4TH ANNUAL SWEET 16
BROUGHT TO YOU BY: TOP DAWGS YOUTH BASKETBALL TRAINING
WITH COACH ZEKE THOMAS
TOURNAMENT DIRECTOR RECAP BY ZEKE THOMAS
I would like to thank every student athlete, coach, program director, parent, fan, spectator, staff member and volunteer that participated and competed in the 4th Annual Sweet 16 AAU Classic. Without your support and trust youth basketball events are not allowed to grow as this event has over the past 4 years. I would like to give a special thanks to the residents and programs of Calhoun County for being very hospitable over the last 3 years. Especially Coach Rosier, Brent Watkins, Greg Bowlin and Milton Barnes. Greg Patterson, Tink Sherman and Aaryn WIlson of NBL Basketball thanks for trusting and encouraging the process that is starting to come to light. You guys are doing a tremendous job in your community. Defiantly couldn't have hosted this year tournament with out the loyalty and help of True Top Dawgs Members for life, Jerry Brackett, Derrick Bowes and Darrion Bowes.
Over the past 4 years i had a vision of youth basketball i wanted to share with the Midwest. After completion if this event we are taking great strides in the right direction. Last 3 years our event only averaged about 43 teams which is not bad. 2019 we had 58 total teams with having a team or two drop the day before with a few teams n the waiting list. I am grateful for the numbers of teams and the locations they traveled but I am on a mission from here on out to bring more teams from different locations, to host more elite programs, better rewards, more media exposure and coverage, better organization, improvement with rules and officiating. Even though i feel the event went well i'm not satisfied until i can bring you the best youth basketball event product within my power and control. Thanks again and congratulations to all the student athlete and coaches that competed and was able to take some hardware home.
