       EAST 2009-2010                                                      

     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.

2005 East Breakdown Excerpt

This was wrote in 2005

    "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."  

2009 East Breakdown   

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) 2005. Senior Jarekius Bradley, (6'5 - 205 lbs. diamond in 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 skills. Senior Anthony Rhyme (5'10- 175 lbs. diamond in the rough) 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 Nic King (6'6 - 200 lbs.), and Brandon Maclin will contribute heavily all season long. Sophomore Alex Anderson, (5'10 - 175 lbs., diamond in the rough) 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 of Memphis.

    Young players will be vying for some major playing time from freshmen Matthew Butler, (6'1 - 175 lbs.), and senior Theodore King will contribute respectively throughout the season.

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
