ACC Barnstorming Recap!!
Last night 101.9 Kiss FM’s Jay Blaze and Clarke Jones hung out at Barnstorming 2017 at D.H. Conely Highschool in Greenville, NC! The Greenville All-Stars took on some of the best players in the ACC from Duke, NC State, Carolina, and ECU. Amile Jefferson from Duke and Kennedy Meeks from Carolina where the stand outs on the court! Joining them on the court were fellow collegiate athletes Isaiah Hicks (UNC), Nate Britt (UNC), Matt Jones (Duke), BeeJay Anya (NC State), Trent VanHorn (Wake Forest), and a few others. Its always nice to see the players come back and interact with the High School seniors, especially the ones who have signed D1 scholarships. It really gives them an opportunity to gauge where they are in comparison to the athletes on the next level. To make matters even better the ACC All-Stars are being coached by UNC Legend Phil Ford. The cool thing about Ford coaching this team is that he is from the area (Rocky Mount, NC). After all the festivities the players hung around for about 12 minutes and signed autographs and talked to admiring fans. It really gave you a chance to see just how down to earth and humble these players were! Great event for the community, families, and participants that all participated and helped make this event a success!
