We interviewed Dwayne Wise who recently was named as TeamDurant 15u Recruiting and Marketing Coordinator. This is a huge project for the DMV region, our program, as well talents, said Wise.
Team Durant Combine Staff including:
Program Director (Osman Bangura), Director of Recruiting (Angelo Hernandez), and former Virginia Cavaliers Star Skills Director (Corey Alexander),have all coached at the highest levels of grassroots, as well as High School, said Wise. TeamDurant partnership with the State of The Art facility (TheStJamesSports/Entertainment Complex) is what separates this Combine from the competition. We will have two divisions, starting with 8u-14u who will register for free, then our 15u-17u Invite only. The talents will test their skills, and compete in team format, throughout the course of the day. Several media/Scouts have inquired, and are expected to cover the combine. We will have some of the top DMV as well as the Pennsylvania region talents, confirmed to participate in the 15u-17u invite only portion.
