The Hollis All-Stars won the classic bracket in Cocoa Beach, Florida with only six players."The victory was important because I've been trying to get this 5th grade team together for almost two years with no financial support," said coach Donald Francois. "A lot of parents didn't believe in me."
Coach Francois mission is to better player's lives through better education. He says, "I consistently monitor their report cards and always preach that basketball means nothing without good grades." All he wants is for them to graduate college.
Middle School Elite congratulates Coach Francois and the youngsters: Josh Serrano, Matt Asenjo, Isaiah Mucius, Bryce Barneys, Loseni Kamara and Korey Lee. We also acknowledge assistant coaches Eric Ajeko and Matt Munvo.
