EOTO is established as one of the premier programs in North Georgia. This year the organization helped groom one of the nation’s best shooting guards in Endia Banks of Duluth, Ga. Banks signed with the University of Miami this fall. Program director Ken Huffman also helped oversee signings for a number of players at various other levels. The organization’s ability to meet player’s where they are at and elevate them to the next step has been the trademark for the program.

Coach Huffman on Playing in PSB Tourneys

“We enjoy playing in PSB tourneys, because we get a chance to meet, connect and impress some of the top experts on the travel basketball circuit. PSB provides a diverse group of teams and top tier competition. The professionalism of the staff is also important, because they give honest feedback. Plus the tournaments are in our backyard so it is convenient.”

Brandon Clay on EOTO

“In E.O.T.O., Ken Huffman has developed one of the southeast’s most consistent and productive club programs. His commitment to exposure and skill development at an early age helps to set the program apart from most of its’ peers in the game today. Huffman has placed numerous prospects at all levels of college play including major Power 5 institutions. In doing so, the E.O.T.O. brand recognition has continued to grow as have the number of teams in the organization. We’re grateful to have several of the teams from around the state of Georgia competing in our events annually as members of the #PSBFamily and look forward to continuing the relationship for years to come.”

Hoopseen's Programs to watch

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.

D1 Spec ts Article

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.

      The EOTO organization is a pipeline of talent that helps promote players to play at the next level. Here is a rundown of what some of their alumae are achieving at the next level. Jasmine Jenkins of Gainesville, Ga.,started 22 games lastyear as a point guard at Vanderbilt University. She enters her senior year in the SECHaley Gerrin of Clarkesville, Ga., enters her junior year at Georgia State this season. Gerrin was in the running as Freshman Player of the Year in the Sun Belt Conferencebefore a season ending back injury sidelined her for the stretch of the season. She has started 31 games in two years and remains as one of the more reliable post players on Sharon Baldwin-Tener’s roster. Tavia Sykes of Flowery Branch, Ga., is writing her success story atGeorgia Regents University as she heads into her junior season. She was named the team’sMost Valuable Player as a Freshman. She is one of the Jaguars most steady performers as she heads into her junior season this year.

      Season Highlights from Ken Huffman

      The EOTO organization headed up by coach Ken Huffman concluded another successful travel season. By Huffman’s account, this year might have been the best as of yet. Their program boasted of 12 total teams and nearly 130 individual players that trained and competed with EOTO .

      Class of 2017 Endia Banks

      Class of 2017 Endia Banks

      What made this year so special in Huffman’s view was watching the top team compete on the nation’s biggest stage. He says, “We went toe to toe with the nation’s best teams. We competed versus Nike EYBL team and showed very well. Our girls never backed down and we played with much heart all July long.”

      Huffman’s Black team played in the bracket championship game of the #PSBSummerInvite and took Central Florida Elite EYBL to the final buzzer. That game gave Huffman’s group invaluable exposure as 75+ college coaches sat on the court to watch.

      EOTO’s success was not limited to just their oldest group. Huffman talked about how well their White team competed all year long. Coached by Jerry Wright, this team was made up of 2019 and 2020 prospects and enjoyed success in multiple tournaments. He noted, “I am proud of how well they competed and won games, even though they lacked a lot of size. They are talented and make our future very bright.”

      Individual Standouts

      Karlie Bearden 200

      EOTO’s Karlie Bearden

      The most satisfying moments while working on the travel ball scene is watching players realize their dreams. Huffman got to watch two of his veteran players commit to the same school on the same weekend last month. Class of 2016 forward Karlie Bearden of Dawsonville, Ga., and Breanna Locke of Flowery Branch, Ga., both committed to coach Katie Pate at Lenoir-Rhyne University. Both players project to be impact players for the Bears in Hickory, N.C. Bearden a 6-foot sharp shooter also provides energy and hustle along the frontline. Whereas Locke is a 5-11 versatile forward who can do everything from arguing essay rebound to handle the ball on the perimeter.

