Keyshaun has been a part of this organization since he was in 2nd grade, winning several championships including 5 state titles as well as winning the the National AAU title in Hampton, Va. this past summer. Keyshaun is a relentless defender and competitor. He handles the basketball well and makes great decisions. Simply put, he is a coach’s dream. Keyshaun keeps his composure and has excellent control. He pushes the ball in transition and finishes well. Keyshaun does so many things well…he is a winner.

Kobe has been a part of this organization since he was in 2nd grade, winning several championships including 5 state titles as well as winning the the National AAU title in Hampton, Va. this past summer. Kobe is a shot maker and one of the best scorers around for his age. He is very athletic and uses it on the defensive end to create turnovers. Kobe shoots the ball well from the 3 point line and is very crafty with the ball. Kobe loves to perform in the big games.
Landon is a promising 7th grader at Northwest Middle School. A natural PT Guard with super ball handling skills, and a tremeduous ability to hit the 3 pointer off the dribble and catch. However, Landon’s strongest attiributes is his attitude and ability to learn!
