I really appreciated the hospitality that was presented and the atmosphere was off the chain as the youngings would say.  Reggie Morris, Jr is a first-class act type of a guy and I will always support his events and do my best to help with the cause.  Brand Jordan has picked one of the best guys to represent with his program.  Redondo plays hard on every posession and is always in the game at the end, that is a result of the preparation from the coaching staff.  Great job and keep up the good work.  GPA Scouting is very proud to support the event.
