Coach George won the Camden City Middle School Basketball Championship for the third year in a row. For the past three seasons, Coach George's teams have gone undefeated. This year, his team also won the MLK Peace Games Tournament at the Kroc Center in Camden, NJ and the Camden City Holiday Tournament. Off the court, Coach George is a positive role model for his players. He always pushes academics and something he is most proud of, more than winning championships, is that a majority of his students are always on honor roll. He constantly checks in on them and does mandatory homework club for them on days they are not practicing.