      Maddie Hetzel 200

      Class of 2016 Maddie Hetzel

      Huffman also mentioned class of 2016 guard Maddie Hetzel of Flowery Branch, Ga., as another senior who is positioned to play college basketball next year. The 5-9 guard impressed ProspectsNation.com evaluators and college coaches in the building at the #PSBMayDay with her feel for the game and athleticism. Hetzel already has two college visits set up this fall.

      The biggest stock-riser in the program from this past year is undoubtedly Endia Banks of Duluth, Ga. The 5-10 power wing could be considered to have made the biggest jump of any player in the Southeast following her showing in July. The southpaw’s phone rang non-stop from college coaches as yesterday was the first day that they could call 2017 prospects. Banks already set unofficial visits with six SECand ACC schools this fall. Huffman also noted, “Coaches from the BIG and Big XII are also calling on Banks. She will focus on the schools in the Southeast first and then figure out the rest in future months.”

      Next Up

      Class of 2017 Deja Mitchell

      Class of 2017 Deja Mitchell

      The testament of a strong program is how well do they replace players after graduation. With Bearden and Locke having carried the load for many years, Huffman does have players ready to fill big roles next season. Heading that list is 6-1 forward Deja Mitchell of Duluth, Ga. The athletic forward has progressed in her development in past years and is beginning to attract the attention of college coaches.

      Class of 2017 Hope Forrester

      Class of 2017 Hope Forrester

      Watch for class of 2017 post Hope Forrester of Jefferson, Ga., to have a breakout high school season. The 6-2 interior player embraces rebounding and is effective with finishing with either hand around the basket. Another class of 2017 prospect from Duluth that Huffman is optimistic about is Brianna Dixon. At 6-1 she has size that is reserved for post players, however she is a natural point guard. She is only scratching theargument essay conclusion surface of her potential. Finally watch for class of 2017 wing Nia Lee of Lawrenceville, Ga., to make a big jump in future months. She has the athleticism to make a big impact in upcoming seasons.

      Two additional class of 2017 prospects that may be flying slightly under the radar are Abbie Franklin of Homer, Ga., and Hanna Grogan of Gainesville, Ga. Huffman says, “Franklin is a steady ball handler and can make shots. While Grogan made a big contribution for our Green team this year. I expect both to play big roles for us next year.”

      Future

      Class of 2019 Caroline Wysocki

      Class of 2019 Caroline Wysocki

      There is still plenty of talent that is in Huffman’s pipeline beyond the class of 2017. The Class of 2018 is headed up by point guard Lexie Sengkhammee of Braselton, Ga., who continues to earn the adoration of evaluators at #TeamPSB events. The Gray team was led by class of 2018 forward Lilian Kennedy and Taniyah Worth of Buford, Ga.  Both are athletic players that continue to make improvement. The class of 2019 is packed with talent which starts with guard Caroline Wysocki of Flowery Branch, Ga., is proving to be one of the most crafty ball-handlers on the circuit. She teamed up withBrooke Hendricks of Clayton, Ga., while playing with the White team. Hendricks, a 5-9 wing, is making strides with her skill and athleticism this year. Huffman also raved about the potential that wing forwards Tajei Blackwell of Gainesville Ga., and Kennedy Powell of Woodstock, Ga., have on the floor. Both players are poised to earn great reputations in future seasons.

      See the Good

      The Big Assist


      September 14 2012

      Shortly after Ken Huffman took the job of athletic director at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Hall County in Georgia, he was driving through the neighborhood one night and noticed 13-year-old Jasmine Jenkins outside playing basketball. He stopped to introduce himself and tell her about the Club. It turned out to be a chance encounter that would change the lives of both Jasmine and Ken.

      When Jasmine took him up on his offer and stopped by the Club, he watched her play basketball and saw a lot of raw talent, the kind of skills that can’t be taught. At the same time, he recognized that Jasmine had an unstable home life, not unlike his own childhood growing up in a struggling, single-parent household. She lacked positive role models. “Before I met Ken, I think I was falling into the stereotype of ‘a kid from a bad home’ with the activities I was involved in and the ones I wasn’t,” Jasmine confirms. “But Ken saw something in me that I didn’t see in myself.” 

