A look at the roster and breakdown of NC Spartans East coached by Bishop McGuinness Head Coach Josh Thompson, one of the top coaches in the state.

Nathan Blalock– unsigned senior from a small private school in Kernersville flew under the radar.  Cut from the same mold as 2018 NC Spartan Dan Gross with his athleticism- will wow you with some putback dunks.  Honor student.  D3 schools should look here for a late pickup!

Cameron Caroway- 6’6 and scores at all 3 levels.  Is a game changer with shooting ability and length.  Should have a breakout summer after playing on the 17U travel circuit for the 2nd straight season.  D2+ prospect

Troy Griggs– the consumate point guard- handles pressure, gets others involved, vocal, strong.

Ty Cressman– 6’7 with rang out to the 3 point line.

Garret Flinchum– High IQ, high character, excellent shooter and good passer.  Solid in all facets of the game.

Zach Chesnet– High scoring combo guard that plays both ends of the floor at a high level.  Defends with intensity and plays harder than anyone else on the floor.  Excellent mid range pullup and 3 point shooter, and can finish in traffic in the paint.  College coaches who need a PG/combo should be in attendance at his games.

Robert Landry- 6’4 knock down shooter who rebounds well and out of his area.   Multiple 40+ point games in his junior HS season.  Dad played at UNC and older brother is at UNC now on JV team.

Isaac Spainhour– An all Northwest NC performer by the Winston Salem Journal as a sophomore, Spainhour will have a breakout spring and summer with the Spartans.  Another combo guard who is tough, smart, and strong.  College coaches should take note now as his stock will continue to rise throughout his junior and senior seasons.
