2012 SEBA Atlanta All-Star Shootout Event Review
September 20, 2012
Annual SEBA Atlanta All-Star Shootout took
place this past Saturday on the campus of Oglethorpe University in
Atlanta. The event was a tremendous success as a full capacity
roster of 180 players from the Classes of 2013, 2014, and 2015
competed. The roster was comprised of college prospects from
throughout Georgia as well as from the states of Florida,
Tennessee, South Carolina, North Carolina, Alabama, and
Mississippi. The Camp provided excellent exposure to the
participants, as over fifty-three (53) College Coaches were in
attendance to evaluate the prospects. Several Regional scouting
publications were also on hand to cover the event.
The Shootout presented a complete day of basketball action. The
morning session had the players participating in fundamental
skills stations conducted by an excellent staff of top high
school, travel ball, and college coaches. Following the morning
stations, the players were treated to a powerful guest speech by
Courtney Brooks. Coach Brooks, who led Southwest Atlanta Christian
(SACA) to State Titles in 2004 and 2006 and is now coaching at
Banneker High, spoke to the campers on the topics of character and
faith. The speech was highly inspirational and relevant to the
young men in attendance. Next, the players competed in three full-court
scrimmage games with their respective
throughout the afternoon and early evening. The event concluded
