Then they play in the D2 tournament. The only schools who have the advantage Dunbar has is the GCL South, and if you notice, they never play them. Also, other than Norris Cole what Dunbar player has lived up to his potential at the next level. Don't say Cooke. Didn't start at OSU and now is out of the League. Nor is he playing in Europe. I do agree that he was an incredible high school talent.
Dude please spare us your bitterness. Dunbar does not get the best 8th graders every year did you see TM had the stronger senior class the last two seasons? We dont raid Catholic grade schools, kids wanna win so they go where they can realize winning. For the record GCL South schools avoid city schools namely Dayton Dunbar didnt you see what Trotwood did to Moe in the tourney? Cook was in Germany last year dude after six seasons in the league do you call that a bust? Aaron Pogue, Josh Benson, Geron Johnson, Ryan Bass, Deon Stewart all graduated or set to graduate. Andre Yates, Damerion Geter, Gary Akbar, Teddy Hawkins all currently enrolled. Did I mention Jordan Smith headed to a D2 school West Virgina State and Willie Green to Stillman College? So how is Dunbar players not living up to there potential at the next level?
