On Saturday August 17th Icons Sport held its inaugural Underclassmen Breakout camp for rising freshmen (class of 2023) and rising sophomores (class of 2022). We set the stage so these young men could display their talents in front of our staff and other media outlets throughout. The Camp featured 60 players ranging from Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, Florida, and Tennessee. We had some guys in the gym from all circuits (Adidas, Nike, and UAA) as well as guys from some strong independent teams. It was really a joy to sit back and watch guys battle for respect, battle to keep their respect, and guys who just broke out!
