The Classic at Damian: Birmingham Patriots are the Real Deal

Nick Halic has done a tremendous job implementing his style of play, having his kids buy into his philosophy of play.  Image taken at The Classic @ Damian Tourney 2016.

One of the hardest things a coach can do is get his players to buy into what you’re doing as a coaching staff and then turn this into performance on the court.  Nick Halic – Head Coach at Birmingham High School – has done just that.  His kids play a style of basketball similar to that of Chino Hills – showing the prowess and wherewithal on the court that  just may catapult them to their first City title in school history.  With that being said, other teams may want to put them on the radar and send out your scouting personnel. This group of young men play the game at a high level and will definitely cause some issues for teams who aren’t familiar with their style of play.

6’5 Sr. Guard Devante Doutrive is a monster on the court and reeks havoc for opposing teams.  He has flourished under his head coaches’ system.  Image taken at the 2016 Classic Tourney at Damian High.  Not quite sure why this young man hasn’t received major offers from D! schools…are you kidding me??

Birmingham showed up late to the Damian Classic (bus issues) and almost got stunned by Oak Park.  In the end, it was too much athleticism for Oak Park and talented Jr. Forward Riley Battin.  Oak Park held his own but couldn’t do much on the defensive end of the court as Birmingham pulled out the victory by a score of 81-78.    Below are highlights of the ‘Big three’ from Birmingham, who have transferred in and placed the Patriots on the Map Indeed – Deschon, Devonaire, and Devante.

Become great at what you do.

  1. Now doubt those three have come in and changed things in a big way! All three now possess scholarship offers from Arizona State University following the Damien tournament!

    Pro Skills Sports Academy appreciate Popsmedia services for its coverage and commitment to getting maximum exposure to our athletes.

    I’d be interested in doing a sit down with you to talk about Birminghams big three D’s.

    They are all from the PSSA CAMP!
