Northeast Senior Guard Has Solid Season

Reporter Mike Sullivan provides a look at the individual game of Northeast guard prospect Kyle Callahan, who has competed previously for the Albany City Rocks ...

Kyle Callanan, a 6-foot-2, 185-pound guard prospect, had a terrific senior season, according to his AAU coach, Jim Hart of the Albany City Rocks.

Earlier this season, Kyle vaulted to to the top of the Mt. Anthony's all-time leading scorer list. Callanan continued his mid season momentum with a game of 28 points, including seven three-pointers, and handing out eight assists.

Kyle, who was a McDonald's All American nominee for his state, has always been a favorite of Hart for several reasons as detailed below.

WHAT JIM HART SAYS ABOUT KYLE CALLAHAN'S INDIVIDUAL GAME:

"Kyle redefines the combo guard in that he can be a pure point OR a pure two at the next level.

What he lacks in athleticism, he more than makes up for with an ultra tight handle, great court vision and the ability to hit NBA range three's with great consistency.

"Kyle has excelled against the best competition in the country during the summers, but is still a relative unknown.

"Kyle is a leader for Mr. Basketball honors in his state and is the consummate team player. He will no doubt succeed at the low-mid division one level with his vast skill set. "He does whatever he can to help our team win. He is a smart player, a hard worker who knows the importance of taking care of the basketball and making good decisions with each possession."
