JAMODI Loaded With Talent For Another Summer

Their highlight reel has notched more than a thousand hits on "You Tube."

They took home the grand championship at the Prime Time Sports Springtime Shootout.

Again this summer AAU team JAMODI will head for a second straight year to the Reebok Big Time Tournament in Las Vegas.

Representing seven East Texas schools, the 11 young men of JAMODI are the cream of the crop.

Texas Roundball ranks five of the JAMODI members in the state's top 100. For these players calls from recruiters and scouts is fast becoming a way of life.

"It's just one thing that I've got to overcome," said Chapel Hill's Chris Mass. "I'm not really concerned about recruiting right now because it is so early in my senior year. So I'm going to let everything play out."

JAMODI was masterminded by coach Mickey Smith, who wanted to shine some exposure on East Texas hoops.

Now this all-star AAU squad has traveled throughout the country putting the eastern half of the Lone Star state on the basketball radar.

"It's kind of hard because whenever you go into a game, you've got people watching you," said Kody Molloy of Whitehouse. "You have to try your best but then you are also like I don't want to try to hard and screw up. But, you are working really hard."

With one tournament win and a final four finish already under their belt, it seems JAMODI handles the pressure just fine.

This weekend eight of the team JAMODI ballers will be on the court displaying their talent at the TCU Elite Camp. Only about 200 of the state's top players receive an invite to the camp, JAMODI has eight of them.
