    Any one know who the HS teams playing are?

  3. Laxn says:

    Will be interesting to see how this goes. Seems like an interesting concept. Didn’t even know college players could play in tournaments like this in season.

  4. Bear Facts says:

    Um. I heard that a few teams don’t have enough players?

    How did it go today?

    Team Tune Squad rolled through the HS Varsity Division at the Gobbler Games. This was a really fun day for the boys and I wish more kids had played. More like a street ball, pick-up game than anything else. Really fast and high scoring.

    Here is the Squad:

    G Eddie Gilman – Hen Hud/Governor’s/UNC
    D Trevor Koelsch – Ytown/Hopkins
    D Mike Skluth – John Jay/Albany
    LSM/D Joe Fraietta – Hen Hud/Stony Brook
    M Alex Corpolongo – Somers/Stony Brook
    M Matt Ledwin – Hen Hud/Hopkins
    M Brian Prestreau – Ytown/Stony Brook
    A Nick Mariano – Ytown/UMass
    A Kevin McDermott – Hen Hud/Salisbury

    Thank you to the Bocklet family for organizing this really enjoyable event.

    Cold weather and not a lot of players but those who played seemed to enjoy it.

    maybe more teams would have played if more high school teams got together and played. The team above represents 4 top high schools not sure why the got this team together instead of fielding 4 school teams.

    • Mel says:

      Maybe these kids are friends and decided to put their own team together. No schools, coaches or parents. Just some kids putting together their own team and having fun. Isn’t that the best way?

  10. Arnold says:

    I thought it was a great concept and the kids who played had fun. Agree that more HS teams should have played. I believe I might only have seen 3 or 4 legit high school squads. Hen Hud Tune Squad but only had 2-3 hen hud players? They def. all got some skill. Only other team that I saw stood out was a team from Dutchess. Reminded me of park pick up Bball games back in the day. Again, Great Concept! Look forward to watching next year.
