I had the chance to catch up with standout freshmen, Anthony Mosley (Sanford, DE) this weekend. We talked about some of the deciding factors on picking Sanford School for high school and what it’s like to play for an AAU powerhouse like the D.C. Assault program. Anthony also mentioned some of his goals he has set for his upcoming freshmen season. There is a lot of buzz about Anthony Mosley he is considered one of the top rated players in his class in the tri-state area.

PHR: Talk a little bit about what it’s like to play for an AAU powerhouse like the D.C. Assault?
AM: To play for a program like D.C. Assault is great because it is daily competition.
