The 4th Annual All Arizona High Academic Camp was held on March 4th, 2012 at North Canyon High School in Phoenix, Arizona. Over 80 of Arizona's top student athletes demonstrated their skills in front of local and national media. This event was sold out, which illustrates the interest and the success of this first-of-a-kind event in Arizona.
Here are some highlighted by ArizonaVarsity.com as top guards who attended the event.
Coby de Laveaga (Perry) - Very good shooter from the mid-range to the three point line. Good court awareness. Projected to be a very good combo guard as he continues to mature.
Thailand Gatlin (Perry) - Pure point guard. Has the potential to be a very good on the ball defender. Good future ahead.
Gino Littles (Chaparral) - Crafty pure point guard that is also a good shooter out to the three point stripe. Always working on his game and will be a factor as he continues to develop.
Marco Morales (Chandler) - Simply one of the top shooters in the state. He appears to have been working on his all around game as he is becoming a complete player. Added size has made him a very good threat at the varsity level.
Brandon Beenau (Liberty) - Solid all around guard who has deceptive athleticism. Very good hops and can score in a variety of ways. He will have a breakout junior season as he continues to get physically stronger.
Dylan Bliss (Gilbert Christian) - Solid contributor on the Gilbert Christian State Championship team. Has a good skill set and meshes well in a team environment. Has shown that he can consistently knock down the mid-range jumper.
Randell Roberts (Boulder Creek) - Had a breakout senior campaign for Boulder Creek, which has made him a solid prospect to play somewhere next year. Heady guard who gets after it on both ends and is an effective ball handler. Has assets that would be valuable to any team.
Kevin Torres (Red Mountain) - True warrior and leader. Leadership is off the charts and can score whenever the team needs it. Whenever Torres was on the floor, the Red Mountain team was capable of beating anyone in the state. Probably meant as much to his high school team as anyone in the state. Very good ball hander, good speed and quickness and can really shoot it well. Broke his own school record with 199 assists during the season.
