New video of my son! Chavis Harris Career Highlights

Here's a new video of my son, Chavis, made by Francis Philip Waife.  Philip has played with Chavis and he his one of Chavis' older friends.  Philip was kind enough to do this video for me.  You'll see his webstie at the end of the video, so please check him and his work.  He does paintings also.  You can see some more of his work on youtube.  

The video starts of with me giving a speech to Lee District and my Mount Vernon Heat 12 & under after our championship loss in the Fairfax County Summer League.  Some of the Chavis' youth and high school games are on display.  Chavis' numbers were #1, #10 Mount Vernon freshman #12 Robert E. Lee sophomore.  Here's the video. Enjoy!

38th Annual 2011 Capital Classic

Future Hoyas' #3 Mikael Hopkins and #23 Greg Whittington speak with media after Capital Classic game

Hoyanation and friends it has been a minute.  First and foremost I would like to the founder of the Capital Classic Bob Geoghan and Five-Star Camp founder, Howard Garfinkel.  

The Capital Classic is the longest-running high school basketball All-Star game in the United States. After its early success putting the top players in the Washington, DC area against the top players in the country, it spawned the McDonald’s All-American Game in 1978.

Since 1974, the Capital Classic has been a beacon in the Washington, DC community, showcasing some of the nation’s top high school basketball talent. The game has become a steppingstone for many college All-Americans, NBA All-Stars and Pro Basketball Hall of Fame recipients, such as Moses Malone, Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, Patrick Ewing, Grant Hill, Carmelo Anthony, LeBron James, Chris Paul and Dwight Howard.

For this year's Capital Classic the Georgetown Hoyas had two Hoya bound players Oakland Mill's Greg Whittington and DeMatha's Mikael Hopkins.
