Went to 3rd grade tournament in London and Casey Co apparently didn't think their legitament 3rd grade team was good enough to win. Had to play a 4th grader who is 10 in the 3rd grade league even though their was a 4th grade league if they wanted to enter their 4th grade team. Pretty pathetic that they have to cheat little kids to win. If a cheap plastic trophy means that much to u all to cheat great job!!!

Yes, they were asked and coach said he was. They made him sit out the rest of that game but he was right back in the next game. The person running the tournament just didn't want to make a stink. Sad that grownups would cheat to win at all cost. Bad thing is they have a really good 3rd grade group that could have played with any team there but guess they wanted a guaranteed win

Our AAU team is a joke and is being run by a sick and selfish father! This is a cancer to the many many kids basketball training future that are not on this team! Shame! Shame! Shame!

these days nothing matters but the W! anything to get it. one time i even heard a couple of little kids plotting how to hurt another kid during a game so they could win when he couldn't play anymore. where do you think they learn this stuff?

Kevin Stephens is the culprit and a known cheater! Many parents have seen the behavior this know-it-all displays and have removed their kids from his teams. Parents that put up with his self-promotion just so their kids can be on his hand-picked team should be very ashamed! I guess the reason they put up with his repulsive know-absolutely-nothing ways is because there is no alternative basketball league in this county. He has absolute control over all the gyms and answers to no one. He is the boss and has total control over the entire school system!

Kevin Stephens holds tournaments at the Casey County Middle School using all local facilities but has Russell County youth baseball people manning ticket sales, concessions and the scoters table just so his own son/sons will be allowed to play on their traveling baseball team. Russell County's Baseball Youth team got one-half the money made and his 3rd grade basketball team got the other half of the proceeds! How much money did anyone in Casey County or the school system get other than the 8 or 9 players (2 of which are his own sons) benefit from the proceeds? What about the many many kids here that would like to and benefit from having the opportunity to play in a youth basketball program/league? This is a huge injustice to our children. Again, Kevin Stephens is a cheater, self-serving, unfair and unscrupulous!

Indeed, he is a cancer in our county to all sports and now looks like it has spread to surrounding counties. Looks like he has hurt parents and players in the London Tournament with his cheating. Obviously the first post is from a parent who has witnessed his cheating first hand just to get a plastic trophy. We feel your pain he will do anything to get a Win for himself its not about the kids at all to him. Sorry, but we are stuck with him in this county. Sorry that you all in London have to be a casualty along the way.

Who allows Kevin Stephens to be a Dictator? This is so demoralizing and unfair to all other same age kids and also, to their parents! Maybe there is no hope here! We have so little here in Casey County.

Why does the Casey County School Superintendent and the School Board allow this to happen? Obviously, they don't care!

Its funny that so many people get on here and bash other people for the things they try to do. In reality any one of you can create a team and play in any tournement or league you desire to. The problem is in Casey County everyone wants to sit back and critize others for what they do but will not do anything themselves to help. As far as the fourth grader is concerned most tournaments are by age and he is able to play on that team because of his age, he is no older than the other kids he is playing against.

The tournament was grade. 2nd,3rd and 4th grade. Our team consist of 8 and 9 year olds. We were told by a Casey Co. parent that the child is 10 and will be 11 in April. That is a big age difference at this age. Some tournaments r by age, this one was not.

The kid was 9 as of August 31 per AAU rules. We called Jeff Shepherd to enter the tourney and we ask him if you could play as a 9u 3rd grade team and he told us that was fine. Jeff knows the kids are legal age because the paperwork was offered to him and he has played us for two years. Most AAU ball is played by age. We did not try and hide anything from anyone, have your coach call Jeff and see if he told us that we could play as a 9U, not our fault.

Which kid were you talking about? We have no kids birthdays in April. We have a kid whose birthday is in march but he will be 8. If your talking about #23 he will be 10 in July.

Jordon--why don't you put your own kid down? I would be ashamed to put a little 9 year old kid down. That shows what kind of person you are and besides if you have kids of your own they are probably too lazy to move or maybe they just move their big mouth like you are doing. If you know so much about the kids why don't you start a team of your own.

It is not hard to figure out the people who are posting as Baller, Basketball Parent, and Jordon.People like them always complain and blame other people for their weak minded attitudes.People in Casey County talk about you if your kid plays well and they talk about you if your kid can't play ball.You can't please them with anything that is done because they don't want to do anything for the kids and they don't want anybody else to work with the kids to make them better in sports. These people have to hide behind their computer to call other people names. Start your own ball team and let other people judge you like you are judging them.

The kid is sancutioned thourgh AAU as a 3rd grader (9U). He is of 3rd grade age. He played as a 2nd grader last year in the 2nd grade state tournament where all ages must be varified.

He is not a selfish father! If he was he wouldn't have them in the gym or at home working with them. The father that is selfish is the one that wants everyone else working with them instead of themselves. Look in the mirror and you will find a selfish person. Anyone can start a basketball team if they want. All it takes is a parent that is willing to work with a group of kids.

All kids should be afforded the opportunity to play/try out for the team instead of the Bigshots kid or a kid with the Galilean Home connection or even the kids with a parent that has some power that can do Kevin Stephens a favor. Also, they always must pass the ball to Kevin's phenomenal (best in the state) son!
