Sometimes, somebody pops up on the national scene, and it appears they are an overnight sensation. What most people don't realize know is how many years their success was in the making.
I first saw Anthony Pepe bowl years ago as an amateur at a tournament at Carolier Lanes in North Brunswick, NJ. He won. Later, I saw him bowl in the Masters. He cashed. Again, I saw home bowl in a PBA East regional, his first as a PBA member. He won.
His form is without a doubt the best I have seen in a long time. He generates a lot of revs, but makes it appear effortless, finishing with an open hand. And, he is able to repeat shots, as evidenced on the TV
More than that, I admire his mental game, his work ethic. He has a fan page on Facebook
, and I am one of his fans. He loves the sport of bowling, works hard, values his family and friends, and has a great attitude.
I'd say he is already great. The nation just caught its first glimpse on Sunday. Anthony Pepe is a young guy with a bright future in the sport of bowling. And, I wish him continued success. I know one of his goals is to be on Team USA. I look forward to seeing that dream realized, and to see more of him in the PBA TV