      Jasmine had never really enjoyed playing basketball before, but something clicked when she began playing with Ken and the kids at the Club, which is when Ken saw her start to come out of her shell. She made new friends and built confidence. Soon it was clear Jasmine had not only ability on the court, but also an instinctive drive that gave her a powerful competitive edge. That became evident right after she played in her first game. “The other girls had already been playing for a couple of years, and I thought I played so badly in comparison,” she remembers. “It inspired me to get better, so I wouldn’t ever have that feeling of being inferior to anyone.” 

      Ken began spending his weekends working with his protege on the court as well as looking for a venue that would give Jasmine exposure to college coaches. With her improved focus playing out in the classroom as well, he saw that her grade-point average coupled with her basketball abilities made a college scholarship a real possibility. 

      Though he hadn’t planned on coaching girls’ basketball—his experience was in coaching football—he created the Each One Teach One (EOTO) AAU basketball team built around Jasmine and designed to travel the region and play in high-profile tournaments. From the start, Jasmine was one of the first to arrive at practice and the last to leave, her dogged determination taking on a life of its own.

      Before long the EOTO team was winning tournaments, and by the end of Jasmine’s junior year in the spring of 2011, word of her talent was spreading throughout Hall County and beyond. “Jasmine Jenkins leads the EOTO offense like General Patton,” one sportswriter quipped. She hit ESPN’s top 100 rankings of players in the class of 2012. (She ranked 86th in the country.)

      Coaches were also taking notice. “We became the first team in Hall County to ever play in front of 100-plus college coaches,” Ken says. “Once they saw Jasmine, they were saying, ‘Wow, we’ve got to have her.’ I was getting calls from Vanderbilt, Auburn, Georgia Tech, Syracuse...20 times a day, every day.”

      In the fall of 2011, Jasmine made a verbal commitment to play for Vanderbilt University, where she is studying sports medicine. She says she’s looking forward to a fresh start. Although she has headed off to college, Jasmine has already made a lasting impact in Hall County. Ken plans to continue coaching girls’ basketball and building on the new relationships he has forged with college coaches and tournament directors. The EOTO league now fields teams for every age group, with more than 250 girls participating that come from the Boys and Girls Clubs of Hall County basketball league. “A lot of Jasmine’s hard work has rubbed off, and you can tell the attention that she has brought to girls’ basketball,” he says. “She has done a lot for me, for her teammates, and for her community. I feel like a proud papa.”

      Jasmine has also volunteered many hours practicing with the younger kids and trying to be the kind of mentor, on and off the court, that Ken has been for her. “I reiterate to the kids whenever I can, don’t make your challenges into excuses. I want them to look to me and say, ‘Jasmine went to college, so I can, too.’”

      • Jasmine has an incredible story and one that bears repeating. She learned to take the obstacles in her life and learn from them. The meeting between Ken and her was meant to be, through the grace of God. I am glad to read that not only is she in college, but also she is actively involved in the lives of others who may also face the same challenges that she did growing up. Our pastor says, "That your attitude determines your altitude." Jasmine really does prove this.

      • Thank you Ken for taking the time to be a positive mentor and role model, and Jasmine I'm so proud of you. I would say what both of you are doing represents Love, and God is Love!

      Zakaya Wright is part of a bright future for EOTO. Watch for her and her teammates to make steps forward in years to come.

      Coach Ken Huffman has guided EOTO into a program that develop players and gives them the exposure that they need. In the six years that his organization has been together, his teams have become a fixture at Peach State Basketball events. The standard that his organization has created continues to attract some of the top talent from North Georgia and beyond.

      By: @JLHemingwayPSB

      Since it’s inception, EOTO boasts of two of the best individual success stories in that time. Huffman helped develop point guard Jasmine Jenkins of Gainesville, Ga., who is headed into her Junior season at Vanderbilt University this year. He also coached wing forward Morgan Jackson of Gainesville, Ga., who also is going into her Junior year at Georgia State University. Huffman helped provide the platform for both of these young ladies to show that they could compete at the highest levels in the sport.

      Corey Staples – 2015

       

      Program Notes from Ken Huffman:

      The EOTO organization put together two teams that traveled on the exposure circuit to play in front of hundreds of coaches during the months of April and July. This is consistent with Huffman’s vision, as he says “Our goal is to simply give kids an opportunity to play travel ball, regardless of their potential collegiate level.”

