Husband/Wife duo, Steve and LaShanta Walker, using their passion for the game and love for their community to impact Fayette County.
Took a trip to Fayetteville, AR to catch the action at the Rockin’ the Hardwood event last weekend. Here are just a few players that stood out at the event:
’21 6’2 Guard/Forward Chante Embry (Prague, AR) Watching her play, I was shocked she was only a 9th grader. She has size. She is aggressive. She has a motor, plays hard, and runs the floor. She can knock down the three. She has deceptive quick feet to defend on the perimeter. She had committed to Oklahoma State but recently re-opened her recruitment.
’21 6’2 Post Anna McCredy (Fayetteville, AR) A Stretch post that can drill the 3. Nice size, mobility, and length.
’21 5’10 Guard/Forward Faith Taylor (Memphis, TN) Could possibly be one of the most versatile players to come out of Memphis. She can play the 1-4 spots.
’23 5’9 Combo G Chloe Clardy (Conway, AR) It’s gonna be a treat to watch the development of this young lady. She can operate as a distributor or in scoring mode. Such an unselfish player. Has a mature frame for a 7th grader. Plays super composed. Can shoot the three and has no problem getting to the rack for the dish or the bucket.
