Kentucky recruit Malik Newman fits in as the star on high school team
Dec. 10, 2013
For Malik Newman, the nation's top-ranked high school basketball player in the Class of 2015, this season holds high expectations. As a highly recruited Division I prospect garnering attention from the University of Kentucky, North Carolina and UCLA, Newman strives to elevate his game and be the key factor that sets Callaway (Miss.) High School apart from other programs in the country.
However, these high expectations aren't limited to Newman alone. After winning back-to-back State Championships in 2012 and 2013, talk of a three-peat is natural for a basketball program with so much talent.
Under first year head coach David Sanders, Callaway has struggled to find its identity through the early part of this season and is relying on each player to live up to his role in order for the team to get back to the Class 5-A title game.
On this episode of 'Beyond the Game,' meet the players that make up the 2013-14 Callaway Chargers — a group that, with its superstar teammate, strives to remain the best program in the state and make history again this season.
