The Prep Hoops Circuit is just around the corner!  It is time for us to start previewing the teams participating in the circuit!

We caught up with Juan Galvan of McAllen Ballers to discuss their upcoming season!  Check out what he had to say!

The History: The program started in 2009 in an effort to keep kids off the streets through the game of basketball 

2020 Goals? Our region is known as more soccer and football. Our goal is to put RGV basketball on the map.

The Mission: To be a positive influence in each young man’s life and help them achieve their ultimate goal of playing college ball.

Why Prep Hoops: Exposure

Team Strengths: Run and Gun. We shoot very well and have very skilled players. 

X-Factor Players: We honestly do not have one X-Factor but our kids play D and that makes them all very dangerous.

Players to Watch: 

6’1 | PG | Elian Gonzalez | is a tremendous defender.

6’2 | PG | Irving Gamez | can scores light out.

6’5 | Ricky Altamirano | scores and plays defense.

6’5 | F | Damian Maldonado| is tough on the boards and can light it up

Circuit Schedule: Space City Collision, Mayhem in the Plex, The Stage, and Grind Region Finals
