4th Grade NYC CHOZ
As things quickly heat up, we bring you the upcoming 4th & 5th grade players from NY 2 LA. Remember, top player doesn't necessarily mean high in the rankings. It signifies a player on top of his game. Interestingly enough this level is extremely competitive. I applaud the parents, coaches and guardians for their sacrifices. In return the boys play their hearts out, knowing school is priority. Let's push them to the extent success is inevitable.
In 2006, early basketball exposure for kids was considered taboo. Today its "not a bad thing" to do, regardless of age. We've come a long way, keep up the good fight. The youngsters deserve recognition for aspiring to be relevant. Look out for the next Middle School Jr Elite write up.
Coach Wee from Gauchos snatched up Clark to be his point guard. I watched Clark at a tournament and he has "A Game." He dribbles with his head up and makes decent decisions in transition. On fast breaks he had some good looks, but made a few turnovers in the passing lane. In half court Clark fed his big man, as if he's used to playing with tall players. Clark impressed us the most with his defense, he seem to always end up with the ball after a trap.
