prospect... Very aggressive first step, huge athlete... Tall and physical with the qualities of a guard...
