RazorSharks Finalize 2014-15 Roster for Training Camp
2014-15 RazorSharks Open Training Camp
Rochester NY, November 21st, 2014— The defending PBL championship Rochester RazorSharks open training camp with returning veterans include 6’3 shooting guard Darren Moore, 6’9 center Ayodele Coker, and 6’0 guard and MVP Jerice Crouch.
The RazorSharks returning three stars will be leaders on and off the court while using their experience from last year’s success to help set the example for the upcoming rookies heading into training camp.
Jerice Crouch, returning Championship MVP of the RazorSharks said, “I am excited for training camp and our upcoming season. Our coaching staff knows what they are doing and they are constantly helping us improve our game.”
Corey Allmond, one of the recent additions to the RazorSharks roster, was selected in the 2010 NBA D-League by the Fort Wayne Red Ants and is expected to play a major role for the RazorSharks this season.
Head Coach Robert Spon said, “I knew that tryout camp was going to be a long and stressful week. Every player coming in is talented but camp is what separates talent from hard work. We are able to see who comes prepared and who is willing to work the hardest for a starting spot.”
