Importance of Success in the Classroom as well as on the Court



When you become a part of the Angels Basketball organization, our goals are both on and off the court including in the classroom. Check out this article that explains the importance of academic success in order to recieve a college basketball scholarship. The article features first hand experience from many college and high school coaches in Louisiana including our very own Denis Aidoo. The article shows how dedicated Coach Aidoo is with helping his players obtain and surpass their goals both on the court and in the classroom. The article also features two former Angels Basketball players under Coach Aidoo. Tiffany Aidoo and Kyhonta Doughty excelled both on and off the court. They both fought hard to overcome many obstacles in order to succeed at both basketball and academics.

The Angels Basketball organization is looking forward to helping future athletes succeed at their goals.

2012 STATE CHAMPS



Congrats to the 11th Grade Angels for a magnificent run through the State Tournament.  To win the State Tournament and attain the number 2 seed in the AAU Nationals is a huge milestone.  It is also pretty impressive to win both pool play games by 20+ points, and to have never trailed in any of the bracket play games including the championship against the #2 ranked team in the nation.  I am very proud of all of the players.  I would like to thank the coaching staff, the parents, and all of the other Angel supporters who helped make this happen.  Without your support none of this would be possible. 

I also would like to congratulate all of the other Angel teams and their acheivements in the State Tournament this weekend.  3 State champs, 1 second place finish, and 1 third place finish is quite an accomplishment.  It was also great to see so many Angel teams at the tournament supporting each other. 

Finally, I would like to thank all of the former Angels who continue to support the organization.  You have all helped to establish this great team environment and tradition.  The strength and unity of the Angels wouldn't be possible without you.  You all help to make us who we are.

Coach Denis
