Scott’s All*Stars organization started on January 15th 2010 with our first tryouts conducted by the president Marcus Scott IV, head coach Daryl West and assistant coaches Khari Collins and Kevin Corwick. The vision for Scott’s All*Stars began when Marcus Scott, IV noticed there was no basketball programs designed for children his son’s age in the Hinesville area. While many thought starting a 10 and under AAU basketball program was a great idea, no one wanted to commit the time and effort needed to start one. Mr. Scott started doing research so he could discover the best way to implement his program.
Although AAU is a great basketball program Mr. Scott realized it lacked one great quality which was an academic component. By not striving for academic excellence along with athletics the players would have a false sense of what was necessary to reach success in life. This is why Scott’s All*Stars not only requires the players to have a passing grade, but also to maintain an 80 average. Scott’s All*Stars teaches their players that average is below average and excellence is what is expected. Mr. Scott also wanted the players to always feel a need to give back to the community, which is why he added a community service element to his program. Scott’s All*Stars is committed to working with all players until they graduate from high school and attend college. Scott’s All*Stars’ goal is for all players to receive a college scholarship for basketball, academics or both! Scott’s All*Stars guarantees that all the original players that remain int he program until they graduate from high school will receive a full college scholarship.
Scott’s All*Stars competed in many tournaments this year. In only our first year we are now a premier (academic) basketball program in Georgia. Scott’s All*Stars is not a AAU program, but an academic program that incorporates basketball and academic excellence along with AAU basketball. All players understand that academics are and always will be more important than athletics.
Head Coach Darrell West lead Scott’s All*Stars to a 14-8 (2-3 at Nationals) record which allowed our team to qualify for Division I, II and III National Championship. We also won the Super Regional in Charleston, South Carolina. We also competed in the Division III National tournament in Hampton, Virginia. We finished 2-3, beating the number one (previously undefeated) team in our pool by nine points. Furthermore, we have surpassed the required grade point average with a team GPA of 87. This is also a remarkable accomplishment, which follows our commitment to academic excellence instead of academic mediocrity. We look forward to expanding to four teams next year.
