2017 Battle At The Hive closes with a bang

NWA Mavericks Sharia Wilson, Imani Montgomerey & Alexis Evans 

It’s always great to catch talent outside of Texas because as a very wise man once said, “talent is everywhere” On top of that, that same person also mentions over and over and over, “it’s not what you do, it’s who you do it against” so having an open mind on observing what you’re looking at and applying those two quotes that I put out over and over again should help parents and players during the process of trying to help their kids or themselves get to the next level. I opened up my Battle At The Hive coverage on Friday night watching a very talented Oklahoma Swarm 15U Bluestar squad and I closed watching the same team play a surprising NWA Mavericks squad, the name itself caught my attention and was pleased to catch even more talent at the various sites before my trip back to Texas. With that being said, stay tuned for a mini story on that 15U Oklahoma Swarm squad as well as a Tip Sheet from the event and if you follow me on Twitter and Instagram, you’ll catch some surprises along the way
