Hoop Group Skills Camp welcomed National Championship-winning and High School Coach of the Year Kevin Boyle of Montverde High School. Coach Boyle worked with campers over the weekend, teaching them what it takes to be a top-level point guard. In what was a great experience for all involved, we saw some campers shine this weekend. Here are our top 10 from this weekend:

Standout Performers from PG Weekend

Jalen Rucker | Baltimore | 2019

Rucker, Jaylen

Unselfish play on both ends of the floor helped this rising eighth grader standout this weekend. Displaying excellent court vision and strong on-the-ball defense earned Rucker a spot on this list and the Most Improved Player Award in the high school division as a rising 8th grader

 

Melquan Kirton | East Stroudsburg North (PA) | 2015

Kirtoa, Melquan

Was a vocal leader who exhibited a tremendous work-ethic all through camp. His defensive play and his ability to aggressive drive the lane helped Kirota turn heads this past weekend.

 

Andre Jackson |East Stroudsburg South (PA) | 2015

Jackson, Andre

Another Pocono-area product who made the most of his time at camp, Jackson was dangerous when attacking the rim and kept defenders on their toes with a knack for knocking down the pull-up jumper. His high motor on the court also allowed him to finish strong in the transition game.

 

Kobe Gantz  | McCaskey (PA) High School | 2016

Gantz, Kobe

A great all-around athlete, Gantz controlled the pace of his team’s games and was always able to find the open man. While his passing was top notch, he was also able to stretch the floor with the wide-range of his jump shot.

LeDetrius Sibley | Lancaster (PA) | 2015

Sibley, LaDetrius

A very good rebounder for a guard, his size and strength make him a talent at the point position. He was not afraid to go to the rim and was the driving force who pushed his team in the transition game.  Congratulations to LeDetrius for capturing the NBA Most Valuable Player Award.

Trey English | Baltimore | 2021

English, Trey

One of the top sixth graders at camp, English was very coachable and was able to see the floor well for a player his age. He also showed great discipline with his shot selection.

 

Knasir “Doug” McDaniel | Silver Hill (MD) | 2021

McDaniel, Doug

The ultra-competitive McDaniel seemed to score at will as he easily broke down defenses and split double-teams. His aggressive style of play and his confidence of what he can do on the court clearly give him a high ceiling at this stage. Not many were surprised that he walked away with the MVP.

 

Jackson Blaufeld | Pittsburgh | 2019

Blaufield, Jackson

Was tough to stop in the open court and the way he pushed the ball in transition and grabbed rebounds on both the offensive and defensive end help to make him a dangerous player.

 

Kameran Rodriquez | Manhattan (NY) | 2022

Rodriguez, Kameran

The youngest player on the list, he rarely made the wrong play with or without the ball earning him the Floor General Award. Great at penetrating the lane and finishing, he also possessed the most important feature of a point guard, the ability to make his teammates better. With the way he carried himself on and off the court, he has the makings of a complete point player.

 

Bryce Lindsay | Baltimore (MD) | 2021

Lindsay, Bryce

His aggressive style of play allows Lindsay to consistently find the open gaps to the rim, and he is strong at finishing when he gets there. His ball-handling skills make him a tough player to defend and his team-first attitude is clearly a strong attribute.

Honorablele Mention: Lafayette Williams , Daryl Barbour, Zach Rocco, Beau Everett, Ian Di Pierto, Dwayne Williams, Jaden Johnson, Chris Winborne, Hasson Massenberg, Doug Niblock,

One highlight that we took away from camp this weekend was the large amount of youth among the campers. We love seeing younger players get out there in the summertime and work on their game. If that player is you, you may be interested in our Jr. Elite weekend in the Poconos. Get yourself ready for next season!

With weekend one of Kevin Boyle PG camp officially done with, we would like to send a special thank you out to all who was involved. This weekend would not have been made possible without Coach Boyle and campers who were willing and eager to get better. Coach Boyle will be back in the Poconos July 11-13 for his second week of camp. We hope to see you there!
