Basketball Spotlight Feature: New York State Of Mind

Paul Person (Milbank)

Milbank’s Athletic Director/ Coach Roosevelt Byers has seen many point guards come through the New York basketball scene but feels Paul Person could be among the best.”Right now I think he’s NY best kept secret. I love his demeanor on the floor and how he understands how to play both guard spots. He has a winning attitude and the will to go with it” said Byers. Person displayed this winning attitude during the Tip Off Classic while leading his team to a 13U championship appearance.

Byers also feels joining the Milbank organization was a great move for Person. “Paul has improved in the classroom and on the floor. He now has an 89 average and takes full advantage of our study hall program. On the basketball court he’s learning when to use his midrange game and becoming more vocal. I think these improvements will make him one of the hottest prospects entering 9th Grade in two years” he finished.

Milbank finished runner up at the Tip Off Classic but will be looking for Person and company to win the Clash For The Cup. Basketball Spotlight will keep you updated on their progress.
