Huge news broke on September 21st that the GHSA will be moving four of their eight basketball state championships back to the Macon Centreplex. The Centreplex last hosted the title games in 2015-16 when misplaced baskets and other snafus caused a national uproar. Kyle Sandy and Rameen Forghani weigh in on the new split between Macon and Georgia Tech. At the 17:52 mark, Duluth head coach Cabral Huff joins to discuss this Saturday’s 2017 MCAofGA Preseason Tip-Off Basketball Coaches Clinic & Roundtable along with quick thoughts on the move back to Macon and a preview of the Wildcats’ inaugural Big South Shootout tournament January 1-2, 2018.

The NFL officially kicked off this Sunday but instead Kyle Sandy was in Grovetown to check out some of the CSRA’s top players at Will Avery’s Fall 48 Invite camp. Each team had a handful of players evaluated with UCLA (3:05-8:40), Georiga (8:44-13:47), Georgetown (13:50-19:11), Duke (19:13-23:14), Oregon (23:16-26:10) & Kentucky (26:11-31:54) all discussed.
Tre Gomillion is a 2018 guard out of Aquinas High School in Augusta, Georgia. He averaged 20 points, 13.6 rebounds, 4 assists and 3 steals as a junior and was named Class A-Private Second Team All-State. This is his off-season journal. This is The Process.
Sorry for the delay in writing, it’s been a busy schedule. Now for the long time waiting, after great physical therapy and listening to the doctors, I have officially been cleared 100%. My PT said I did great with my physical therapy and that I was ahead of schedule.
With school in full effect, my schedule is filled with lots of work in addition to plenty of workouts. I feel better than ever, I’m physically lighter, and my jump shot is improving by the day. I am closer to my family more than I have ever been and I love this game of basketball with a whole different passion.
Sunday, September 10th, I attended the Will Avery Fall 48 Camp where the best players around the area all meet in one gym and get after it. The camp opened with drills; it went very smooth, worked on fundamentals and knowing where the open man and spot is on the floor. Great warm-up to the games which everybody waited for.
I have heard that many people have thought that I “fell off” or am “not as good anymore”. But after the games at the camp I proved a lot of people wrong and made a lot of people proud.
I focused mainly on catching the ball from the outlet and exploding down court like Russell Westbrook and finishing strong, and loudly communicating on defense. I felt I did a solid job at that task, and as well focusing on knocking down mid range to 3-point jump shots. For the defensive side I played well, I still have to improve on keeping that off hand off my man while he is penetrating to the basket.
There is always room for improvement and I can only say this is the beginning. More updates to follow and all is in the trust of “The Process”. #LoveOmie #RiPDES
