Fulton County 12-Under Youth Boys Basketball Team Brings Homes the Second Place Title in the Georgia Recreation and Parks Association’s 2014 State Youth Basketball Tournament | Print |

“Separations are in the preparation,” said Frankie Smith one of the Basketball Coaches at South Fulton’s Burdette Park.   Smith explains that means all of the hard work that the young men have put into the program from December of last year till March 2014 has paid off.  

The Burdette Park 12-Under Youth Basketball Team took their opponents to the hoop all season long earning their team a spot in the Georgia Recreation and Parks Association State Basketball Championship game.

After several quarters of hustling, quick passes and strategic play execution, the boys lost by a little more than eight points and brought home the second place trophy.   Smith said the game was in no way a loss for the boys because only winners can advance to the championship game.   He credits the boys and the volunteer coaches for their hard work, dedication and time to ensure the boys are fundamentally sound players.    

The players on the team are:

•  Lance Wemdell Bottoms
•  Jonathan Asher Geer
•  Zachary Charles
•  Javan Hall
•  Gavin Nicholas Long  
•  Cathedral Darryl Robinson
•  Loneral Dae’Shawn Robinson
•  Amir Shahiid Spivey
•  Caden Clifford-Pete Tukes
•  Jacorrei Zsavel Turner
