We had several big-time travel ball teams role through our events at Phenom Hoops but it also allowed other teams to really showcase and prove themselves against the best. One team that certainly showed that they belonged, showing that they have talent and is a program on the rise was the York County Legends.
They have taken home championships and competed against some of the top teams, coming away with some impressive wins. But it also showed that this is a team that has talent to be reckoned with. When you look at the makeup of the team, there are a few names that catch your eyes but overall, this is a team that plays unselfish basketball and loves to get everyone involved as each player understands their role.
Two guards that really captured eyes with their play were 2023 Grayson Kirk and 2023 Kanye Nelson, both of which put up some impressive numbers offensively and scored the ball incredibly well from multiple levels. 2023 point guard AJ Smith was also terrific in leading his team, making a mark on the defensive end while also being a leader on the floor. You also had 2023 Jordan Miller showcase his feeling and shot-making, as he looks to have a big upcoming season as well.
2023 Jayden Boyd is versatile that attracted some eyes as well with his play, using his 6’7 frame to his advantage, operating in several areas offensively, and being a presence on the defensive end. Boyd plays with a great motor and is active on both ends. But this is a team that has players step up all over the court and the York County Legends racked up some impressive wins, championships, and competed right with the big boys around the region. This is why they should earn more recognition for their success.
