Peter Mauro

The 6th Grade Division of the MDC had some good talent. Here’s a look at our top performers part 1. 

Basketball Spotlight MDC 6th Grade Top Performers Part 1 

Peter Mauro Guard (NJ Bulldogs)- Mauro is focused and a certified killer when he’s on the floor. He showed dominance all weekend especially in the scoring column. He can finish in transition or hit the jumper when you step off him on defense. He also had a shot of winning Mr. Memorial Day. He finished the championship game with 20 markers and 24 points in the semifinals.

Andrew Wishicwski Guard (NJ Bulldogs)- When the defense concentrated on Harris and Mauro, Andrew broke their back with deep treys. He connected on four trifecta’s on his way to 15 points in their championship win. He knows how to stretch the defense.
Alex Grospe Guard (NJ Bulldogs)- Grospe can also stroke the rock from the outside. He will also get into the gaps of the defense and make a play. I’ve seen his confidence grow through the many Spotlight events.
Luke Schorr Guard (KSK)- Schorr loves Spotlight events and shining on the stage. The MDC championship game was no exception as he drilled four treys and finished with 20 points in their loss. I also love his play making ability as he creates for others. We can’t wait to see him at the Future Phenom Camp.
Richard Rosa Guard (KSK)- Few guards on this level know how to take control of the game but Rosa loves having the joy stick. Whether he was diming teammates or making a bucket himself Rosa stood out as usual. He has been on a hot streak this entire circuit after making his name known at the Future Phenom Camp last summer. He scored 15 points in the championship game loss.
Mekhi Ragland Forward (KSK)- This youngster is definitely still developing but I like some of things I see in him for the future. He has soft hands and a good touch. He needs to become a little more mobile especially on the defensive end but that should come with maturity.
Tajee Carter Guard (KSK)- Carter showed some explosiveness when driving the lane in half court and in transition. He has a scorer’s mentality and fills the lane well. His strong frame also helps out on defense as he is able to bully ball handlers.
