The Boys Team Camp is wrapping up today over at Missouri State University and as is my tradition, I took in the All-Star game this morning. With 14 teams and over 240 players, the game featured the top 10% of players in camp. My MVP, on the basis of a pair of quality goals scored, was senior Eric Grisham (#10, Maroon team) of the Washington Blue Jays. One of three senior Blue Jay’s to be included, the District 10 member will look to improve their finish this season despite losing 11 players from last years team. I’ve got an interview with Coach I’ll share with you in August on the Blue Jays.
I put some video’s from the All-Star game up on my YouTube Channel as well. Check them out.
