The first kid up is a new member of our crew, James Stewart. James is a transfer from Sayreville HS in New Jersey. He is doing bands for the first time and is squatting 275lbs. A little shaky but not bad for the first time.

Jacari is in the 8th grade and he is tremendously talented and of course they cannot be here if they cannot play.  He is on his way to Seton Hall Prep in South Orange New Jersey.
