Class of 2017 (submitted by Dave Burman)
Nick Ramsey (Swatara MS) - Nick has a very good feel for the game as a big guy. He can finish with both hands and has Kevin Love type outlet passes, which is rare for a kid so young. Huge upside... His problem is he has to develop more guard skills because there's no telling how tall he'll be.....

Elyjah Camp (Harrisburg Marshall) - This kid has an old soul for the game. He jumps into passing lanes, attacks the defense and can dish to teammates as well... Had a good year on the Freshman team for Harrisburg and has been playing well at Showcase's such as Nike Elite, Adidas Phenom, and Hoop Group Jr. Elite in Philly.... If Elyjah can stay focused on Books and Basketball, he can have a VERY BRIGHT FUTURE!!!

Brian Hall (Harrisburg Rowland) - Brian can jump out of the gym and defend like a monster. He cleans up the offensive glass and creates a mismatch inside. He's learning to put the ball on the floor which will make him even more dangerous... Heck of an athlete...

Chris Whitaker (CD East MS) - Chris is a tough and very confident guard who loves to win. He does whatever it takes to assure his team gets a victory. He can score from the wing or from the pg position. This kid has the ability to get triple doubles because of his all around play. As long as he continues to work hard, he'll shine...

Tyrece Little (Emmanuel Baptist HS JV/Varsity) - Tyrece was probably the most improve player over the past year. Known more for his defensive aggressiveness, he's learning how to pick his spots on the floor to create scoring opportunities. He can shoot the ball from the outside and create plays for others. He had a big year for EBCA varsity team averaging 8ppg and 7rebs as a 7th grader... Had some nice showings at the Showcases this Spring (Adidas Phenom, Nike Elite, Hoop Group Jr. Elite in Philly).... Should have a strong year for a young team...

Evan Chandler (CD East MS) - Evan was the most aggressive scorer in this group. He has a variety of moves getting to the basket. Once he gets going, it's difficult to stop him. This kid is getting stronger and stronger so by time he steps into HS, he'll be physically ready for HS ball...

Chris Henderson (Steelton MS) - Chris is a warrior that any coach would love to have. He plays at 110 mph and never takes a break. This being only his 2nd year playing organized basketball, he has a big upside. Chris finds a way to put points on the board. Look for him to play a little guard this year for Steelton as he develops his game.....

Austin Gilbertson (St. Theresa's) - Austin is a flat out ball player. He has a little flash in his game and knows how to get the job done. Had a great summer playing with Brak Bred...

Darien Perez (Susquehanna) - Perez has improved every time I watched his games.... He once once strictly an inside guy but now he's worked on his perimeter skills.... He can defend tough and is a super athlete... He may grow to be 6'4 so watch out for him in the near future...

Grey Hess (Cumberland Valley) - Grey has come on strong this season and also this Spring.... He can shoot the ball from deep but he is also attacking the basket very strong.... He'll end up being about 6'4 or 6'5 by time it's said and done.... CV has a good one here... Will have the chance to play up this school year if needed...

Jermir (Moody) Thomas ( Susquehanna MS) - Was once an undersized PF now he transformed into a nice WF..... He finds a way to be effective inside and outside..... Moody can defend anyone from the 1 to the 4 position with his wing span. If he can grow to be a 6 footer, skies the limit for him.

Justin Henry (CD East MS) - Justin is the most effective little guard in this bunch. He always tend to hit big shots or get key rebounds at the right time. Had a very good summer.... Justin is willing to compete with anyone, gotta love that...

Jordan Gillis (Swatara MS) - Jordan has speed for days and has really picked up his defense. Always known for shooting the basketball, Jordan has now built a reputation of being a lock down defender after his performance in the Keystone games last summer.....

Tito Flemister (Harrisburg) - Tito stock is rising... He loves to compete and is getting better and better at the pg position... He can shoot the ball just as well as anyone around.... Earned top playmaker at 5 star while also getting allstar Co MVP with Chris Whitaker this summer...

Ahmir Wright (Harrisburg Downey)
- Wright is a terror on defense... He moves his feet well and works harder than anyone... Has a huge upside because of his will to work hard.... He understands the game so it's a matter of time before he jumps over other kids in his class...

Ben Green (Holy Name)
- He's a fast guard who loves to score the ball when given the chance. He can make plays for others but at this stage, he prefers to create for himself. Very good scorer for his size.

Kentrell Rucker (Susquehanna) - One of the hardest working kids in the area, Rell is always working on his game... Has very good timing and jumps into passing lanes at the right time, all the time... He plays both guards spots and is a very unselfish player... Had a great summer of basketball and the best is yet to come...

Daron Jennings (Linglestown) - Daron had a great year for Linglestown as he played both 7th and 8th grade ball... He should play freshman ball this year because he can flat out compete.... He's a talented forward who can put the ball on the floor, pass and finish around the basket... Plays tough defense as well....

Julian Jackson (Swatara) - This kid was always known as a project... Not anymore... His game is getting better and better by the day.... At 6'3 and a long wing span, he changes shots and attacks the glass with tons of energy.... His upside is huge and he'll help CD East one day in a major way...

Jon Baker (Cumberland Valley) - Jon came out of nowhere and made a name for himself fast... He is a banger on the glass and has a very high IQ for the game of basketball.... He can score inside or outside and he's already 6'2... Very nice player...

 

Feb 19, 2012, The Dallas School District 7th grade girls finished 11-0, won the championship by 30 points, and outscored their opponents 347- 93 for the season.
