Basketball Wall Street: Standout Freshman Julz Kost, Playing Well at Williston Northampton School-(MA)

Julz Kost is just a freshman at Williston Northhampton School in Easthampton, Ma. but her impact on the girl’s varsity basketball team has been significant. The 5-foot-8 guard is an accurate perimeter shooter who has improved her ball handling and passing abilities. The versatile combo guard is the consummate team player with good court sense and a high basketball IQ. “She is a very good player, moves the ball well and has excellent court vision” said Amber Rodgers, the head coach of the Williston Northhampton girl’s basketball team. The LaGrangeville, New York native has been an integral part of her teams 5-1 record in the competitive New England Private School Athletic Conference, better know as the NEPSAC. She has performed well in wins against the King’swood Oxford School, Ct., St Mark’s School, Ma., Brooks School, Ma., Hopkins School Ct., and the Buckingham Browne&Nichols School, Ma.  Kost’s, Athletic bloodlines and competitive nature comes from her father, Steve Kost, who was a division one baseball player and a former Major League Baseball prospect. And, from her cousin Bobby Sura, who was a star basketball player at Florida State University and was a first round pick in the N.B.A draft.

While it is still early in her development as a prospect, Kost has performed well enough to have received an official offer from Towson University, coached by women’s basketball legend Diane Richardson. “I definitely see her competing at a mid-major or high-level Division 1 (school).  “It’s tough to determine what exactly they’ll be when they’re so young, but she definitely has the talent to get there. Looking at how early the recruiting process starts, and already having Towson extend an offer even before she starts high school, that speaks to the potential everyone thinks she has.” Said coach Rodgers, who is a St Lawrence University alumnae, and is in her second season as the varsity girl’s basketball head coach at Williston.

Several high academic, division one women’s basketball collegiate programs have been recruiting Kost because she puts forth a strong emphasis on academic achievement. Challenging herself in the classroom taking on a rigorous academic slate including courses like: physics, world civilization, algebra, English and Spanish. Julz Kost is off to an impressive start, and is on the brink of a special freshman season, look for her and the Williston Northampton School girl’s basketball team to have a great and memorable 2017-18 season in the NEPSAC and beyond.

Saylor Poffenbarger is not your ordinary high school freshman at Middletown High School, Md.  She is an elite level guard prospect in the graduating class of 2021, and a starter on the MHS varsity basketball team. At 6-foot-1, her combination of size, and a polished skill-set  makes her a top tier collegiate recruit. Poffenbarger, showed what she can do in her first high school game pouring in 20 points while pulling down 14 rebounds in a contested 64-57 win over Frederick High School, Md., with the likes of the University of Maryland Women’s Basketball head coach Brenda Frese on hand as a spectator in from College Park, Md. “I am never satisfied with being average, I work very hard in the classroom and on the basketball court.” “Rebounding is not a technique, its all heart, its who’s going to go up and get it.” Said the standout freshman, who is the daughter of Amy Poffenbarger, who was a star basketball player at the University of Missouri that once recorded a triple-double in a game. Nevertheless, Saylor understands at a young age that nothing will be handed to her. It will take hard work, focus and dedication to be the best player she can be. “I’m expected to score, I’m expected to play defense, I’m expected to create energy.”

Poffenbarger, is blessed to have her mother coaching her in high school and coach Larry Gary on the travel club circuit with the Germantown Lady Panthers program. . “Saylor has the size, length, athleticism and skill set to do it all. She is a high major, BCS level recruit, a five tool player as they say in baseball” said Larry Gary. “I have many influences in my life, my mom started me young. I always attended her practices and she would constantly have the ball in my hands. Also, coach Engle who suddenly passed away in 2016 was an influence on my life in general. He always was willing to workout and full of advice about life on and off the court. Most recently I have been coached by Larry Gray who has taken my game to the next level.” While still early in her development as a prospect, she is a fluid shooter with solid form and follow through. Her athleticism and motor enables her to be a strong rebounder and defender. “I am an accurate shooter from the outside, I am also able to get past my defender and finish at the rim.” “My goals for the upcoming season are to create a strong team attitude, win our conference and then win the state championship. My personal goals are to be the best teammate I can be and be nominated for player of the year.” Saylor Poffenbarger and the Middletown H.S. Knights Girls Basketball team is off to a great start, look for them to have a special 2017-18 season under the tutelage of coach Amy Poffenbarger.

By Silverio Ford

The iExcel basketball travel club is stronger than ever, achieving great success in terms of players going on to the collegiate level, and the aspect of top tier prospect development. Program director Walter Welsh started coaching women’s basketball around 1991 after coaching men’s basketball at the famous Joseph Miccio Center in Redhook, and throughout the borough of Brooklyn in New York City. In this time, Welsh was influenced by local coaches like Gil Reynolds of the Brooklyn Vangards and the Brownsville Jets. And, Rodney Parker, who was a very influential figure in NYC basketball most notably as the brains behind the widely acclaimed book “Heaven is a Playground” about inner city basketball at the legendary Foster Park in Flatbush.

unnamed

Former player and fellow Brooklynite Caritas Henry talked Welsh into coming over to the women’s side of coaching while at Martin Luther King High School. Welsh decided to give it a try and he has been very successful ever since, spanning three decades of quality and excellence in coaching. “Over the years, I’ve told my players, it’s Caritas who has been directly and indirectly responsible for our journeys together.” “Brooklyn people are not afraid to get want they want, its a cultural thing that allows you to feel that all things are possible and I can accomplish everything I want because I am built for it. You learn to not care about things so many people are concerned about.” Welsh conveys that old-school sensibility and structure in his coaching and it resonates well with his players.

