"I do not care about these people, I focus on the people who surround me. I am comfortable with this reality of professional sports. There will always be people who criticize us and, anyway, I'm the biggest critic of myself. I just want to meet the demands of my organization, "said Crompton.
With more year of experience under his belt, a quarter with long hair and the relaxed pace will be in context to raise his game a notch. Crompton therefore linger refine many aspects of his game with his leadership, his mechanics and analysis videos.
