Luis Vera, the new gem from Paraguay of Orange1 Basket

Since the beginning of the year, Bassano del Grappa is the new home of Luis, the most promising prospect of the 2009 vintage in South America. A 1.98 guard, Luis has participated in the U17 (2023) and U15 (2022) South American Championships in recent years, being the youngest participant in all competitions and registering important performances. Mother Lourdes and father Gustavo chose to accept the route at Orange1 mainly because of the high academic level he can achieve. School and education are one of the best tickets out of Paraguay. For him, Orange1 Basketball and Orange1 Foundation have provided a scholarship that will allow him to study and play at the highest level. Luis’ dream is to be able to graduate with top marks and, thanks to basketball, go and play in the United States at university. Hoping that this is just the beginning of a long journey, we welcome Luis.
