“Even if the toss is not good, you have to take responsibility.”
Heo Soo-bong (25) of Hyundai Capital now smells like an ace.
Heo Soo-bong, who is active as Hyundai Capital’s main apogee spiker, is playing an active role as the team’s ace, recording 330 points, 50.77% attack success rate, and 0.527 serve per set in 20 games this season. He ranks 2nd in serve, 7th in scoring and 9th in attack percentage. Unlike his last season, this season he is focusing only on offense at Apogee Spiker.
His presence stood out in the season 스포츠토토 V-Classic match against Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance held at Cheonan home on the 15th. Heo Soo-bong led the team to victory with 23 points, the most of both teams, and an attack success rate of 71%. If he added only one serve and two blockings, he could have recorded a triple crown (more than three each of serving, blocking, and back attack).
Heo Soo-bong, who we met after the game, said, “It was a tough game, but I feel good because I got 3 points.” Also, the attack success rate didn’t go up, so I tried to match with (Lee) Hyunseung during nighttime training, but it seems to have worked well.”
This season, Hyundai Capital is using three replacements in the right place. At the beginning of the season, Lee Won-joong was the starting pitcher, then Kim Myung-gwan, and recently, rookie setter Lee Hyun-seung, who is trusted by coach Choi Tae-woong.
Heo Soo-bong said, “All three players have different toss styles. It’s important for him to get his timing right. It’s not particularly difficult to keep a lot of breath during training.”
He added, “In the case of Myeong-gwan hyung, I have a sense of working together for the past two seasons, and Won Joong-hyung has also been working together for a long time. These days, I try to talk a lot with Hyunseung,” he said. Even if the toss is bad, I have the idea that I have to take responsibility.”
Hyundai Capital is running first in the league team blocking this season. 2.87 per set. Even in the individual blocking TOP5, Oreol Kameho (registered name Oreol) is in 3rd place and Choi Minho is in 4th place.
Heo Soo-bong said, “Oreol’s blocking is good. On the court, Oreoll says, ‘It’s good to hold it like this’. He also talks a lot with the players on the court. So he seems to catch a lot of blocking,” he explained.
