                  CRAIGMONT 2010-2011                                                      

       The Chiefs in Division 14 AAA with Coach Taylor in his eighth year at the helm have taken over as the best team in the north section of the city surpassing Raleigh Egypt. The loss of some great seniors in Edrick Bruce to Shaw Community College, Brandon Roberts to school in Texas, and Terrance Durham to prep school in Chicago then probably SEMO. Craigmont again this year has reloaded with another strong athletic group of young men transforming from the undefeated Craigmont Middle team of 3 years ago to a very good junior class. Coach Taylor states he has the best guards in the city and can go the deepest for any team in the Memphis area. Senior Antonio Seals (5'10 - 165 lbs., rivals #) solid summer in a deep guard rotation at Craigmont will lead all guards with his smart play, ball handling and good outside shooting to go along with a 3.5 g.p.a. Senior Rodnerious Lewis (6'5 - 180 lbs., rivals #) strong inside play grabbing double digit rebounds per game, defense is very solid on all other teams tallest players, will  definitely make noise in the middle all season long. Transfer senior Wale Alkinbola (6'5 - 190 lbs. diamond in the rough) from Bartlett will compliment the middle with Lewis during the season. Junior Robert Houston (6'1 - 165 lbs., rivals #) will play large minutes with his strong guard play coming off a very good summer on the circuit with his overall knowledge and strong play. Another senior Kymerly Lezy (6'4 - 185 lbs., diamond in the rough) and junior Darius Gibson (6'6 - 190 lbs., rivals #) will cement the middle with a nice rotation as the guards give other teams fits with their aggressive play heading into district play and going into postseason advancement. Bartlett and Craigmont will battle during the season and should meet in the District Championship game and also can play with the other Division AAA counterparts. Craigmont has won the District 3 out of the last 4 years, 2 sub state appearances to also include one state showing at the same time.

      The Chiefs will participate in the annual Martin Luther King Tournament at Melrose High School. The Chiefs will travel to St. Louis for the Midwest Shootout on December 11, 2010. They will also attend the 3rd annual Memphis vs. Atlanta Classic which will have some of the best talent in the country at this highly touted classic. Also they will match up against Melrose in the Penny Hardaway Classic.

      Sophomore Malcolm Taylor (6'7 - 270 lbs. diamond in the rough) big frame and great hands will contribute during the season accordingly. Another strong sophomore is Sam Craft (6'0 - 170 lbs. diamond in the rough) has some of the best hands in the city and therefore will put in valuable minutes all season long. Craigmont seems every year that it can easily go 9-10 deep off the bench with their trademark pressing defense.
