Dawkins’ Standouts from Phenom G3 Showcase (Day 3)

Player Standouts: Day 2 (Afternoon) Phenom G3 Showcase

By: Nicholas Chapman 2025 Sadiq White (15u Team United) A team that a lot of people were excited to watch today was Team United’s 15u squad. And one of the players that created a lot of that hype is 6’6” forward Sadiq White. He is insanely athletic, making highlight plays every time he touches the ball.

POB’s Eye Catchers: Phenom Grassroots TOC (Day 2, Part 2)

2023 Parker Hodgson (Dream Big Elite): Hodgson continues to be the go-to leader for Dream Big Elite, a team that has some intriguing talent to watch.  Hodgson though was able to show that he can knock down shots but did a terrific job in putting the pressure on the defense and getting to the line as well in his team’s win today.  Smooth operating prospect that knows how to score. 2025...

Amongst this star-studded roster lies a player that I personally believe could...
