My brother is childhood friends with Brook and he said that Gabe will be transferring to La Lumiere next year
it is hard to improve on those results, but still would have been better with him. Don't be surprised if he comes back to the Ville next year.Their average margin of victory was 18 points for the season. They won 23 of their final 24 games, losing only to D2 state champs SVSM in the 4th quarter. Beat #5 Elder & #3 Moeller, #1 Mentor (by 14 points) & #7 Westerville Central in their last four games to win the state championship....and finished at 26-3 & state champions.
But somehow "Elks would have been better with Njie"??? So you mean 29-0 and a margin of victory of 20+??? Isn't "better" kind of irrelevant at this point ??? Maybe just maybe the "intangibles" wouldn't have been as good. The chemistry. I don't know but as a casual observer I would say in the end it didn't matter.
La lumiere in Indiana is one of biggest prep schools in country. But it doesn’t make sense for him to leave nowLets talk for a moment about why you would purposely transfer from a HS D1 state championship team from a much respected sports state like Ohio, whose team returns virtually everyone and your Dad is the Coach... Hmmmmmmm, lets see???
1) Mom & Dad are getting divorced and Mom is moving ( Havn't heard this)
2) You weren't getting any playing time (uh...No)
3) You were on a Div. 6 invisible team from the middle-of-nowhere and getting "0" exposure and playing nobody (Uh...No again)
4) You have a chance to play & start for the defending Big school 6-time NATIONAL Champion for whom everyone starting goes straight to the NBA
Does such a Prep school exist? Would it be in Indiana, or more likely in Hollywood?
How about the potential downsides for such a transfer...
- You lose your much respected local identity, fan base, teammates & friends
- Your new school underachieves, while your old school goes on to win another state championship
- Your much loved Dad is no longer your Coach and you don't particularly care much for the new one.
- You don't fit in very well with your new teammates, have as many great friends & you fail to live up to expectations
Lets see...What would I do...Hmmm
"I'd stay at Centerville! Are you kidding me?
I dunno..... Prep schools play more games and all across the Country. They can also play for a National Title. He just won state so maybe that is the next step. Personally I am against all these Prep schools and hope they vanish but that is nothing more than a pipe dream.La lumiere in Indiana is one of biggest prep schools in country.

Because we KNOW there aren't many people, even professional coaches that think in stereotypes? You're probably not going to tell a whole board full of people that have heard the comments, one way or the other, that it's not an issue when viewing subjective performance. And the best way for someone victim of stereotypes? Get themselves on equal footing to prove their worth. I can think of one white pg in the MAC (BGSU). His coach is black, someone maybe used to looking past stereotypes? It's interesting enough to be discussion worthy, if a bit heated for this board.Wow, bringing race into it now, eh?
5’11” 145 Lbs maybe. He is staying in CentervilleAfter conquering Ohio, Cupps should play overseas for a year or two and then head to the NBA...I could see him and Lebron going at it for a ring here in the near future. Keep in mind that I have been accurate in every prediction so far before negating this post. Have a good weekend everyone!
I have also heard that from people close to the elks program that mike is comingJust heard Cupps recruited a 6'9 kid from Prolific Prep to Centerville... kid will also play AAU with his team ... seems like recruiting is a prerequisite for state champions, eh????
