Delta College has strong class for 2011

Posted: June 23, 2011 by Jared Field in JUCO

After turning a mediocre season into a solid run into the NJCAA playoffs this past season, Delta College is building on its run with a strong recruiting class for 2011:

Jaylen Magee, Flint Northwestern

Derrick Washington, Saginaw BV

Jakob Holland, USA

Travon Cotton, Saginaw Heritage

George Smithers, Saginaw BV

Tyler Ellis, Bay City Western

William Sams, Montrose (via LSSU)

Obviously Magee is the best player in this class, but I think Washington is a big-time sleeper. The best athletes in this group are Cotton and Sams, who played at both Grand Blanc and Montrose in high school.

It’s that time again. Every year we announce the names of the eligible seniors for the Bruin Club All-Star Game at Mott Community College. If you are on this list and you want to play, please RSVP to field.jared@gmail.com as soon as possible so we can get the rosters finalized. If you do not respond in a timely manner, you may be out of luck.

This year’s game is scheduled for June 23 at 7:30 p.m. in the Steve Schmidt Gymnasium at Mott Community College. Be there 30 minutes early.

We had a great game last year and we want to keep the momentum going.

Here’s a great opportunity to get noticed by all the right people. It’s one thing for a college coach to hear positive things about your ability, but it’s quite another thing to see it. Let’s face it, not all of you are going to be seen in person by college coaches. Here’s a chance to showcase your ability on the net.

Thomas Lovachis, former standout at Holly High School (now at Concordia), might be the guy to help you out.

Here are a few examples of work he has done for other local athletes:

Ryan Hickoff, Fenton

Kyle Sherwin, Holly

Mitch Vallie, Goodrich

If interested, contact Thomas at 517-388-3400 or by e-mail me at lovact@cuaa.edu.
