Coach Byron Gillespie and his 10th Grade ran through the competition at the Nola Super 60 taking home the Trophy.
EOTO: EOTO had some of the most fun teams to watch on the Georgia Cup circuit, notably the teams from the middle school and high school divisions. The 13U, 15U, and 17U teams all came away with championships and had multiple players of note. The 13U got great play in the series from Toneari Lane, who was one of the standouts of the middle school divisions. The 15U saw players like Cameron Phillips, Shamari McLeod, and the Rosser twins. The 17U had Georgia Cup staple players like Ken Stanciel and JaQuan Morris. Be on the lookout for this program in the future.
EOTO had a good weekend at SSA Ga Cup. Three teams competed and had a combined record of 14-1. The 2017 16u Team went 5-0, the 2018 15u Team went 4-1 and the 2020 13u Team went 5-0. All resulting in Championships. Good job fellas and good luck to the 13u Team on their way to Chicago for a tournament.
Toneari Lane, 2020 PF, Lawrenceville (GA): No seventh grader came close to Lane. In fact, most onlookers needed to do a double take at the roster. How could this physically mature, assertive power player be so young?
The2018 Team had a great ending to their season. Capturing the USBA Nationals crown. Coach Dennis Wonnum and his team ran the table on all of the competition, going 8-0 in Myrtle Beach, SC. They defeated Nova Game Changers (VA) 72-22, Promise Basketball (SC) 59-44, Vortex 65-19 and Virginia Elite 66-47 in Pool Play. In Bracket Play and the Championship they defeated South River Shooters 72-71, Key Players (WV) 76-73, High Point Hornets (NC) 76-73 and Fayetteville Elite (NC) 64-61 in the Championship. This is our quest to prepare all of our kids fundamentally for High School and hopefully College. EOTO, Each One Teach One...
Our 8th Grade Team coached by Jerel Heyward and Chuck Graham won the 8th Grade division of the Peach State in Augusta. The kids played well and went undefeated all the way through.
Each One Teach One Basketball Club of Central Virginia (EOTO-VA) returned home with a Top 10 finish in the USBA National Championships 10th Grade Division. The tournament was held July 9th thru 13th in North Myrtle Beach, SC earlier this month.
Undermanned due to injuries and schedule conflicts, the team of ninth and tenth graders from Central Virginia area high schools hit the road for a week long basketball trip. After a tough start in pool play, losing games they probably should have won, Each One Teach One pulled together for dynamic back-to-back victories, earning their way to the American Division semi-final game. They finished third in their bracket and seventh overall in their 10 Grade Division.
“Everybody on our team plays a key role in our game plan,” says Coach Lathius Bradley, “and when a few guys are missing it’s tough to fill the gaps.” He noted that in the semi-final game, "every time we cut deep into their lead, their coach would bring in five fresh players off the bench." Says Bradley, “I’m real proud of the way our guys played and what we accomplished in our first season together. I have no doubt if we had gone to Nationals at full strength, there would have been a different ending.”
Players that made the trip to USBA Nationals included; #2-Mason Livers (G), #10-Colby Hall (G), #18-Andrew Taylor (F), #20-Isaiah Gholson (G/F), #23-Hunter Johnson (G), #24-Quincy Green (G/F), #35-Anwar Collins (C), #42-Jordan Walker (F/C).
Congratulations to the EOTO-VA squad, team management and a strong parental contingent for a good first season under the EOTO umbrella..
Playing short-handed due to illness and injuries, EOTO's 10th grade squad from Virginia had an impressive outing at the USBA NC Elite Memorial Day Classic in Butner, NC.
After a slow paced 8 point win in the morning, EOTO found themselves down 14 at the half in the semi-final contest. In the 3rd quarter, they turned up the pressure on both ends of the court. On the heels of key steals by guard TeAndrey Taylor, five second half 3's from G/F Quincy Green, and major moves to the hoop by guards Damir Gordan and Colby Hall, EOTO-VA completed the comeback and moved on to the championship game.
In the finals the under-manned squad continued its aggressive play, walking away with the 2nd place medal. Congratulations EOTO-VA!
Our program would like to congratulate coach "J" Heyward and the 6th Grade team for winning the AAU State Championship, in Nashville, TN. In only it's 1st year of existence the team managed to breeze through the sub state and pool play of the state tourney. Only to follow with a total team effort to defeat nationally ranked #4 Memphis War Eagles by 8! We are extremely proud of these young men as they have made history. The team became the 1st team from Knoxville,TN to ever win AAU State Tournament!
Congrats to Coach Dennis Wonnum and his assistant Coach Collier on their big win over the Georgia Grizzles in the Championship Game. The game went in to overtime; Elijah Lopez hit a 3 which sealed the deal for the win! Tylan Oglesby was the tournament MVP. Jamison Collier, Tylan Oglesby and Damon Davis were chosen for the All-Tournament Team. Great Job EOTO 7th Grade boys!!!

