FROM COACH COUSO
Erik Kinnebrew signs with Concordia University
Erik Kinnebrew, 6'7" guard who helped NOC/Map Elite win 2 National Tourneys, signed with Concordia Univ for a full ride last Wed. Erik was one of the hardest working players we have ever had in the program but his road to playing College basketball was at times trying due to injuries and growing 6 inches during his senior year at Saint Anthony's HS.
Here is what Erik posted" Words cannot describe how Thankful and honored I am for the path God destined for me and the blessings he has sent my way since birth. With that being said I am extremely proud to accept a full scholarship and announce my verbal commitment to Concordia University. I truly appreciate all of the support and guidance I have received from my coaches during this time especially from Coach Middlebrooks and Coach Couso. The fact that you guys continued to help me with my recruitment throughout the year even after my playing days for you were over is a true testament to who you both are as coaches and Role Models. And to my family who have been there since day 1 throughout the struggles of only playing one year of varsity basketball and coming out of high school with no one knowing who I was to be offered several full scholarships from coaches who I can't be anymore appreciative and humbled for recognizing my God given talent and potential. Nonetheless I couldn't be any more proud to become an Eagle and continue growing into the best Student-Athlete I can be." We here at NOC wish Erik the best and are so proud of the player and man he has become.

We will continue to move our program forward and one big reason is our relationship with the Map. We will now be known as NOC/ Team Map. Your membership on one of our High School club teams will also include the Monday night training and a monthly pass for the Map. Very exciting!!! God Bless you all and see you in September.
2012-13 was a banner year for NOC, so was 2013-2014
