With over 20,000 collective followers on our team’s social media outlets, we’re in a unique position to assist with both creating awareness of a prospect’s skill set and recent on-floor performance. From crisp recruiting updates to updated in-season stats to a potential last-minute change in schedule that needs to be conveyed socially, this package allows the player to control the information available to the public about their game.
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.

“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.”
“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.”

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.
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.
Coach Byron Gillespie and his 10th Grade ran through the competition at the Nola Super 60 taking home the Trophy.
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?
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.
