Taylor Shoemake, a junior at Bruce High School, recently participated in the Red Bull King of the Rock basketball tournament in New Orleans, Louisiana. He went with his former coach Forrest Daws.
Taylor finished with an unofficial top ten ranking after competing against around 80 participants. He finished just two wins away from the finals.
“I was very proud of Taylor,” Daws said. “He made some mistakes and certainly could have advanced to the final four, but I felt as though for his first tournament of this kind, he performed very well. I am pleased with the progress he has made over the last two years.”
It also worthy of mentioning that the final two participants had both played professional basketball overseas and Taylor was also the youngest player in the tournament.
