Two players from the Ballers Heaven junior programme are set to realise their dreams by taking Scholarships in Utah.
Tommie Olubisi and younger brother Timi will be plying their trade at Layton Christian in Utah, that is renowned for being a hot bed for Basketball. This one, two punch has an added flavour and a personal touch to it, as the Olubisi brothers are set to play at the same high school programme.
Ballers Heaven has helped a number of talented players from Europe apply their trade stateside with some gaining NCAA Div 1 Scholarships.
The brothers have been coached by Ballers Heaven for the last few years and their abilities have been showcased to schools in the USA and Canada.
Coach Roger Payne said: “We’re extremely proud of the Olubisi brothers. They have worked extremely hard over the last year and many of our affiliates in the States were interested in them both. But having the chance to play together doesn’t come along very often, especially for an extremely passionate and knowledgeable coach in Bobby Porter in Layton.
“We wish Tommie and Timi all the best as they embark on this new chapter of their lives.”
Over the next year, Ballers Heaven will be showcasing British talent infront of affiliates in Spain and America in the hope that many more will follow in their footsteps, as this programme is set to go from strength to strength.
