Shafeek Is Taylor Made For All Star Classic

Shafeek Taylor put in serious work this AAU season. He started the year off with an impressive performance at the Elite 80 Expo where he helped his team take home the title. The wing forward for the Philly Peacemakers then tormented the competition at the Atlantic City Showcase and Mid Atlantic AAU Regional Championship while leading his squad to crowns in both events. Shafeek’s longtime coach Sabree Mathis is happy with Shafeek’s development and progress, “I love the fact that he can play all five positions on the floor and his willingness to do whatever it takes to help his team get the victory. His toughness is one of his greatest attributes” stated Mathis. This play has earned Taylor an invite to the Basketball Spotlight All Star Classic and makes him a Player Of The Year Candidate.

Taylor will be representing the South in the Basketball Spotlight All Star Classic powered by Converse. The event will be held August 15th at Life Center Academy in Burlington, NJ.
