Josh Level, at New Garden Friends School


THE GAME

This showcase event began as a charity event in the late Spring of 2014. It was a senior year project by Kanayo Obi-Rapu, Josh's best friend. The goal was to raise money and awareness for the need of AED's in all high schools, while also bringing the community together to celebrate the life of Josh. The game was played at Dudley High School, Josh's orginal high school. The event was a huge success and has been growing in popularity and support every year. The game has included NBA, ACC and numerous other Division-1 talents, and popular basketball Youtube channels such as Ballislife, EliteMixtapes, MakePlayz and HoopMixtape have been there to film the event annually.
