23 players from the Old Line State and Delaware  in the 2023-2025 graduating classes came to the Harford Sports Complex on March 3rd for our first Junior Future Games Trials of 2019. PBR Maryland staff was on hand to putting the players through a workout to evaluate them for a possible invitation to this summer's Junior Future Games at the LakePoint Sporting Community in Cartersville, Georgia. Below are some quick notes on several players that stood out from the event.
