What is this kids name? I have heard a lot about him.
He is actually in TVS school district and open enrolls to PS. The reason he redid 6th grade at TVS was because he didn’t want to repeat the same curriculum at PS two years. Shawnee had no issue with his parents holding him back-and it was done for more reasons than sports, that was simply an added benefit for him. He was the very youngest in the 2023 class and maturity was a big issue-now he’s an older one in the 2024. Don’t be so quick to assume it was done only for sports.I talk with a lot of Preble Shawnee people so I have a lot of insight on him. I've also seen him play multiple times, and the kid is very good. A little backstory on him, he was strategically held back for sports, and I really applaud Preble Shawnee, because they were not going to let his family do that. It was his 6th grade year, and the family moved the kid to TVS for a year, had him redo 6th grade, and then went back to Preble Shawnee for 7th grade. It's pretty crazy if you ask me... anyways, he's already 6'2/6'3 and has the skills of a point guard. He's just a good scorer overall. I watched him play in the Varsity summer league a couple years back as Preble Shawnee coaches were playing him with their Varsity team as a 7th grader. He was actually scoring points and looked as if he could fit right in already. I'm not sure the kid has ever lost a game at any level. Not only that but his supporting cast is pretty good. Preble Shawnee is about to be very good in the next 2-3 years.
