16 years ago I started a concept and a dream to help the players and coaches in Tennessee get noticed on a national level. I wanted to bring attention to the state and make college coaches aware of the talent between our borders. I have worked tirelessly and selflessly to create my name and reputation among the college coaches at every level of the game. 16 years ago we had 10 D1 signees in the state, between the website and the subscription service have become familiar names among the coaching community we have averaged between 25 and 30 per year. My goal is to get the names out and in front of the college coaches, its as simple as that. We have many exciting venues to feature the talent in the state including the annual Best in State tournament, the Knoxville and Nashville Fall Leagues, Unsigned senior events and the big showcase at Carson Newman in the fall. We hope you like our upgrade and will continue to help us strive to get these players noticed and ready for the next level. 

Happy Hoops
