Miguel Jenaro, veteran and trade for the inside game of CD Becedo
Miguel Jenaro (2-5-1983) joins the CD Becedo squad to reinforce the interior position. The natural pivot of Santander will accumulate two decades behind him this season playing in FEB categories, since in 2001 he did so for the first time in Baloncesto León.
It is defined as “a team player who adapts to what the coach and the team need at all times.” On the other hand, he highlights that “he seeks contact and over the years he has improved the longer distance shots and the reading of the spaces”. He also considers that “he can still contribute a lot on the track, especially to young people and in things that are not so clearly reflected in the statistics.”
Before making the leap as a professional player, he trained at La Salle in Santander until in the junior category he moved to the Basque Country to play in one of the most prolific quarries in national basketball, Siglo XXI. In the 2001/02 season, once his training stage was over, in León he enjoyed his first opportunity to play in the EBA League. He would remain there until 2003. That same summer, he would go down a step, to Primera Nacional but continuing in León, led by Agustinos León. In 2004 he moved to Bierzo for the military in the Ciudad de Ponferrada for two seasons.
In 2006 he left for Italy to play in Serie C and returned to Ponferrada the following year, already in the EBA League. In 2008, he returned to Cantabria until 2012. During those years he played in Pas Piélagos, CD Estela and SAB Torrelavega, always contesting the fourth national category. In 2012 he changed his scene by signing for Virgen de la Concha de Zamora and in 2013 he had the opportunity to play in LEB Oro with Quesos Cerrato Palencia, reaching the stage of promotion to the ACB. In recent years, he continued practicing basketball at CBT Torrelavega B in 2017, after being inactive for two years and at Reocín Basketball.
Chisco Marañón puts the magnifying glass on the new center of CD Becedo: “Miguel Jenaro is a player with an important physical presence. This player is characterized by being a versatile player in the inner game, a very good rebounder and passer, with leadership skills and with enormous experience in this category. We hope that Miguel will give us experience and experience in a young team that can play in indoor situations, but at the same time help us with his good launch. In the same way, we are very confident in his defensive and rebounding ability ”.
Miguel Jenaro is the ninth confirmed player on the CD Becedo squad. It is the sixth incorporation, after those of the Cantabrian power forward Diego Ibarlucea, the Canadian point guard with a Ghanaian passport James Agyeman, the Jaen forward David Melero, the Cantabrian guard Narciso de la Llama and the Mallorcan power forward Pere Joan López and the renovations by Ismael Diarrá, Jorge Gil and Pedro de Haro.
