Francisco’s Finest: The Classic at Damien (Surprises)

LA VERNE, CA—Each and every season The Classic at Damien continues to build it’s reputation and as it stands now, it’s the “must-see” tournament on the West Coast. With an eighty team field broken up into five divisions, quality and quantity are at your doorstep. With that being said here is the breakdown of our observations throughout the final day at the top two divisions: Platinum and Gold. 

Sean Newman Jr. (Culver City)

2020, CG, 6-foot, 155 pounds

Neuman is one of the better kept secrets in So-Cal.

Joel’s Take: The willowy Newman just became eligible after transferring from Santa Monica and his presence was felt immediately. He is a smooth scorer who can covert buckets from all three levels. While attacking he shows a solid burst and once he gets in the paint area he has an uncanny ability to hang in the air for the finish. He does have a slight frame, but after some weight training and overall physical development, he is a potential D1 player.
