Turner heads for Georgia

Trailblazers Academy are delighted to announce that Sam Turner has signed his letter of intent to attend Emmanuel College in Georgia starting in August 2014.


Turner, who has been at the Academy for 3 years was the EABL Midlands conference defensive player of the year this season.


He also earned EABL first team all conference along with an EBL 2 league and PlayOff championship medal for his contribution to the Trailblazers senior team.


Coach Shaw was beaming as he said "It's a testament to Sam's effort and dedication. Sam completed AASE last summer but decided to turn down his place at Worcester and stay with us for one more season studying extra AS Level in the hope he'd get a chance in America. I am delighted its worked out for him"


Sam is the second player Coach Shaw has sent to Emmanuel after Dominic Murphy headed west in 2008. "I know Coach Rossene has an excellent program, you just have to look at their record since he took charge to see that. He delivers in terms of player development and winning teams. We are delighted to be providing him with another player and I know Sam will do well in Georgia"
