When planning our events, we really look to provide a platform for kids that may not necessarily have the stage to be seen elsewhere. When targeting teams to play in our Phenom Summer Jam: High School Team Camp we had some players in mind that we wanted to get on a regional and national stage, and help kick start their recruitment. Northeastern High School was at the top of that list.

The future is very bright for Northeastern High School. Tucked away in the furthest northeast part of North Carolina, the school (and area) is a usual hotbed for athletes. However, many times these athletes can go unnoticed due to the cities location.

Northeastern High School has an enrollment that hoovers around 850 and carries alumni that have been in the NBA, NFL, and several D1 athletic programs. This year’s team has the players and the bloodlines to go very far.

Last year Northeastern High School ran through their conference with a 9-2 record and dropped a heart breaking loss in the 3rd round of the 2A NCHSAA playoffs to Northside HS. This year’s team only loses one (1) player from last year’s top twelve (12) and is hungry to make a run.

However, the cupboard is most certainly not bare in Elizabeth City. This year’s team will be led by rising 6’5” Senior Trey Carver. Carver left last year to attend Genesis Academy in Lynchburg, Va. While at Genesis, Carver picked up five (5) offers, from the likes of East Tennessee State, Hofstra, and Southern Miss.

Carver is a thickly built power wing, tipping the scales at a strong 225 pounds. Carver’s father, Anthony, is an all-time great player at Old Dominion and his brother Aaron is currently a freshman at Old Dominion. Carver is a great shooter, and a very vocal perimeter defender. During conference play, Carver averaged 18.5 points and 7.5 boards per game. He is a player to watch, as he is flying under the radar as a D1 prospect.

6’3” Da’Mar Sutton is one of the Top 15 players in North Carolina’s 2018 class. He started the year off hot last year averaging 10 points and 9 boards before he suffered a leg injury that kept him out the rest of the year. There is a lot to like with this one’s skill set as he also averaged a versatile 2 steals and 2 assists per game. The coaches at Boo Williams AAU program continually rave about the kid.

Shawn Walker Jr. is another player to watch on this team. Only a rising freshman, Walker is the son of Grambling Head Coach Shawn Walker. Walker is lengthy, smooth, and very skilled. He is a player to go ahead and store away on your SIM card.

This team also returns quick 6’ 2016 guard Trevon Lamb who averaged 10 points and 1.5 steals per game, 6’4” 2017 forward Tyleik Overton who was 4th on the team in rebounds and 2nd in blocked shots, and 2016 Raheem Nixon who averaged a consistent 8 points per game.

This team has players and depth. They are looking to have a full year with all their guys, and are playing hungry. This team deserves this stage, and expect their recruitment and notoriety to pick up after this event.
