HBCU Elite 100 Basketball Camp Atlanta


HBCU Elite 100 Basketball Camp Atlanta

This past week in Atlanta, history was made as the first ever HBCU ELITE 100 prospect camp took place on Sunday at the International Sports Academy.

The camp featured over 100+ ELITE high school players from across nine different states (GA, SC, NC, MI, TN, FL, AL, OH, WV). Players had the opportunity to showcase and learn from some of the best coaches and trainers in the country in front of HBCU programs and coaches. They also had the privilege to learn the “Art of Shooting” from our special guest and one of the most sought after NBA shooting coaches, Chris Matthews AKA Lethal Shooter.

We had the privilege of having HBCU coaches in attendance while several more viewed the camp live stream via SUVtv.

The HBCU ELITE 100 Prospect camp provided 100 male basketball players (juniors, seniors, 11th, unsigned seniors and post grads), with a structured basketball learning experience that emphasizes fundamental skill development and recruiting exposure.

The goal is for this camp to revolutionize exposure for high school prospects across the country who aspire to play college basketball at a Division I, II, JUCO, NAIA or HBCU level.

The program will activate in major U.S. markets to include Atlanta, NYC, Dallas, Indiana, Carolinas and more.

We were also able to provide a P.E.P Talk Workshop with Dr Zanthia Reddish – Impowerdd LLC. Mother of former Duke University standout and current NBA Atlanta Hawks Cam Reddish. The workshop was a resourceful education and information session for parents around NCAA requirements, SAT/ACT and how to manage the recruiting process for their student-athletes.

Parkview High School (Gwinnett Co.) standout, Jason Edwards, had a successful run throughout the camp. He secured the MVP of the camp as well as two new scholarship offers.

Standout Players from the camp: Aaaron Reddish (Pebblebrook/GA), Earl Burgess III (Dorman, SC), Omarion Smith (Douglas Co/GA), Jackson Price (Hiram/GA), Isaiah Gaines (Pensacola HS/FL), George Pridgett (Legacy,SC) Robert Davis (Farmington HS/MI), Sageny Horace (Port St. Lucie/FL), Sami Pissi (Trinity Christian/GA) + more.

Celebrity photographer and disabled Vietnam veteran Jerome Dorn embodies the very definition of resilience. Born in Philadelphia, the fifth of seven children, Dorn stayed focused throughout his youth, eventually obtaining his degree in Criminal Justice. Dorn has worked with the Philadelphia Police Department, Department of Justice, World Wide Detective Agency, and several other high profile security groups. Throughout his successful career, Dorn wrestled with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, an aftereffect of his military service. Battling the pain and debilitating effect of PTSD, Dorn found comfort behind the camera. Photography proved to be not only therapeutic, but life changing as well. Dorn picked up his first camera in 1970 while serving in Vietnam and knew instantly that behind the lens was where he belonged. His shooting style and photographs were special, generating a buzz in the industry. In 1985, he began his career in photojournalism, working in a variety of genres. Dorn’s credentials include fashion, lifestyle photography, photojournalism, and celebrity/red carpet coverage. Working with MSNBC, Jet Magazine, and major publications in Philadelphia and around the country, Dorn has had the honor of capturing the images of hundreds of notable celebrities and politicians including President Barack Obama, George Bush Jr, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Maya Angelou, Jesse Jackson, Rihanna, Snoop Dog, Will Smith, and Tyler Perry. Photography has sent Dorn around the globe, inspiring his passion for civil activism. In 1995, Dorn assembled and led a group of forty-two men to the Million Man March. Together, they spent five days walking from Philadelphia to Washington DC. In his travels, Dorn observed a common theme amongst the youth of the world. Many of the children he encountered seemed lost. Understanding that opportunities for at-risk youth are minimal, Dorn was inspired to make a difference. Established by Dorn in 2011, InDaHouseMedia was built on the idea that there is room in the house for everyone. With InDaHouseMedia, Dorn’s mission is to provide the future generation with positive direction through sports, music, and photography.
