Scott’s All-Stars basketball team participated in a community-service project March 27.

The boys heard from a Hinesville Police Department officer about public safety and crime prevention.

The All-Stars also honored star athletes for academic excellence.

The team’s slogan, "Where Excellence is Expected," sets a standard for the players. Every team member is required to maintain a B average to stay eligible. Some players went above and beyond and maintained "A" averages for the third nine weeks of the school year. They are Jaleel Gilbert, Aaron Kuhl, Marcus Scott V and Jerel Smith.

"These four students are where we expect all of our players to be, academically," All-Stars president and assistant coach Marcus Scott IV said. "Grades are what separate the good athletes from the great athletes. There are plenty of students that have the talent to play college basketball, but there are only a few that have an ‘A’ average and talent to play college basketball."

Scott’s All-Stars were featured on Slats Superstars on WSAV. The team travels to Jacksonville this weekend for a tournament.
