Team Delaware Is Stacked With Talent!
One Of the impressive 5th Grade teams in the region has Team Delaware. These youngsters made their way to the AC Showcase and the won the Blue Division title. Before they get ready for the Memorial Day Classic we wanted to introduce a few of their players.
Team Delaware 5th Grade Standouts
Su-Meer Alleyne (Forward)- One of the most talented players in their age group at the AC Showcase. He brings skill, size and effectiveness on this level. He can play and defend multiple positions and looks to have a tremendous upside. I look forward to seeing more of him in the future.
Mekhi Caldwell (Guard)- This poised point guard runs the dhow like a true general. He directs traffic and seems to see the floor very well. If you make a mistake and leave him open he’s capable of training the outside shot. Every team needs a player like Caldwell.
Ahmad Foster (Forward)- Foster had a huge game versus the NJ Shore Shots where he dominated the boards. He also came up big on the charity stripe by knocking down the free throws to seal the victory.
Robert Wright (Guard)- Wright is tough as nails and will attack the lane at all times. He has a mean floater and knows how to finish in traffic while absorbing contact. He’s a good backcourt mate for Caldwell.
Kareem Thomas (Guard)- One of the quickest players around. He loves to play defense 94 feet while causing turnovers. He also showed he could finish off plays in traffic when running the floor. He’s definitely a change of pace player.
Amir Williams (Forward)- Williams got injured but also made noise this weekend. He has developing footwork, runs the floor like a deer and is a problem on the blocks defensively. I really like this kids upside.
