First group of top performers from the 16U level of the Summer Jam. Several familiar names that have had big years on the NY2LA Association as well to a few new ones to this list. 

Josiah Calvin – 2025 – PG – Greater Purpose Athletics

One of the better point guards at the 16U level having multiple impressive games. He moves so well with the ball in his hands getting wherever he wants to score and distribute the ball effectively. A real playmaker with plenty of paint touches and sees the floor as well to being able to hit shots from the outside. 

Jake Champagne – 2025 – PG – North Oakland Wolfpack

Whether it was running the point or scoring the basketball, Champagne played well doing both with a good ability to create for himself and his teammates. He is a smart guard with good feel and moves well with the ball. The guard has a smooth jumper from the outside and can create his own shot. 

Stevie Elam – 2025 – G – The Academy

While Elam has played well over the past two years, he continues to greatly improve his game. He is a very gifted scorer with three games going for twenty points or more to help get his team into the semifinals. He is an athletic guard that excels making plays off the dribble scoring around the paint and in the mid-range but continues to improve his outside shooting. Over the weekend he received an offer from Northwood and was also recently offered from Central Michigan. 

Omari Evans – 2025 – PG – Region Force

Evans has a good array of point guard skills and excels with the ball in his hands. He has strong handle as well to very good vision. Evans really looks to distribute the ball but is also an effective scorer himself having a twenty-point game. He is also a good on ball defender with quick feet and hands. 

Bobby Grganto – 2025 – F – Illinois Attack

The 6’5” forward with a solid build had himself a stellar game Friday night going for 22 points leading his team to a win. He did much of scoring with tough buckets around the paint through contact. Though he also can put the ball on the floor going strong to the basket plus also hit a few threes over the tournament. In a tight win Friday, he also hit some key free throws in the final minute to ice the game. 

Miles Jackson – 2025 – G – All Ohio Select

A highly skilled scorer with a good ability to create for himself. Over the course of the tournament, he scored in double figures in each game including a 21-point performance. He is incredibly tough to defend off the dribble as he is strong with the ball and is able to create his own shot and hit them well off the dribble but also get all the way to the basket. One of the more skilled 2025 scorers at the tournament.

Howie Keene – 2025 – SG – Team Temple

Keene continues to be one of the top 2025 players on the NY2LA Association and has even greater upside with his positional size at 6’5” and skill set. The lengthy wing guard can really score the basketball with games of twenty-four and nineteen points. Keene has such a pure jumper from the outside hitting tough shots right over defenders but also utilizes his long strides to get to the basket. 

Zach Kinziger – 2025 – G – Team Herro

Kinziger was a big piece of Team Herro’s championship tournament standing out with not only his distributing but also his shot making. In both the mid-range and from the outside, he has a smooth jumper and was consistently hitting his shots at a high percentage. He came up in the clutch in the championship game scoring nineteen points. The 6’3” guard recently picked up an offer from Wisconsin who was in attendance for his games throughout the tournament.