Maddie Plank is a young lady that has emerged as a top level basketball prospect at Briarcliff High School. Plank is an elite level point-guard with a great feel for the game and excellent court vision. With enviable size at 5-foot-11, the Briarcliff Manor N.Y. native is elusive off the dribble and instinctive with the ball in her hands being able to facilitate shots for her teammates or, to create for herself as a polished shot-maker with finesse.  Plank is a south-paw player but her ambidextrous approach and skill-set allows her to create separation off the dribble at a high rate. “Growing up, I played baseball, lacrosse, soccer, and basketball year round. So playing sports was always a large part of my life. I have 3 brothers and we are all super competitive and that made me work really hard in every sport I was pursuing. My high school coach , Don Hamlin was the one who introduced me to basketball and taught me the basics. He has been my coach since 3rd grade and has been there for me through everything. Finally, my dad played a role in making me the player I am today. He always said that you could never know how tall you are going to be so having ball handling skills is necessary. I have been dribbling ever since.”

Plank enjoys studying subjects like chemistry and pre-calculus, and has made significant progress as a student with a 4.0 grade-point-average at the academically rigorous and competitive Briarcliff High School which is ranked as the 28th best public high school in New York State by U.S. News & World Reports. The schools’ AP (Advanced Placement) programs prepare students to transition to high level collegiate academics. “Our school is super rigorous and competitive, the pressures in school has made me an extremely well-rounded and focused student. Every minute is important when you have to study for a very difficult test and still have time for practice.” Planks’ very high academic prowess coupled with her elite level of play on the court makes her one of the most heavily recruited prospects in the class of 2019. Atlantic Coast, Big Ten, Big East, Big 12, Pac 10, Ivy and Patriot league schools have all offered her scholarships. She is excited to start her junior season and enjoys being coached by Don Hamlin. Hamlin is a class personified coach and educator with a history of excellence in Westchester County.

“For the upcoming high school season our goal is to win a state championship. We are a year older, a year stronger, and a year tougher. Our starting line-up has been working all off season to improve and be a huge threat this season. I would like to be the best leader for our young team. Also, I would love to average a triple-double and given our fast pace, I think it is possible. As for AAU, of course we want to be the best team in the Nike Elite Youth Basketball League. Our team is really athletic and even though I don’t know them really well yet, I think we will have great chemistry. Personally, I want to improve and grow as a player while playing on the circuit. I am trying to become the best player I can be and strive to be one of the best guards in the EYBL.” Maddie Plank is a focused, dedicated and mature student-athlete with an incredibly bright future. Look for her and Briarcliff High School girls basketball team to have a great 2017-18 season.

Rising junior Kaelynn Satterfield is a standout prospect that is eager to lead her Christ the King H.S.-(Middle Village, N.Y.) basketball team to a strong season. The 6-foot-1 Bronx native is a versatile player with a multifaceted skill-set. She is a guard prospect that can impact a game by rebounding, defending and scoring from the perimeter or in the paint. Her ball-handling and passing skills are at an elite level to go along with her personality as a strong leader.  “I traveled a lot when I was younger due to my father being on the road. I was born in Manhattan, but grew up in both Manhattan and the Bronx, its pretty cool getting recognition from people in both boroughs.” “As a player I offer a lot because I’m so versatile being able to play a number of different positions.”

Growing up in New York City is a challenging real-world experience and education in and of itself, diversity is something New Yorkers embrace and live with on a daily basis. It requires an insurmountable amount of focus and dedication to come out of the city as a successful student-athlete and Satterfield is right on track balancing both very well sporting a 3.5 grade-point-average in the classroom. She is proud of her Puerto Rican heritage and all of the rich culture that comes along with it. Kaelynn is also sensitive to the death and damages done by the recent hurricane Maria disaster in Puerto Rico. “I like a couple of things about my Puerto Rican side of the family, I mean obviously you have to love the food because its just the absolute best. But I just love the island its truly beautiful. But right now my family is going through a lot due to the damages have done to my great grand fathers home. I am keeping all the families that were affected by it in my prayers.”

If the name Satterfield sounds familiar it is because Kaelynn is the daughter of former N.B.A player and New York City basketball legend Kenny Satterfield. With strong bloodlines and intangibles as a player, she has proven herself as a top prospect in the class of 2019 playing against the highest level of AAU competition in the Nike Elite Youth Basketball League with the New Jersey Sparks travel club. “She is one of the best all around players in the country. She has no limit to her all around game. She can pass, shoot, rebound, post-up, and break you down off the dribble. At 6’1″ there is not too many players in the country that can do what she does.” Says New Jersey Sparks coach Keith Gilchrist. At this point, she holds legitimate scholarship offers from Atlantic Coast, Big East and Big Ten conference schools just to name a few.  “A couple of different colleges are recruiting me but my main focus right now is staying on top of my grades and preparing for the season.” Satterfield averaged 17.3-PPG and 6.2-RPG last season but the points and stats mean nothing to her without winning a Catholic High School Athletic Association Championship. Look for her to have a great showing this 2017-18 season. “This season at Christ the King I am going to make sure my team wins it all. I want a ring or two before I graduate.”
