    Why are all these EBAL kids getting so much love?

    Don’t the major league scouts know that there are other teams in the area who have kids who try hard?

    Hello all. What’s the story on Joe Lewis? Is he likely to sign with the Giants? Does he have a college comittment?

  • Kyle Bonagura

    It’s rare for anyone that low in the draft to sign, so I doubt he will.

    I’m not sure what his college plans are…

  • Tom Meyer

    congrats to all the high school players drafted. Pretty cool just to be drafted
