Coaches, if you are looking for a kid that can help you win games then here she is. Amanda Carney is a rising senior, class of 2017, guard with college level shooting range and an extremely high basketball IQ. She has been a major contributor on her high school (Old Bridge High School) and AAU team (FBC Defenders) since freshman year! Her skill set enables her to control and impact games in a number of ways from scoring to creating to defending. Don’t take my word for it just check out the highlight video and them come to any Blue Chip Basketball college exposure event at Spooky Nook Sports in PA and see for yourself!
Kendrea Williams is one of the most gifted players in program history and her senior campaign at Piscatway High is her proof. After a season where she lead her team in scoring and closing out several games with dagger jumpers to snatch victory from several opponents. This kid began her post season collection of awards with selections to the all division, all county, and NJ State AllStar teams and county player of the year! Now she walks away with the two top awards for female athletes at her school. Coaches Senior Award and Best Female Senior Athlete 2016. Congratulations Kendrea and all the best at FDU!
Alliera McCoy will continue her academic and athletic career as a William Patterson Pioneer! A 3 year letter winner for the Piscaway Chiefs, McCoy help her team win big games at every level from Division to Conference to County Championships. Playing every position from two guard to power forward/center this kid brought a toughness and competitive spirit every night! Although undersized at the post position she consistently lead her team in rebounding behind the motto of “just get it done”. There is much to be excited about with McCoy as most who know and have coached her believe that as good as she has been so far, her best basketball lies ahead of her in college. Please join the FBC Defenders as we salute “Alliera McKoy”.
The Franklin Basketball Club (FBC Defenders) would like to thank all who participated and supported our “Defenders @Liberty Game” event! The day was filled with tons of fun filled activities as players and parents were treated to a highly competitive inter program scrimmage game on the garden floor! With Coaches Stone and Donza as the officials for the day, (yeah and they also served as #benchcoach, #towelboy, #waterboy, and concession stand vendor…smile), players were able to go onto the MSG NY Liberty court and play a game! As you can see from the smiles on their faces the players were treated to an experience that will last a lifetime. After the inter-program scrimmage, the players and their families ventured out into Manhattan for a few hours to see the sights and grab a delicious NYC style meal. Once the meal was done everyone met back at MSG in order to get the VIP access to the pre-game shoot-a-round. There they were able to sit court side and see the NY Liberty and LA Sparks players go through their pregame drills and warm-ups. They learned that many of the drills that the pro players were doing were the same as the ones they themselves are currently doing. Of course the coaching staff was quick to point out that the pro players have been doing these things since they was young girls. Message, you must commit yourself to the work if you want to be a great player someday. Finally, after the pre-game shoot-a-round the players and parents got to see a very exciting game that ended in an overtime victory for the LA Sparks and former NY Liberty/Rutgers University standout Essence Carson. Thanks again to everyone who helped to make this day possible for the program and its players.
FUN DAY WITH THE FBC DEFENDERS & NY LIBERTY!
