Best memories playing with the Middlesex Magic

My favorite memory from my time with the Magic was playing in the Long Island Shootout in 1996. I was a freshman in high school and the Magic program was in its infancy. Our trip to New York included a stay in Manhattan, a tour of the Statute of Liberty, and dinner at the Rainbow Room. This was my first out-of-state tournament and was a growing experience for both myself and my teammates.

How the Middlesex Magic helped you the most

The Middlesex Magic program helped me become a better person both on and off the court. Coach Crotty, Sr. preached the importance of playing hard and having fun while constantly stressing the importance of academics. He focused on the development of well-rounded, motivated individuals and encouraged us to pursue our goals. His influence is a major reason why I went on to play competitively in college.
