Here are the Coast2Coast All Atlanta Camp 1st Team and 2nd Team members in addition to the Top 20 rosters.
1st Team All-Atlanta Team
Zach Rollins- *Camp MVP
Zach was a matchup nightmare and nearly impossible to guard throughout camp. He hit 2 game winners and helped Canada to win the championship. Strong and athletic wing who can create his own shot and score at all 3 levels. He already has pro experience and would fit in a well in a league looking for a wing scorer.
Will Greene- Best athlete in camp and had multiple highlight reel dunks in traffic and on the fast break. Long and lanky athlete with a huge wingspan. Nice touch out to the mid range. Rebounds out of his area. Has experience in Europe and the middle east. Would be perfect in a league like Slovakia, B3 Japan, or Canada.
Chris Clarke- Was in the discussion for being the top overall player at camp. Played and guarded 4 positions- very versatile. Solid all around game and IQ. Good floor vision and passer. Unselfish player, very strong. Would be a great addition to a team/league that can bring over multiple imports and can play at a high level as a pro.
Antonio Singleton- Strong player with sweet shooting touch. Had multiple 3 pt makes and And 1s in each game including a huge game 2 where he may of had the biggest single game scoring performance of camp. High motor, vocal on the floor and a great teammate- makes other players better. Physical defender. Would be a great addition in a variety of leagues.
Brian Fobbs- Strong wing who was consistent scoring the ball efficiently all camp. Played both ends and impacted winning. Good shooter who can finish drives at the basket. Can play at a solid level in Europe right away-- game would fit in well in Finland, Hungary, Czech Republic for example.
2nd Team All-Atlanta Team
CJ Williams- Smooth shooter, very nice 1-2 dribble pull up jumper. Great range from the perimeter. Capable rebounder and defender. Got better each game we saw him play. Can create his own shot and scorers in bunches. Would fit in well in Canada, South America, or a league in Europe that relies heavily on imports for scoring.
Rodrick Sikes- Big time shooter with deep range at the combo guard position. Hit big shots throughout camp. Had a huge dunk in the second day of camp that got everyone's attention.
Anthony Adger- Arguably best pure PG in camp. Got teammates involved as well as scored when needed. Capable of hitting multiple 3 pointers off the catch or dribble. Excellent at making reads in pick and roll situations and has great court vision. Leader on the floor.
Joel Kindred- Smooth scorer who got better and better. Had some big scoring outputs and it seems to come easy to him. Good athlete who can score in transition or in the half court. Loves to play and energizes teammates.
Andrew Robinson- Good shooting 4 man who plays strong and hard. High IQ guy who doesn't force offense and impacts winning in multiple ways.

One of the core components of a Coast2Coast Showcase is exposure to people who are in positions to assist the pro aspirations of the attendees. From current pro head coaches who coached at the camp such as Nelson Terroba, Norm Richardson, Tanner Massey, Samir St Clair, Duck Richards and David Soloman, to team scouts, agents and other members of the basketball community plenty of the right eyeballs were on the action evaluating all the players. The competition was high level. High-quality video of all 13 games will be posted to the Coast2Coast YouTube Channel. Many suggested this was the best organized, top pro exposure event they had ever attended.
Each team had ample practice time to prepare for the tournament style format. A great additional feature was the seminar on becoming a professional basketball player as Co-Owner of Coast2Coast, James Blackburn and coaches Richards, Richardson, Massey and Terroba offered their insights in separate camp presentations.
