July 12, 2016 – Fargo, ND – Prep Hoops Dakotas has selected Sean Coffman Fine Art Photography to document images for their organization at the NCAA Certified Sanford Pentagon Summer Slam Basketball Tournament in Sioux Falls, SD, on Saturday, July 16th. Photo documentation for the event will cover the 15u – 17u age bracket.
Prep Hoops began in March of 2012 to fill a gap in the coverage of college-bound prospects. The top players were being followed and publicized, but there remained a significant number of talented, potentially college-bound prospects that weren’t getting the coverage they deserved. As a result, Northstar Hoops Report was born in Minnesota. It was an immediate success and led to the subsequent launch of Prep Hoops Iowa in April 2014. Within 18 months, Prep Hoops expanded to Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, North and South Dakota, North Carolina, Ohio and Oklahoma with the ultimate goal of offering comprehensive prospect coverage in every state. By covering prospective players in all divisions – Division 1, Division 2, Division 3, NAIA D1 and D2, and Junior College – Prep Hoops helps student-athletes fulfill their dreams. The goal of Prep Hoops remains the same as the network expands: to continue to be the most comprehensive resource for high school basketball evaluation and recruitment in each state and, ultimately, the country.
