Hey Dickie V!
To be honest I don't have a lot of coverage over the guys outside my own club, former players of mine or athletes we don't have as "featured athletes" on our site.
Bar Uche who went to High School to continue his journey, for a variety of reasons including getting more exposure. So he didn't need my assistance (albeit we have done a few little projects together and I do have a good relationship with the coach at his school).
You could assume some of the reasons Uche left, by the way, were that we traditionally have not supported kids very well in that space here in SA and due to a lack of athletes of that calibre in years gone by overall, there was not really much of spotlight on SA talent.
The featured athletes and Uche happen to be all the division 1 college men from South Australia. They are not able to play here in the offseason and I doubt their schools would want to them to play locally here either. They are all in their fresman or sophomore seasons right now.
Here is what I do know that I can share here. The ones who MIGHT be eligible to play locally and MAYBE willing to:
Harry Reesmt - Juco - finished his 2 yrs - Sturt junior
Jack Turnbull - NAIA - finished his 4 yrs - Sturt junior
Jordan Heading - Provisional D1 NCAA - completed 4 yrs - Sturt junior
Ryan Girardi - Juco - should be able to play - Norwood Junior
Ben Janssen - D2 - should be able to play - Norwood Junior
Koen Sapwell - D2 - should be able to play - Centrals junior
Ray Harding - Juco - should be able to play in the offseason - North junior
I am mostly not sure what these 7 guys plan to do in offseason.
Anon; thanks for your post regarding my volunteer work/hobby. I'm not too sure what you are referring to. I jokingly tell the kids and families I work with when they ask how much they should pay is I work for "free tickets" and "free merch" so I can proudly watch them play and so that myself, my family and friends can proudly rep them and their schools around town. Nothing better basketball-wise than sitting in the gym, front row seeing a former player dominate vs Team USA at world championships, or drop player drop 20 down in LA live in an 8,000 seat gym.
Happy for you to post here or hear directly any concerns you have of substance. Just hit me up with details and I will gladly have a conversation :)
