In The Spotlight: Damon Harge (Showtime All Stars)

Name: Damon Harge 
AAU Team: Showtime All Stars 
Position: Point Guard 
Class: 2018 
Event: Hoop Group Fall Jam Fest 
Analysis: Harge arrive in New Jersey with a lot of national hype. During his first game the 7th Graders showed dominance against a low level 15U squad. The real test was in their second contest versus an aggressive PYO squad. The Philly boys tried to rattle the youngster but he played like he was accustomed to the environment. He showed some quickness handling the pill and enough strength to fight through the traps. He showed range on his shot even though most of his shots rimmed in and out. Damon’s talent and feel for the game with very apparent and I didn’t see a guard during my time in Hampton (6th Grade AAU Nationals) that could match him right now.
