Announcing The First Annual Coaches vs. Violence Classic

2 Dec

In the spirit of Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, The Prep Ball Report is honored to announce, in collaboration with Detroit Westside Christian Head Coach Greg Boler, the First Annual Coaches vs. Violence Classic, held on Saturday, January 24th at Southfield Bradford High School.

From established state powers, to up and coming programs, the Coaches vs. Violence Classic hopes to promote the messages of Dr. King in a positive, family friendly, athletic environment.

Game one features the upstart Taylor Prep Tigers, in their first year of varsity competition, against fellow charter up and coming Detroit Public Safety Academy, tip-off is set four 2:00 PM.

The second game on the day is a PSL vs. charter school tilt, with the Colts of Detroit Northwestern, led by 6’1″ junior guard Terrance Sewell and 6’2″ backcourt mate Ketquan Gatewood, taking on Southfield Bradford.  Bradford, under the guidance of first year head coach Ra Murray, will look to build off a 19 win campaign a year ago.  Tip-off is slated for 4:00 PM.

In the third game of the day, the defending Class C state champions Consortium Cougars, now in Class B, square off against the Falcons of Farmington High School.  Consortium is led by junior 6’0″ scoring machine Luster Johnson, and 6’6″ paint punisher Mykel Tyson.  Tip-off is scheduled for 6:00 PM.

The nightcap on the day will pit another PSL vs. charter contest, as Detroit Allen Academy, one of the favorites to capture Class C and winners of 20 games a season ago, play the rising Communication Media Arts Phoenix from the Public School League.  The Phoenix only lose four players from a season ago, while Wildcats return junior division one recruits Jason Williams, and Danny Pippen, to go along with sophomore Drequan Bell.
