Golden tickets were recently given to two players, Carlton Gamble and Jeremiah Mack, during the D1spects Always Live: South Georgia Classic held in Statesboro.
Golden tickets are awarded to players who perform exceptionally well during grueling weekend tournaments and championship play. As golden ticket recipients, these players are invited to the D1spects All-Star Weekend, one of the largest national exposure events for high school players.
As members of the Down South Georgia Boys (DSGB) travel team, Gamble and Mack have played alongside team members from Twin City, Statesboro, and Soperton.
The DSGB Bulldogs travel team offers players a high level of competition with a mission to improve fundamental basketball skills, college preparation, and community stewardship.
Both Gamble and Mack attend ECI and play for the Bulldogs basketball team.
