Tonawanda News — "I think it was good because he was able to sit back and analyze what the older players last year were doing and just get comfortable with the high school bowling environment," Maduri said. "It is a lot different because Josh was used to bowling in Saturday morning league. So I think that was part of the thing that got him comfortable."
The combination learning from the more experienced teammates and getting spot starts last year gave Large the foundation for the success his is seeing now.
"It helped me get better," Large said."It was really beneficial because I could learn more from them (older teammates) because they've been on the team longer."
Maduri also believes that the time sitting, watching and waiting last year helped Large cultivate his desire to comeback stronger this year so he could earn a starting spot.
"I'm more comfortable because I saw how it was last year," Large said. "My confidence is getting better."
Developing into a true student of the game, Large has shown the maturity to dissect and adjust to whatever situation he is facing on the lanes.
"He definitely shows a lot of versatility and just a really good understanding of the game and the moves that he needs to make," Maduri said."And adjustment wise, he's always right on his game."
One look at Josh's scores proves it.
