POB’s Eye Catchers from Phenom Team Camp (Day 1, Part 2)

2024 Carlos Vazquez (Wayne Country Day): Every time I watch this young man’s game, I can just see a program finding ways to get him on the floor and for him to make plays in so many ways.  At 6’5, he shows a little bit of everything, with his ability to impact the paint and attack the glass, create off the dribble for himself and score, operate and play multiple positions, etc.  Really...

Dawkins’ Dimes: Phenom Challenge Part 1

By: DeAjai Dawkins 6’3 2022 Joseph Thompson (Raising Young Men/South Central High School)  Joseph has been amongst the more impressive players I’ve seen this weekend.
