On Saturday February 16th and February 23rd PBR Maryland will host the Preseason All-State at the Harford Sports Performance Center in Forest Hill, MD. The biggest events prior to the high school season in Maryland will feature several of the top players and prospects from around the state and put them all on one stage in front of the PBR scouting staff. As with all PBR events, all players will get their performance videoed and professionally edited to update or start their PBR Profile. Today we spotlight one of the players on the roster for the event.

Don't miss out on your opportunity to #BESEEN before the high school season begins!
