The Memphis War Eagles have been a National AAU Power for years. Their class of 2016 group won the AAU Nationals in 2008. Kevin “Lucky” Cheatham was the quarterback of that and still runs the show to this day. We got a chance to watch Lucky rock at the 12U AAU Nationals this year and here’s our One On One.
