The 2nd Annual Brooks DeBartolo Thanksgiving Shootout featured nine teams over the course of two days. A lot of Tampa Bay talent was present, and two teams (Spruce Creek and Fort Myers) made the trip to take part in the shootout. There were a lot of big prospects in this shootout so you were bound to see college coaches, media, and even players from other local teams who came to watch their travel ball teammates. The best game of this tournament ended up being the last game played between Brooks DeBartolo and Seffner Christian in a game that Brooks held on for a two point victory. The team that impressed the most was Plant HS with Brooks DeBartolo coming in at a close second. Here are some of the standout players I saw this week from each team (minimum 2 games played):
Plant Panthers (3-0)
Honor Culpepper '20 looks strong after missing last season to a torn ACL. She scored 26 points over the two games on a very balanced Plant squad that was the most impressive team in this shootout. Honor hit 6 three's in those games and distributed the ball well to her teammates.
