MoCo Warriors 2020 went to the NTBA Nationals July 7-11, 2018 in Myrtle Beach, SC as the only 10th Grade team from Montgomery County, and amazed everyone. We went with 7 (Jaylen, Maximus, Desmond, Chris, Shamar, Isaiah and Samaj) along with two coaches (Coach Kerwin and Coach Bill). We went with all intention to play in the Silver Division of Nationals, but the boys did so well in Pool play, finishing 2nd Place (2-1), that the boys took the bid into the Gold Division. The boys were defeated in the 2nd round of the Gold Division. But they played amazingly throughout the tournament.

Champions of ZG's 76ERS FIELDHOUSE FINALE Tournament
Congratulations MoCo Warriors (4-0) on doing what seemed impossible. Only 5 players played this weekend in Zero Gravity's 76ERS FIELDHOUSE FINALE Tournament in Delaware. Odds were against them, the referees didn't think they would last out, much less dominate the floor the way they did. And without any hesitation they hit the floor running in every game. To finish pool play in 1st place then to go on and win the Championship. Coach Kerwin Stephens, was honored to coach Samaj Smith, Jaylen Stephens, Chris Mills, Robert Mozie and Antonio Brown, The Boys were amazing and running on all cylinders. The completed the tournament by taking the championship by over 20. The boys ran the entire game without loosing stride or missing a beat. All areas of the game were on point. 5 boys acting as one makes success.
We were able to visit Bethel A.M.E. Wilmington Delaware service while we were in town on Sunday morning before our championship game. The service was in a H.S. due to their Church being unavailable. The boys seem to have also taken something out of it. I'd like to thank the members of the church for being so open to us.

MoCo Warriors 2020 - 7th out of 34 in Zero Gravity Nationals
Congratulations MoCo Warriors 2020 (9th Grade) pull off what all think wasn't going to be done. This past weekend they played in Zero Gravity's National and completed their division in 7th place out of 34 teams which represented 13 states. The team was coached by Coach Kerwin and lead by their captain, Shamar (#1) with Ricky (#7), Jaylen (#11), Samaj (#13), Phillip (#18), Kyler (#20), & Malik (#22).
What is more remarkable, is that they completed pool play in 1st place with only 7 players. They were a defensive machine. Offensively they were all over the other teams dropping threes from every part of the court and attacking the basket incredibly.
Unfortunately only 6 players as they started their Championship run. They left it all on the floor, and it did pay off. Great job boys!
Special thanks to Rick Lane, Barbara Ortiz, and Kershon Stephens for taking their time out to drive up, support and assist in making sure the players were mentally, physically, emotionally, and nutritionally ready all weekend.

This is the firs time I have ever had to say this but we lost to Team Fire Elite, a team that we defeated the day before and because of that they brought multiple extra players who seemed to be above the age of the division who made no difference in the game until they started to play dirty (hitting, punching, pulling, taunting, kicking..etc...). This was not caught by the Slam City referee, because unfortunately they only had one referee handling a championship game who was unable to catch them in their poor sportsmanship and clearly violent type of play. I am proud of my players because they never stopped down to their type of playing, they just continued to push on. Congratulations on the Runner-Up position and excellent job on maintaining your exposure and staying disciplined in your game.
