Episode 22: Alabama Top 150 Camp & Wootten's Top 150 Camp
Georgia high school practices have gotten going this week, but last weekend I went to Alabama and Texas for the Alabama Top 150 Camp and the Wootten's Top 150 Camp. These events gave me the opportunity to see some familiar faces and get a look at a few guys I hadn't seen in the past. I focused on available 2021 prospects and 2022/2023 guys at both of these events. In this episode I go over the different players who stood out last Saturday & Sunday.
Episode 21: Carolinas Trip Review
We're back for Episode 21 after over a month off while finishing up the travel season. The fall means a lot of open gym and workout viewings; I took a trip up to the Carolinas last week to hit a few different spots and I highlight these here. Included are Dorman, Lake Norman Christian, Greensboro Day, Trinity Academy of Raleigh, and Myers Park. I really enjoyed getting around to see these different programs, they featured high-level players and high-level coaches. I will be going over some local schools that I recently watched soon, as well as giving a rundown of some Fall League action that I caught last Saturday in upcoming episodes.
Episode 20: Adam Gibbs- The Skill Factory
We're staying on the travel ball side of things in Episode 20 as TSF EYB Director Adam Gibbs joins us. Gibbs oversees the TSF EYB grassroots teams and has helped develop them into one of the top programs in Georgia and the Southeast. He discusses the program's recent event (TSF Day), the upcoming Battle For Georgia, the progress of TSF's travel teams, and a few other topics.
Episode 19: Mid-Summer Recap (Georgia)
We've been going strong with travel tournaments for over a month now and it looks like we'll have another month or so of events left, so I thought it would be a good time to go back over some of the action from July. Even though it's different, a lot of guys are benefiting from these events and it has been great to see. 2021 Stock Risers, 2021 Sleepers, 2022 & 2023 Prospects are all highlighted, along with some discussion on Travel Team Power Rankings. Our Updated Player Rankings will be released soon as well.
Episode 18: Matthew Cleveland- Pace Academy/Atlanta Celtics
2021 W Matthew Cleveland joined us for our first episode since June 4th to briefly discuss his recent Top 5 list of schools, his recent showing at The Opening on June 27th, and what he's been focusing on during the coronavirus pandemic. Cleveland has flown up the national rankings over the past year and showed last weekend why he may be due for another bump up into Top 10 territory.
Episode 17: Jay McAuley- Wofford
Next up is Wofford Head Coach Jay McAuley, who recently completed his 1st season leading the Terriers after previously being the Associate HC at Wofford. Coach McAuley is a Georgia native who graduated from Pope High School and then the University of Georgia. He brings tons of energy and intensity to coaching and has been a huge part in helping me in what I do. Earlier today, he spoke on the transition to being a head coach, Wofford's brand, and how their team has gone about addressing the current racial issues in our country.
