Trae Benham

2021 6’3 Trae Benham (Concord First Assembly): What can one say, the junior guard was feeling himself today from three, knocking down seven 3-pointers with ease and with rhythm.  When the defense did get out on him, his ability to put the ball on the deck and attack strong and finish were impressive as well.  His range though was the story of the game for Concord First Assembly.

2022 6’3 Kheni Briggs (AL Brown): Every time we get to watch Briggs, he impresses us with his capabilities on the floor.  A 6’3 guard but impacts the game in so many ways, Briggs’ blend of speed, athleticism, size/strength, and scoring impact on all levels is impressive.  And, he continues to improve as a prospect each and every day. 

2020 6’8 Cheick Traore (Concord First Assembly): There is something about the presence of Traore down low for the Eagles.  Yes, he can make an impact scoring but where he can really shine as well is on the defensive end, blocking shots, showing great timing, and when he gets his hands on the ball, there aren’t too many that will take it away from him. Love his attitude and leadership on the floor.

Jackson Threadgill

2020 6’5 Jackson Threadgill (Davidson Day): Threadgill is a gifted player that understands the game and his capabilities.  But that doesn’t mean he hasn’t continued to work on his overall development.  He can be a knockdown shooter, but is continuing work to take defenders off the dribble and bring a little explosiveness to the table is intriguing and should be fun to watch at the next level.

2022 6’3 Jaden Bradley (Cannon): Nothing seems to surprise us anymore with what Bradley does and that is a good thing.  He makes everything look so effortless on the floor with such a unique blend of size, vision, IQ, and scoring capability; at times it just seems like the game slows down in every way.  His feel on the court is simply big-time.

2022 6’6 DJ Nix (Cannon): It was a tough start for Nix but you have to give the sophomore credit, he never put his head down and continued to battle.  Nix’s continuing growth in his overall game and ability to play so many positions should excite college coaches, as he truly looks comfortable from the perimeter.  Showing that he can step in and knockdown from the perimeter but also use his size and versatility to play physical ball.

2020 5’11 Adam Brazil (Davidson Day): One has to give credit to this senior 5’11 guard for how he handles pressure and leads his team at the point guard position.  Not only does he show up his footwork/quickness in the open floor, but he has that shiftiness that has defenders guessing at times.  Makes big-time plays when called upon and ways to get his shot up, as well as defends pretty well.