      One of the more satisfying aspects of Huffman’s job is to help girls understand that they can be recruited. Huffman says, “We take many of these girls from playing YBOA basketball to playing at a higher level. Most had no idea that a college coach would be interested in them, much less be talked about as a potential player.”

      Although coach Huffman has had past success in helping players elevate their play, each year brings its own unique set of challenges. Huffman mentions numerous players who started off playing timid, but then are able to persevere and reach new heights. In his words, “The most satisfying part of all of this is watching how the kids respond on the court.”

       

      The Program: 

      Watching how players progress from one year to the next is always an exciting story line to follow. No player better demonstrates how adversity can propel a player to greater heights than Corey Staples of Buford, Ga.  She finished her third year with the EOTO program on a high note after suffering injuries in every summer leading up this one. However, these setbacks did not prevent her from having the confidence to finish strong. Staples who has long been a player of potential began to transition into a player of production and Marshall University recognized that by offering her a scholarship. As Huffman says, “I was proud to see Corey overcome injuries and personal doublt to earn her first offer this summer.”

      Other players who stepped in big moments this year were class of 2015 forward Ashley Parker and class of 2016 swing forward Karlie Bearden and both of Dawsonville, Ga. Parker gave her verbal commitment to North Georgia before the month of July began. Her reputation as a shooter earned her a spot on the roster for the Lady Nighthawks in years to come. The 5-11 Bearden is a player of skill who has also gained interest from North Georgia as well as several other schools in the region.

      Other individuals who have come on late for Huffman’s squad have been class of 2016 forward Breanna Locke of Flowery Branch, Ga., and class of 2017 prospects Pamela Johnson of Buford, Ga., and Endia Banks of Duluth, Ga. All of these players had their moments this summer where they stepped up in critical situations. Huffman looks for these players to carry the torch in years to come for EOTO.

      The Future

      EOTO made it a point to travel with two teams this summer to have multiple prospects ready for future competition. As he said, “I am very excited about the progress that our Green team made this summer. I always liked working with them during practice, but I look forward to coaching them more in the games next year.”

      Coach Pamela Johnson took the leadership role for this team this year and helped guide several promising players in the right direction. Continue to watch the development of class of 2016 guard Maddie Hetzel of Flowery Branch, Ga., who Huffman calls a “gym rat.” Also class of 2017 guard Hannah Grogan of Gainesville, Ga., is a player that is making strides. She has been a part of the EOTO organization since she was in fourth grade.

      Huffman also mentioned younger players such as class of 2017 forward Zakaya Wright of Buford, Ga., who uses energy and hustle to be productive. He also speaks highly of point guard Lexie Xsengkhammee of Braselton, Ga., who’s love of the game is evident every time she steps on to the floor.

      Primarily operating in the North Georgia area, Ken Huffman has developed numerous college prospects since 2007. His E.O.T.O teams are known for having skilled individuals who work well within a team concept. Two of the more notable players that Huffman had a hand in helping are Jasmine Jenkins of Oakwood, Ga., who is entering her sophomore year at Vanderbilt University. Also, Morgan Jackson of Gillsville, Ga., just finished her first year Georgia State also played for E.OT.O for several years. Both players contributed significant minutes as freshman at their respective schools, which speaks highly of the training that Huffman provided.

One of the more promising players for Coach Huffman this year is 5–foot–11 forward Karlie Bearden of Dawsonville, Ga. The skilled forward can knock down the open jumper and is a developing ball handler. Alongside of Bearden is 5-8 guard Corey Staples of Buford, Ga. The athletic wing is known most for her active presence on the court. Her developing perimeter skills make her a player who will not be an under the radar prospect for long.

      ProspectsNation.com National Evaluator Stephen Peck says that “E.O.T.O. is a quality program with quality individuals from top to bottom. Coach Huffman sets the tone by helping these young ladies reach their goals yearly.” Check ProspectsNation.com next week for updates on E.O.T.O. and all of your favorite girls basketball players.

      EOTO-VA Finishes Top 10 at USBA Nationals

      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..

      EOTO-VA (10th) Grabs 2nd at USBA Elite Memorial Day Classic

      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!

      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!

      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!
