To say the 2nd Annual Recruit757 Boys Basketball Showcase was a success is a complete understatement. The event featured great talent from all across the Hampton Roads area. Former University of Maryland standout John Gilchrist, who served as the event’s guest speaker, spoke to all in attendance about the reality of where basketball might not take some. Gilchrist also spoke on the discipline it takes to make basketball student-athletes most primary focus and having the discipline to make adult decisions when the time presents.
Landstown boys basketball coach Dwight Robinson, who directed last year’s inaugural event, was among the many high school coaches in attendance. Special thanks to the Virginia National Guard for their continued support. Here’s a look at some of the event’s top performers!
