GMC Hoops Alumni Performance In Coaches Against Cancer Game Begs The Question–How About a GMC Hoops Old Timers Game?April 10, 2009 on 3:13 pm | In General, Colonia Freshmen Summer League, GMC Hoops Classics, GMCBCA Senior All-Star Game | Comments Off
PERTH AMBOY, NJ–After watching some of the GMC Boys Basketball Alumni do very well in the Coaches Against Cancer Game at the GMCBCA Senior All-Star Game, I went away thinking, “How about having an Alumni Game?” A GMC Hoops Old-Timers Game would be great to have. Now while it is true that former players like Donnie Reid, Drew Hill, Matt Gigliello, Steve Liberty, Jose Rodriguez, Kevin Baptiste-Ousley, John Wojcik, and John Greco are all still relatively young, there are many former players that are still in good shape.
Several years ago, John Haley tried to organize such a game to be played between the Girls and Boys GMCT Championship Games at the RAC, but unfortunately the idea was shot down. Such legends as Brian Taylor had expressed interest in playing in such a game. Just to have great players such as Taylor, Blake Taylor, Gary Brokaw, Larry Spigner, Tony Newsom, Mike Doctor, Ray Stewart, Buck Jenkins, Jay Williams, John Celestand, Dewey Ferguson, Tony Lee, David Capers, Mars Mellish, Donnell Lumpkin, and so many others get together for such a game, or just to be honored would be a great moment celebrating the history and tradition of the GMCT and the league in general.
COLONIA, NJ–On Thursday afternoon, GMC Hoops was notified by Brian O’Lone, the JV and assistant coach for Colonia High School that he is looking for teams to join the two annual summer leagues for JV and Freshmen Basketball that will be held at CHS. Sponsored by Woodbridge Recreation, the leagues will start in late June with the Freshman slated to begin on June 28th while the JV will start in June 30th.
The Freshmen league will be for players entering the 8th and 9th grade in September 2009 while the JV League will be for 9th and 10th grades projected to be on their JV rosters during the 2009-2010 season. Players younger than that such as a 6th grader are also welcome to play if they’re good enough. It is the coach’s call. Each team is guaranteed 8 or 9 games during the course of the summer. Game start times will range anywhere from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM, and each league will be held two nights a week.
Cost for the league is $475.00 for a team of 12 players. It is first come, first served for the 16 spots that are available. For further information, please contact, Brian O’Lone at ICCoach@aol.com, or download the form to register. GMC Hoops plans to be down at both leagues this summer to take in some of the action.
