Oh I can't wait for the documentary Elevate to be released! This documentary focuses on four tall guys from West Africa who, through the SEEDs Project - an intensive basketball and academic school in Senegal for West African - get the opportunity to attend American prep schools and eventually move on to play college basketball. I'm not sure how to explain the impact of this opportunity, but imagine going from a small town in Africa to be middle of Connecticut, on a full-ride (the type of high school education that might run the average CEO around $200,000) where you have top coaches (for the high school arena) and you get to play against other top high school players! Needless to say, it's insane and I can't wait to watch the journey of these four young guys!

Check out the trailer here.
