Greg Kelser talks at Basketball Showcase in TC

Posted: Updated:

A little under one hundred prep basketball players met up at Traverse City West High School today for the Northern Michigan Prep Basketball Showcase.

It is run by Childress Sports Consulting, who also organized the football combine at Thirlby Field last summer.

It allows Northern Michigan athletes to show off their skils to college representatives while learning a little bit about what it takes to get to the next level and what to expect once they get there.

Greg Kelser was the featured speaker. He won a National Title with MSU in 1979, played for the Detroit Pistons, and is currently their TV Analyst.  His message goes beyond college sports.
