SKILLS

Ronnie is a rare, athletic big man, who moves extremely well and runs like a small forward. He has excellent footwork from his background playing in soccer (football) and shoots well from many positions.

Ronnie has great ball handling ability from playing a guard growing up, and now at 7 feet in height, he dominates in Rebounds and is a great shot blocker. He has a wing-span of 7’6”, and a 35 inch vertical. He dunks with ease and has great touch both inside and out.

He can play face to the basket moves, and is also adept at back to basket moves attacking the rim. He finishes well with both hands. His post moves have been compared to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, especially his hook shot.  

On defense, Ronnie can guard post and guards. Ronnie has a high basketball IQ and is an extremely hard worker, on and off the court. He has a great attitude and intangibles that make the whole team better. A true leader.

Ronnie has an Anthony Davis-type body. The resemblance is so strong that Ronnie was cast as Anthony Davis's Goon Squad alter-ego "The Brow" in LeBron James's Space Jam 2 movie! 
 

Ronnie played a brief stint in the NBA with the Los Angeles Lakers, as well as appearing for several G-League teams throughout his career. He has represented the El Salvador national team several times, most recently in 2021at the Americas World Cup Qualifiers, where he scored 14.6ppg, 10.3rpg.

Ronnie is a  high-character person with a warm personality. He lives in Los Angeles and trains full-time with NBA trainers.
