Phenom Open Gym: Concord Academy

Veteran Guard Play 2025 6’2 Jake Benham and 2025 6’1 Gray Madeira have played well together this summer and that trend should only continue this upcoming season. Benham and Madeira both are vocal leaders and have shown that they can be threats from the perimeter but also move well without the ball and make plays off the dribble.

Sean’s Standouts: Phenom Grassroots TOC Day 2

2024 6’3 (NC Spartans 16U Graves) John CampbellJohn Campbell was a name I was told to watch for entering this weekend. Campbell is a lengthy, silky guard who gets after it on both ends.
