All-Ohio 2019: Big Red Machine Has the Country Seeing Red - AGAIN!!!!

Top teams and programs in the country don’t rebuild they retool; rumors of the demise the 2019 All-Ohio Red have been grossly over stated.  Not only is AOR 2019 still in the game, the strong is getting stronger for the upcoming 2015 season.

Coming off of back-to-back NYBL Champions in the toughest and most respected middle school league in the country as well as a 3rd place finish at Nationals AOR 2019 has a resume and body of work that is respected by anyone and everyone on the national circuit.  

Jeremiah Francis #7 in Country
All-Ohio Red and their collection of talent who has grown accustomed to winning at a high level  will be lead again this year by All-World National Ranked PG Jeremiah Francis (#7) who has expanded his already potent game by adding another gear and bigtime offensive prowess that includes added speed, scoring range, and consistency to the stroke and mechanics.  Francis who has long displayed elite level court vision must be accounted for with the ball in his hands as a scorer now; which the unselfish lead guard will only use to his advantage in finding his talented teammates in the spots where they are the most effective.  Teammates such as Demarco Bradley, Andre Gordan, Amari Davis, Chris’Seon Springer, and Gerald Reynolds were also bigtime contributors to last year’s team.

Player departures and acquisitions of course always affect the landscape and its looks like Red isn’t standing pat as they have made two major moves this off-season landing 6’7 Combo Forward Taylor Currie and Combo Guard 6’1 Marcus Curtis.  

Taylor Currie
Taylor Currie who previously played for Spiece Next Level of out Fort Wayne has relocated to Westerville, Ohio and fallen right into the capable hands of Coach Bradley and Coach Francis.  Currie who will man the frontline for AOR, has dramatically improved his scoring range and scoring package – exemplifying his improvement is his current averages of 22ppg, 8rbs, & 5 bpg so far this year, showing he is more than capable of being a bigtime contributor to the Red’s success this season.  Taylor is looking forward to the opportunity to play up against elite level competition with AOR’s rigorous national schedule and will be focusing with the assistance of the coaching staff on further developing his face-up game and putting the ball on the floor from the wing.  If prior performance is any indication of future prestige - than we expect Currie to be getting the job done on a very high level very soon with Bradley and Francis on the scene.

Marcus Curtis
That’s not all folks; enter Marcus Curtis who will push both Jeremiah and Demarco in the backcourt; the 6’1 combo guard is in the building joining Red after competing with OBC Adidas Elite last year.  For Curtis joining AOR has been a long time goal and he doesn’t plan to play around with the opportunity.  Curtis who fell in love with head man Coach Bradley upon meeting up at the NIKE City Series already feels a part of the AOR family and can’t wait to display his skill set on the circuit.  Currently in Ohio Curtis is pumping in 25ppg each time out combined with 5asp and 6rpg.  He attributes his elite scoring ability to the last years development of a “killer instinct” – a take no prisoners approach that forces defenses to respect and account for him each and every possession.  Marcus who is focused on preparing for the next level looks forward to expanding his over all game; handle, court vision, pace while playing within the “Swiss army knife” like system of AOR; where many high level players have excelled.

For those hoping that they wouldn’t have to deal with All-Ohio Reds talented personnel grouping, intense defensive pressure, and high level coaching staff; they look to be back and stronger than ever.  We apologize in advance for any L’s you may have to take on account of the Big Red Machine as this group is used to winning and simply wouldn’t put a product out that they didn’t expect to do so at a very high level.
