Prystal Picks for August 20, 2017

The August Spotlight Showcase brought together more very talented players.  
I was at the event and watched then I spent a few days looking at the games on YOUtube to re-evaluate.  These are my evaluations.

The nice thing about the performances of all players is that their games are  preserved and presented on YOUtube for the evaluation of any coaches.

No other Shootout does this for the players.  .

What do people say:

Hi Bill!
Thanks so much for a wonderful event! Keagan had a fun time! Please pass along our thanks and appreciation to the coach. He was OUTSTANDING! Love that he took a genuine interest in the players, giving them tips to improve and make the most of the experience. His encouragement and enthusiasm was awesome too.  

Warm regards,
Robin

 
Hi coach, 
we had a great time down at the tournament! Stephanie  saw she got picked in the top 25 to attend  the cream of the crop game on Nov 5th. She will definitely  sign up for that! I don't think they have school  basketball yet  . Hope you are well.  Thanks again- steve
