Team analysis: Guided by relentless focus on the youth of the community, HAA Elite provides a program which prides itself on teaching not only the skills needed for basketball, sportsmanship, physical activity, but most importantly, character development. Over the past couple of years, HAA Elite developed numerous high level players. The trend will continue this year. Raekwon Drake is a 6’5 guard that holds numerous division one offers. Ja’Dyn Brown is a 6’3 combo guard that is also poised to make a lot of noise on the HGSL. HAA Elite does a great job not only preparing their players for the challenges they may face on the court, but for anything they may face in life. They breed high character guys. “Our program supplies the opportunity for young student athletes to develop everlasting friendships and relationships,” said coach Stacey Moragne, “but also the opportunity to continue to reach and surpass their basketball aspirations.”
