Charlie Large of Coal Grove Middle School and Tanner Holden of Wheelersburg Middle School were chosen to play in the Buckeye Prep Report Showcase All-Star Game last September.

The Showcase invites more than 150 players from 14 states. Large and Holden were named to the Showcase’s top 40 players list and played on the same team in the all-star game.

The duo played on the winning team and Holden received top five honors in the game. The two players are members pf the Riverside Flyers AAU team sponsored by Joe Lambiotte of Riverside Physical Therapy in South Point and Proctorville.

The team has been ranked as high as sixth in the nation.

Large was also picked last August to compete in the Adidas Phenom camp in San Diego with more than 350 junior high players from across the country. He was ranked No. 32 overall and No.7 at his position by Hoopscout.

Large and Holden were also named to the top 30 player list by Buckeye Prep Magazine.
