"what the game's been missing"
The Kingsbury Falcons have been flying below the radar this season but don’t think they aren’t making any noise!
Coach Jamie Rosser has a solid squad at Kingsbury Middle and it begins with his big time 8th Graders PJ Hillman and Caleb Jackson.
PJ Hillman IS THE MAN. He basically plays every single position for the Falcons and flat foot fills the stat sheet up. He hustles, he defends, he rebounds, he scores, HE DOES IT ALL. He’s a REAL big guard that is as strong and physical as they come.
His partner in crime will be MR. Caleb Jackson. In an era where pure PGs are few and far between, Caleb prides himself on being just that. He’s a pass first guard that can take his defender off the dribble and knock down the floater or bury the three pointer at a high percentage.
Behind the PJ-Caleb duo. The Falcons have a tough 7th grade class. Definitely one of the toughest in town.
Vava Sosa is easily the most lethal of the 7th graders. He's a high energy, pesky defender, that can make plays and knock down the big shot on the offensive end.
Marcus Pruitt is another solid contributor for the Falcons. He plays the three but his size allows him to stretch to four. He has very nice outside shot that will definitely come in handy against stiffer competition.
Alex Coleman will be a spark off the bench. He's a cat quick guard that handles the ball well and applies pressure on the defensive end.
Tookie Rogers is yet another 7th grader that can potentially be an asset for the Falcons. He's a high IQ point guard who can shoot it from long range at a high percentage.
But the Falcons run into the playoffs may solely rely on the progression of a huge 6’4 7th grade project by the name of DeMarcus who is probably the BIGGEST big in middle school. If Coach Rosser develops him into the beast he needs him to be there will be no stopping him or the Falcons.
Aside from their plethora of 7th graders, 6th grade guard Randy Rogers will get his share of varsity minutes and and will surely turn some heads.
Keep Kingsbury on your watch list as they have the potential to upset some of your favorite teams.
