A Look Back on 2016 from Tim Marshall

The Blazers Exposure program completed another highly competitive season. Their oldest group competed and won some of the nation’s top tournaments in the past season. The centerpiece of this season’s group was Alabama verbal Ariyah Copeland of Columbus, Ga. Here is what JumpOffPlus.com evaluators had to say about Copeland this year:

Copeland looked terrific in the second summer after her second knee injury. Her greatest attribute is her ability to score around the rim. She has strong hands and good court awareness. She is a rebounder in her area, but will never be a kid that can jump out of the gym. She uses her body effectively to gain positioning around the block area. – April 2016

Returning along with Copeland in the 2017 class was Tiyah and Teyah Johnson of Phenix City, Ala., who have picked up a couple of offers while playing with the Blazers. Ashlee Free is a longtime Blazers player who will return next year as a 2018 prospect.

Coach Marshall also had high praise for the new additions to the program. Timi’a Swanson is a 2017 wing who verbally committed to Alabama State. He also mentioned the 2018 newcomers, which have a lot of promise. Dai Dai Almond of Peach County will be the program’s top returner next season. She is a 4-star prospect per the JumpOffPlus.com and already has raked in a number of offers. Diamond Hall and Zanautica Downs of Colquitt County also finished solid seasons with the Blazers.

Coach Marshall made special mention of Class of 2018 prospects Asia Harrison (Valdosta) Trinity Vasquez (Columbus) and Shaudai Chandler (Northside-Columbus). He also made mention of the underclassmen, which are just beginning to scratch the surface of their potential.

Brandon Clay’s Take on the Blazers Exposure Program

“Tim Marshall has guided the Blazers Exposure program with a steady hand since I met him in 2004. He’s built a brand based on exposure, loyalty and skill development. In the process, Marshall has developed one of the country’s premier independent programs in a non-metropolitan area. The alumni list is both impressive and impactful in the community. Former players are back in the fold with college degrees ready to empower the next set of rising student-athletes. Marshall’s Blazers Exposure program embodies more than just basketball players. It teaches how to make the transition into building a career once the ball stops bouncing. For that, we are extremely proud to have them as a part of the PSBFamily movement.”

Tim Marshall on the Benefits of being a Part of the #PSBFamily 

“Blazers Exposure has been involved from the beginning. We’ve enjoyed the professional growth of the PSB organization and it’s leader Brandon Clay. I’ve recommended PSB events to other travel programs and they’ve all been impressed. Brandon’s genuine interest in our players and ready willingness to facilitate a connection with a coach speaks volumes. His honesty ,integrity, character and credibility are beyond reproach. Our program continues to benefit from our affiliation with Peach State Basketball.”
