Max have you paid back the $12,800.00 that you borrow last year from the shootout? Your trucks were been repo and you were going to pay that money back in 2 weeks.Maybe thats why you broke up with the other side of the shootout staff when they try to collect. You know Max that was the easiest way to get out of paying that money back so what do you do you start a fight. Very smart Max, do you know that thier is a check for that amount on someones hands that you cash. What a CROOK and trying to put the blame on someone other then yourself. You have all of those people around you fool you little fat boy your nothing but thief.

My Daugther played at the shootout tournament when I found out that the Border tournament had all of those Jr. Coches and D-2 Coaches looking at they,re girls teams I knew we were playing in the wrong tournament. I found out that the coaches had a meeting with the girls from the Border tournament. I went to Camino Real with my daughter I was met by a very pleasant older man, I ask permission to be in the meeting he said that the meeting was for all girls no matter where the girls played. The next 2 hours were great especially the coach from St.Marys University in San Antonio and the coaches from Frank Phip JC and Hillsboro Jc. I have no idea what this crying is all about my daughter got to play and we met with 5 collage coches that we would have never had the opportunity to meet and talk to. By the way i'm sending info to three coaches that I met with that night thank god for that tournament and the connections they have. If my daugther gets some help the Border Tournament paid off for us and we didnt even played in it. Oh yes and about seventy parents and players that attended the meeting got free t-shirts. I say that was a deal I'm sending that pleasant man and the Border Tournament a big hug. Thank You Happy Mom...

I am not gonna talk about the Vicencios or R. Daniels. I do not know their intents, I do know that they do alot for the young ballers of elp. The programs are never free and they demand a great deal of time and effort. The young ball players here in elp. are burden. They are burden with stereotypes, such as people who have a personal vendetta with a person or what the person stands for. Please stand and be an adult and tell that person; but don't take it out on the whole basketball community and call it a joke. I have witnessed some outstanding athletes come out of this city of elp and went on to be D1, D2, NAIA or etc.... Yes! they were and became productive ball players for good teams. Why should someone care about how they got to the school or college of their choice. There is a great deal of talent here in elp. I have been around basketball for two life times and I leaned my game growing up on the east coast. I've served over 20 years in the military and have traveled all over this world.There is ball players in elp and very good ones.

Gotta love El Paso. Can't even have a tournament without the bickering. Since some of you bloggers know so much, run your own tournament. As always, those of us who are actually involved with the kids will be trying to find ways to get out of here.
I agree that the bickering here in el paso is crazy. It is very funny that these clowns can point fingers at Ricky Daniels but they creep their low-life asses in the corners of the gyms doing nothing but complaining. I wish they would shut the hell up.

Paying $8 is not bad! I Pay 10 a day in Vegas and dallas for youth basketball tournaments. I thought it was fare price to charge for a basketball tournament of this caliber. People are use to paying very little for big events. Kids got free T-Shirts! I thank them for that. I paid for 4 adults everyday which was 96.00 and I am not complaining. The level of talent was great. I enjoyed watching the 8u to High Schools Divisions. How many times do you get to see the College Coaches in El Paso recruiting our girls and boys. I have been supporting Im Big On Sports for a long time and I like what they do. They had Kansas University in Town last year recruiting our guys. Couple of weeks ago they had a former Kentucky Assistant Coach training 25 el paso kids. Im Big On Sports has gave adidas phenom camp invites to our kids, get our kids ranked in the states top 100, bring college coaches and former NBA Coaches to El Paso for our kids. My kids are playing basketball to hopefully pay for their education in college.
I too support ImBigOnSports! They do a great job!!
