Last time MemphisHoopers.com
staff wrote about East was four years ago and hear is a
little excerpt. Long time when a school doesn't do
nothing, all schools go thru the cycle, some more than
others depending on the administration's position.
Bottom line do they want to win or just treat it like
they have too because it's their job. Memphis City
Schools is really bad about that.

"Coach Mosby once again will
have a tough year as player quality is down at the large
mid town school. The departure of Antonio
Whitehead will open the door for anyone to shine at the
once high flying school. You can't count coach Mosby out
the picture right yet with a young class in the works."

This was wrote yesterday
Former Memphis State standout and
Sheffield coach Cheyenne Gibson takes over the helm at
East and in his third year has the school definitely on
the right track. The first two years
were tough for Coach Gibson
but he has the kids buying into his program and they
will make some serious noise in talent loaded Division
AAA and maybe Regionals. East has always produced some
of the best athletes from neighboring communities in
basketball and football from former MemphisHoopers.com
player Cassius Vaughn (Ole Miss senior safety)
(6'5 - 205 lbs.
the rough and No. 1 sleeper in class 2010)
has hit the scene harder than any other player in the
city as he came from the sky. This kid can really play
and has the body to go along with his exceptional
is one of the best defenders in the city and ball
handling is exceptionally well, shot and court decisions
will better during the upcoming season. Other seniors
(6'6 - 200 lbs.), and
will contribute heavily all season long. Sophomore
(5'10 - 175 lbs.,
is one of the best 10th grade
guards in the city.
East will be
attending the annual Martin Luther King in Memphis and
face Memphis Manassas in the first round and if they win
that game they will meet Memphis Melrose in the second
round. East will also travel to Carbondale, Illinois on
the beautiful campus of Southern Illinois for the Annual
Carbondale Christmas Tournament. They will pair against
Memphis Mitchell in the Jack Jones Classic at University
Young players will be vying for some major playing time

will contribute respectively throughout the season.
