D1 Ambassadors Attend Ivy League Camp

We've had great blue chip athletes over the years with the Texas D1 Ambassadors.  Our 90 plus D1 players are on every level from low to mid to high.  It's not our only focus though, as academic achievement is also highly valued.  I believe that if a person is disciplined in their social and academic life then it stands to reason that they'll be disciplined as an athlete and a leader. 

Three such players from our program attended Columbia University's Elite Camp this past week on the beautiful Ivy League campus located in New York City. They were 2012 PG Carter Josephs of San Antonio Clark, 2012 P 6'7" Shelby Lane of San Antonio Alamo Heights and 2013 P 6'8" Kendrick Morris of Houston St. Pius.  All three distinguished themselves.  They are very good basketball players, but even better people.

2012 Shelby Lane of San Antonio Alamo Heights was named the Top Rebounder at the Columbia Elite Camp.  Lane, a hard nosed guy who bangs down low will be a big part of Alamo Heights potentially deep run this coming season.
 2012 Carter Josephs of San Antonio Clark is blossoming at the lead guard position.  Thrust into a starting role late in the season when Clark had a couple of academic casalties Josephs took advantage and never relinquished his starting spot. He takes care of the ball to a fault and runs an offense efficiently.
 2013 P Kendrick Morris of Houston St. Pius is still a young pup, but he's not afraid to comepte against the best 17 year olds the circuit has to offer.