Coach Bradley has been coaching and developing kids in the Petersburg and Chesterfield, Va area for the last eight years. He is dedicated to the youth in these communities and has built a good repoire with area coaches and young athletes.
Coach Graves is one of the most aggressive recruiters of young basketball players that I have seen in a long time, he has knack for finding young talent. Graves coaches and developes talent in the Dinwiddie and Hopewell, VA area. He coached last year for Team Crossover and brings valuable experience and character to our team.
Les Johnson has been coaching AAU basketball for twelve years and has a ton of experience in sports from AAU, high school and college. He has decided to run a team instead of coaching, because he wants to change the negative perception surronding AAU basketball. His ultimate goal: Each One Teach One!
Congrats to the EOTO 2018 Boys Team on their second place finish. The Las Vegas Live Tournament was a great experience for our boys. They went undefeated up to the Championship game. It was good to get out of our element to see the West Coast talent. On our way to the "Ship" we saw some great competition. We had an opportunity to play Vallejo Hustlers (CA), Vegas Elite (NV), Inland Force (CA), D. Gibb Hoops (TX) and 1 Team 1 Dream (CA). We lost the Championship game by 3 points to the Houston Rookies 72-69.
Duluth, GA-- It’s very rare that you find athletic programs for youth with a vision other than their production as an athlete on the court, but in addition to their growth as individuals as people in the community. Established in 2004, Each One Teach One (“EOTO”) based out of Duluth Georgia is a basketball program, “dedicated to assisting student-athletes involving its participants in community service projects and building character to become productive members of their community.”
Originally, EOTO was organized to give a player the opportunity to play AAU Basketball, that more defined programs didn’t extend the offer to, so other players in the area could have the AAU playing experience. Although EOTO was a program that had early success, their initial goal was to in time, eventually transform young players into complete basketball players. EOTO also provides personal relationships for each athlete to ensure they each exceed their potential of becoming “confident, competent, and competitive individuals prepared to face life’s challenges with a commitment to excellence and serving others as they have been served.”
The EOTO philosophy revolves around the player development and the importance of team work, competing for one common goal of coming together to win. “One Family, One Team,” a motto that carried a team of eight and nine-year-olds to an outstanding second place finish at AAU Nationals (division one).
EOTO is open to both boys and girls. Boys ages 8u, 10u, and 11u, and girls grades 3rd-8th, and high school with plans of expanding to more age groups in the near future. You can expect to find EOTO in several D1 Spects tournaments in addition to YBOA, and making appearances out of state as well in Charlotte NC, Birmingham AL, New Orleans LA, Little Rock, AR, and Orlando FL.

Congrats to both EOTO 11u squads for a very good showing at YBOA Nationals, in Kissimmee, Fl. The only blemish on their records was when they played each other in the Elite Eight. Scott Belyeu's Black team beat Ken Eskridge's Green team by a 9 point margin 55-46. That was the closest that anyone came to the Black squad. The Black team went on to beat the tournament favorite Central Florida Magic by a score of 51-39. earning them a chance to face the Tennessee Hot Shots in the Championship, which they won 65-46.
Congrats Boys one more State title to add to the list. Black team had a good showing also as usual. This weekend it was the Green Teams chance to shine. Walking through the tournament with an unbeaten performance, capping it off with a 16 point victory over the Atl Celtics. Way to go fellas...
Congrats to both 11u teams for going undefeated in the YBOA State Championships. It was decided that the Championship should not be played. As they were all winners. The State title and Trophie came back home again for the second year in a row. Thanks fellas and congrats. Lets keep working hard...
EOTO combined 13 players to compete in the Celtics ABC Tourney. There were some very good teams including Rhytes Warriors and the Arkansas Hawks, who are #2 and #8 in the country respectively. The boys played hard and gave it their all. But the two powerhouses were well prepared and very strong. It was a learning experience for the team and coaches. Which tells us we have plenty of work to do before nationals. Good luck Boys.
EOTO Black completed another perfect tournament with wins over Elite Basketball, ATL Celtics, GA Tarheels, EOTO Green and the Memphis Wildcats. On their way to another Championship. Derrick Lawrence was the tournament MVP. Armon Williams and Trey Morrison were chosen for the All-Tournament team. Way to go fellas..
Congrats to Coach Scott and the Black Team for their win. Both teams did very well in pool play by going undefeated. The championship game which was played between the two EOTO teams was tied until late in the 3rd quarter. When Juwan White, Travis Anderson and Myles Beleyu hit back to back 3 pointers, after that the Green team struggled. Great tournament and CONGRATS to both teams you played well.

10u Black - YBOA State Champs
May 2, 2010
In a repeat of the 2009 YBOA State Championship, the last two teams standing were EOTO and the Atlanta Celtics... and once again, bragging rights and a title were on the line.
The game was tight and even had a tied score at half time. It wasn't until the final 3 minutes of the 4th quarter when numerous missed opportunities on the Celtics's side, coupled with steals and baskets on Eoto's side, allowed EOTO to pull ahead to win the game and thus the YBOA GA State Title.
Kudos to the EOTO organization, coaches, players, parents and fans for their continued support. Hope to see you at Nationals!
PEACH STATE HOOPS: April 19, 2010
Class of 2012 point guard Jasmine Jenkins (Gainesville, GA/E.O.T.O.) picked up a scholarship offer from UAB. Jenkins is a 5-7 general with a smooth jumper and a slick handle. She's just now stepping onto the exposure scene and UAB's offer should be the first of many she receives over the next year or so.

Both 10u Teams Celebrate Victories this weekend!
10u Black stayed in Georgia and played in the YBOA Roundball Classic. After winning a close pool play game Saturday night verses Team Athens and edging by the Tenneessee Superstars in the Semi-Finals, 10u Black once again had to face Team Athens in the Finals. Although, the teams were the same, the end result was far different, as the final score reflects... 44-30.
10u Green went on the road and participated in the Alabama Hustlers Tournament in Birmingham, AL. The win was assured early in the tournament as they beat teams in the 10u and 11u age groups.
Congratulations to all players and Head Coaches Kelvin Lee and Scott Belyeu.

We have always had a great relationship and have always supported each other. Now "We Are Family". This is a great fit as there are alot of very talented young men in Jays organization. The combination of these groups could be dangerous on a National level. It is also an honor to have another dedicated leader as our partner. We look forward to see the results.
