East Coast Guard Has Success In July

Reporter Mike Sullivan takes a look at the summer of a guard on the East Coast by the name of Joey Gripper, who competed for Team Phenom during the July evaluation period ...

Joey Gripper, a 6-foot-1, 165-pound point guard from Abington Friends High School in Jenkintown, Penn., had a successful July evaluation period, helping him gain some division one interest in his skill level.

Gripper recently had some interest from Northeastern. Davidson had been showing some love too over the past few weeks.

Joey played with the 16 and under Team Phenom AAU team based out of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He averaged 12 points, seven assists and three steals for the July evaluation period.

There was some talk by the family that Joey would take an unofficial visit to Davidson. Head coach Bob McKillop is one of the best teachers in the game of college basketball.
