Here is a little spoiler for Chapter 303.
Shiba is low on confidence. Shiba recalls his past and that he wasn’t a pro-level player from the beginning. The chapter focuses more on his past and some flashbacks. The story shifts to Shiba’s HS days, where his coach highlights that Shiba lacks physical ability. But he has outstanding skills. One day, an Esperion scout invites him to participate in Esperion’s practice sessions. He was stunned that a pro team asked him to join them. It was an opportunity for him. During the practice session, the pros tossed him like a rag doll, which added to his distress. He soon begins to lose faith. But then he figures out how to make it work with his skinny body. He started to listen to his manager, coach, teammates, and others’ advice to become stronger. He relied on his brain and eyes to cover his lack of physical ability. He remembers that while playing against Hiroshima, Shiba learned that other players were not thinking the same way he did. So, Shiba sends a killer pass, resulting in an Esperion goal. Since that day, he has started to believe in himself.
