Athletes of the Week
Cager Champions

December 14, 2011

The PlayAllBasketball.Net Pride team recently finished their fall season winning the season and the playoff championship.

The team, made of high school boys basketball players, defeated a strong Troy Athens squad 75-56 to win the championship - their third championship season in a row for the club.

They competed in the high school boys elite upper division and it made out of Clarkston area players. The roster is Nick Tatu, Alan Kamieniecki, Connor Giroux, Tanner Schulte, Mike Risi as well as Taylor Perry, Zach Littleson and Joe Turnbull.

Tatu and Kamieniecki opened their winter season for the Clarkston Wolves Boys Varsity Basketball team with a 60-49 win over Orchard Lake St. Mary's last Friday.

The team is proudly sponsored by Clarkston area business PlayAllBasketball.Net which was created by Dave Smith, a coach of a girls' Amateur Athletic Union basketball team.

He noticed schools being closed and gym space disappearing and a continuously growing number of children living more and more sedentary lifestyles. He decided to do something about it and created Play All Basketball with the aim to maximize the usage of basketball facilities in the Clarkston and Waterford areas.

Play All Basketball provides social, educational, athletic and career improvement opportunities for youth and adult basketball fans. They specialize in gym rentals, basketball training and programming and connects players, parents, coaches, fans and vendors with convenient, affordable basketball resources.

Watch Tatu, Kamieniecki and their fellow Wolves in action at their next home game on Dec. 22 against Troy Athens.
