Oakland High School Boys Basketball Team 1023 MacArthur Blvd, Oakland, CA 94610 Dear Alumni: Did you know that the Boys Basketball Team budget from the Oakland Athletic League is $0 for the 2014-2015 school year but our expenses will exceed $8,000? We need your help! Because of our reputation, accomplishments, and the dedication of our basketball players, we have been invited to play in 2 prestigious tournaments and 1 showcase this year. Our players are honored to have the opportunity to play in the Under Armour Holiday Classic in San Diego, the McDonald’s Classic Tournament in Stockton, and the Sac vs. Bay Showcase in Sacramento. We pride ourselves not only on the athletic performance of our players but our team’s commitment to academic excellence and we work hard to provide them with opportunities and exposure typically inaccessible to most inner-city students. Education is a cornerstone of our program and is evidenced by our Team GPA of 3.0 over the past 8 years. Attached is a list of former basketball players that have either completed their degrees or are currently enrolled in college many of these students were recruited at tournaments like these that we hope to attend this year. Participation in these tournaments will reward the hard work of our players and give them the opportunity to showcase their talents in competitive venues. Our basketball program relies heavily on donations from our alumni and the community at large. Please consider making a tax deductible donation to help us close the $7,550 budget gap. Your donation will be used for travel, lodging, and car rental expenses. More importantly with your help, our basketball players will be exposed to coaches and scouts with the ability to award scholarships and change lives! Donations of any size are appreciated. A $300 donation will cover the expenses of one student per tournament. Thank you for your consideration and support. We hope to see you at one of our games this basketball season. Please contact Coach Orlando Watkins (510-517-2659 or firstname.lastname@example.org) or Coach William Lew (510-684-2754 or email@example.com) if you have any questions. Sincerely, Orlando Watkins William Lew Head Coach Assistant Coach -------------------------- Former Oakland High Basketball Players Player Oakland High Graduation College College Graduation Henry Grant 2007 Colgate University 2011 Dondrale Campbell 2008 Greenville College 2012 Drake Green 2008 Pittsburg State University 2012 Damian Lillard* 2008 Weber State University 2012 Mariano Macedon 2008 University of California, Los Angeles 2012 PJ Taylor 2008 Lewis and Clark College 2012 Thomas Watkins 2008 California State University, Los Angeles Current Fernando Mesina 2009 University of California, Riverside Current Dave Douglas 2010 California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo Current Damante Horton 2010 Washington State University Current Dyllon Mafi 2010 Oregon State University Current Kelly Mitchell 2010 Laney College Current Jabari Brown 2011 University of Missouri Current Marcellus Clay 2011 Ohlone College Current Jalen Headspeth 2011 California State University, Monterey Bay/Diablo Valley College Current Andrew Nash 2011 Diablo Valley College, accepted to St Mary’s College Current Dominique Taplin 2011 Dominican University Current TJ Taylor 2011 University of California, Santa Barbara Current Jamil Brown 2012 City College of San Francisco Current Cameron Coleman 2012 College of Alameda Current Keith Pheng 2012 College of Alameda Current Meshawn Beard 2013 Lassen Community College Current Jimarre Billups 2013 Paul Quinn College Current Semaj Horace 2013 William Jessup University Current Jimmy Tran 2013 University of California, Davis Current *2013 NBA Rookie of the Year
