According to 757 preps, Hampton has a transfer who played for Phoebus last year, they said he played 16 minutes. 3. Towsons' staff isn't going anywhere. The coach is only in his first year and was able to land a top notch recruit like Mason. You know the game, stars bring other stars/quality players to the program. Mason didn't just come to Towson just for the basketball program, he came for the coach. Mason was lined up to be playing ball further up north. But you're right on one thing, Barber is awesome. Can't wait to see where he ends up signing. And Hampton is very young (juniors),they'll be the hands down favorites in the PD next year.
Don't be thrown off by who is standing up during the game. Who puts the plans together in practice, Coach Brower. Who sets the tone beginning at the jv level where Coach Brower's son develops the kids under his dad's tutelage, Coach Brower. Who coached and developed the last couple of state winners at Hampton High, Coach Brower. How do I know this? He has been doing the same thing for decades. I don't know or understand why you guys are prejudiced against the old school coaches, but get over it! Are you kidding me? I am embarassed that you guys are even trying to go there. Who coached Eric Brown, Coach Brower. Coach Brower's team this year plays like all of his teams have on defense. His signature is all over this team. You guys just haven't been around long enough to have seen this stuff season in and season out for a couple of decades. Will Brown take over at some point, yes. Will his teams look like Coach Brower's teams, yes. That is called being a protege. Give me a break! Kids are going to see 1-31 at Towson. They won't be coming to Towson. Remember they play in a conference with ODU, VCU, and GMU. Those teams will continue to get the best players because they have history. Towson was the first school to pursue Mason according to Mason, so this coach didn't start the process it doesn't seem. If you have more history on Mason's recruitment let me know, but according to him Towson recruited him first. Towson's coach just started, so this process was already in place. It wasn't because of this coach. It seems he continued it, but he didn't start it. Most rich people get their money through inheritance. This coach just got rich. So that Hampton High transfer has had as much impact as the Kecoughtan, Bethel, or Phoebus transfers over the years. My point about the transfers is not that, oops one slipped in, but that Coach Brower does not build his program around them like all of the other programs in the Hampton School district portion of the Peninsula District. It is funny that these coaches keep taking transfers then their teams don't play with any unity and they are surprised.
