Welcome! As a coach, I wanted to share information about my basketball interests. The reason for choosing "Massey Basketball" is to make sure people understand this is not an official blog of Galesburg HS. The blog is designed to provide information about the Streaks and basketball, motivation, and anything that interests me.

Twitter- High School Athletes
The following recruiting tip was posted by an agency involved in helping high school players with the recruiting process--
"Every college coach I know say they've stopped recruiting a player based on their online updates w/ disrespectful language."
Some simple advice to high school athletes--
1- Don't use profanity on twitter.
2- Don't use twitter to publicly discuss or plan partying.
3- Don't use twitter to blast other people.
4- Don't use twitter to slam teammates, opponents, or coaches.
5- Pretend everything you tweet will be seen by your mother, your future coaches, and your future employers-- and realize they all probably will eventually see what you have written.
6- Block your account, but realize at some point the world will gain access to what you said.
