Top Talent Headed for Camp Springs, MD


October 26, 2009 - Friday the 30th and Saturday, October 31st returns the 3rd Annual Maryland Prep Shootout to Progressive Christian Academy (Camp Springs, MD). Once again, future college stars and possible fuure hoops professionals will compete over a weekend.

"Last year, 30 Division I basketball players were here" said PCA's prep coach, Jason Forbes, today, of the level of talent to expect. His program alone has "over the past two years had nine Division I kids".
