    It is an exciting time for many of our local teams who have put their hard work to the test by competing against rivals from previous years and interacting with youths from different parts of the

    country. Some tournaments are held in large cities and some are played in small towns with nobands or cheerleaders. Weekend travel to basketball tournaments can also be very expensive, with one family spending an overwhelming amount in travel expenses.

Furthermore, the reward of watching each team progress and improve their level of play is worthy of any expense accumulated.

    Many of the elite players in the state of Oklahoma assembled at Rogers High School in Tulsa Oklahoma on September 26; it was one of the better selections of talent from Oklahoma at the same time displayingtheir talent in a long time. The Elite 50 camp is designed to evaluate the top players in the state of Oklahomaand give them the opportunity to compete against each otheand give them the opportunity to compete against each other. Furthermore the participants will be evaluatedby Gym Time Hoops Scouting Report (GTHSR) and Oklahoma Hoop Boys. Many of the players have never met one another, so it gave them a great opportunity to make new lifelong friends and develop new chatterfor the hallways in school.

    There was no short of talent in the gym, the young men simply got after it. The session began with skills and drills and the young men transitioned to full court scrimmages. On the court Dominique Rainey of Putnam City demonstrated his high wire act and skill level. Rainey is clearly a high D1 prospect. Quawan Carter (Club team HWPO) of Union High School, Ed Winslow (Club team Gym(Club team HWPO) of Union High School, Ed Winslow (Club team Gym Time Hoops) of Memorial Highschool made some noise at the camp with their spectacular play.

    Dr. Roy Pinder talks to the campers about decision making and goal setting

    Clyde Hill (Club Team Tulsa) of Tulsa Edison, Mahlon Jones (Club team Oklahoma Orange Ball) of Edmond Sante Fe, along with Ed Daniels (Club team Tulsa Buldogs) of Tulsa Central were the premiere point guards at the Elite 50 camp. Other notable players were Jake Toupal (Club team BA Blaze) of Broken Arrow High school, Oren Faulk (Club Team Tulsa Bulldogs), and Trai Jordan (Club team Oklahoma Magic) of Southeast dazzled his peers with his spectacular dunks in traffic.

    There were some players who came in under the radar and left with a sound level of respect from their peers. Sean Young 610 (Club team Oklahoma Magic) sophomore from Bixby showed that he can get upand down the floor well. Alex Miller demonstrated he can shoot the ball with the best of them. Brandon Brantley (Club team Gym Time Hoops) of BTW showed he is a point guard of the future with his soundplay and good decision making.
