Stars in the Making

The TN Report recently partnered up with We Work Hoops to bring together one of the best individual exposure events that the state of Tennessee has ever seen. The Best of the Best featured over 70 middle school participants and over 90 high school participants, roughly 170 athletes in total. The event was held at Middle Tennessee Christian School in Murfreesboro, TN.

The Best of the Best was focused towards basketball skill development, mental development, and understanding game-like scenarios. The invite only camp was led by an elite group of skill development trainers in Christian Simmons, Jamal Richardson, Desmond Cambridge, Shaun Sanford, and Dev Haralson.

The Best of the Best featured some of the top players from across Tennessee and around the southeast. This article will highlight some players who participated in the Best of the Best Showcase and are "Stars in the Making".
