     Coach Derek McCord in his fifth year at the helm of Dyer County has the Choctaws battling as of like 9 years ago. When Dyer County beat BTW powerhouse in the early 00's sub state game at the Mid South Coliseum in Memphis, Tennessee with state tournament implications as favorite BTW with Memphis signee Andre Allen, everybody was like "What". The Choctaws are back and strong as ever with the Newbern area producing some great players for the last several years. Moving up to Division AAA, Dyer county at home lost to White Station in a close and heated matchup with the Spartans prevailing. I tell you what, whoever from Memphis that has to travel to Newbern for a sub state matchup will be in a lot of trouble. Following up on a 27-4 last year season record, Dyer County is still relatively young with a strong and experienced junior class that has plenty of summer circuit qualifications. Dyer County are favorites in District 13 and Region 7 with postseason advancement a very serious reality this basketball season.

     Junior Fred Yarbrough (6'3 - 185 lbs., rivals #) had a tremendous summer on the circuit and has made a name for himself as one of the best defenders in his class with his strong and aggressive in your face, stop the ball lock down on the serious tip. Yarbrough also does everything else a coach could ask for with his in the right place for rebounds, bring the ball up against stingy defense, get a steal when needed, nail down an important shot in clutch action and you will hear from this young man all basketball season long. Junior counterpart John Hudson (6'4 - 190 lbs., rivals #) will provide great outside shooting all season long with his vital and consistent game whom will be asked to rebound and play strong defense at the same time. Seniors Cody Gross (6'4 - 190 lbs., rivals #) versatile overall play to go along with Jonathan Williams (6'2 - 180 lbs., rivals #) displaying his 37' vertical jump will help gather plenty of rebounds and alter shots all together to complete a good package.

     Dyer County will participate in the Arby's/KFC Classic in Kentucky. Another stop on the Choctaws travel schedule is the Martin Lions Club Tournament in Martin, Tennessee.   Arby's Classic in Bristol, Tennessee December 27-31.

Recap 8-25-2005


It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. I think there is a book that starts off that way, but I digress.

The anticipation of the upcoming AAU or summer campaign was alive and kicking all over the country in May of 2005, especially in Memphis.

The expectations seemed enormous, having finished second in the 17 and under nationals last season as 16's the Memphis YOMCA seemed primed for the ultimate run.

Something happened on the way to the gym.

It was apparent the Bluff City faithful were not the only parties interested in getting a piece of the star studded squad.

Adidas wanted to get a foothold in the ever burgeoning Memphis hoop scene and this seemed to be the initial move to start this particular ball

So the YOMCA was no longer in the loop and the Memphis Pump-N-Run were officially born.

Taking a peek at the roster one could not blame Adidas for their bold move. Thaddeus Young, Willie Kemp, Wayne Chism, Pierre Niles and Brandon Powell made up a nucleus that would surely lead Team Memphis to the promised land.

The summer campaign started with a most interesting scenario as the "PNR" lost a game to the Mid-State Ballerz, who ironically had Willie Kemp running the show. This was an illusion that would soon change, as Kemp
shortly thereafter joined the PNR.

With all their ducks in a row, the PNR set out to establish themselves and put a benchmark on the national attention that would follow.

The Real Deal on the Hill, the first major tournament of the summer that coaches could attend. The pundits pined for the impending matchup between Team Memphis and the defending mythical goliath The Indy Spiece Heat. The Heat were led by the consensus top player in the class Greg Oden and numerous other high level prospects who could actually match the
PNR with name recognition.

The reputation was established and the aura of the PNR was created as the boys from Memphis soundly defeated the Heat and made a huge cry across the land as the best summer squad in existence.

Another funny thing happened on the way to their future endeavors, nothing.

For some inexplicable reason the PNR did not suit up for any of the Memorial Day festivities and was sparsely seen until the Adidas Super 64 in Atlanta, following the shoe camps.

The aforementioned players participated in various high level exposure camps and the three major shoe camps and kept their names on the tongues of coaches nationwide.

After achieving individual success at these various camps, the boys got back together with the purpose of putting the finishing touches on a grand and final run through the top programs the country had to offer. They added Ridgeway jumping jack Ernest Fields and ECS powerhouse Tim Johnson to the fold and things looked bright.

Once again a funny thing happened on the way to the gym.

The time off and the lack of continuity played havoc on the chemistry of the PNR and they bowed out early in Atlanta.

Heading to Las Vegas for the final big time event of the summer, the PNR seemed poised and ready to achieve. After dominating pool play the lack of chemistry once again reared it's ugly head and some resentment among the players seemed to end this summer campaign on a sour note.

This team had the potential to be one of the best of all time. It is truly unclear what precipitated these events that grounded this team for much of the latter portion of May and June, but it truly had it's effect on their success.

None the less these kids are part of the best class of seniors to dot the Tennessee landscape in many years.

The decision to completely disassociate themselves with the
organization that they grew up playing for in retrospect now seems like a mistake. The YOMCA will continue on with quality younger teams and what to make of the Adidas affiliation with the Bluff City at this juncture is
