TEAM FRENJI has long been known for getting positive people involved with the program, Kenny Anderson, Fred Quartlebaum, Ed Pinckney, Danya Abrams to name a few and just recently we added another exciting piece to the program. Malloy “Future” Nesmith, pictured, has agreed to get involved with the program coming this September. He will most likely assist with skills development, clinics and AAU teams. He will also be a part of the FW Charity Classic in 2011 either as a coach or staff member. For those who dont know who he is here is a highlight reel from EBC and the Rucker. He is a high school great and D1 player at Utah State. He has also been to many NBA training camps, most notably the Golden State Warriors. Future is one of the greats to play at EBC and the Rucker. We at Frenji Sports are excited to have such as great addition to the program. Lets welcome him to the family.

TEAM FRENJI would like to introduce you the newest member of the Frenji Sports Family, Coach MICKEY CAREY. Mickey comes to us via Westchester CC. He has been helping Frenji for the past 3 years with his involvement with the Frankie Williams Charity Game.
Mickey’s coaching career started in 2004 where he began working with a first year AAU program called The Quick Release Hawks, based out of Lynchburg, Virginia. He was the assistant coach to the program director, Curtis Staples for the 14U boy’s team. I stayed with Curtis and the Hawks for the next 3 years as the team moved up in age groups. That Quick Release Hawks team over its 3years playing together qualified for 2 AAU D2 National Tournaments, 3 YBOA National Tournaments, and produced 7 young men that went on to recieve an athletic schoilarship to play sports in college.
In 2007, he joined the coaching staff at Westchester Community College, where he has been fortunate to be able to broaden my basketball knowledge and experiences. He is in charge of day to day operations, recruiting and player development at WCC.
Currently he is working with us to develop our Next Step combine training for September. He will also be coaching in the AAU Program for TEAM FRENJI in 2011. Team age has yet to be determined. TEAM FRENJI welcomes Coach Mickey to the family and stay updated on his ideas and role right here on the blog.

TEAM FRENJI supports Porsha in quest for the right fit and will keep people updated all summer long.
2010 CYP MVP and TEAM FRENJI player 6’0 PG JABARIE HINDS of Mt. Vernon HS has his list of colleges down to a Top 7. Here’s the article: Although Hinds spent the early part of the spring resting from an ankle injury, he was still able to hit the road with his Westchester Hawks team.
Hinds shined in the AAU Nationals and Super Showcase and receive more offers. According to Hinds, “Oklahoma, Boston College, and Cincinnati” have been added to his already expansive list of scholarship offers that already included UConn, Oklahoma State , UNLV, James Madison, Louisville, Seton Hall, West Virginia, Wake Forest, Rutgers and St. John’s.
But with a month away from the regular high school season, Hinds has finally decided to shorten his list to, “Oklahoma State, West Virginia, UNLV, UConn, Miami, Wake Forest and Cincinnati,” said Hinds.
When asked whether he plans on taking any school visits, Hinds responded, “Right now, I know I’m visiting, UNLV and Oklahoma State. Not sure with the rest yet. I wanna make a decision before the season.”
Next month will mark the beginning of the iS8/Fall Tip-Off Classic in Jamaica, NY and Hinds looks to lead his Mount Vernon team to the championship before the regular season begins.
