NextLEVEL 24 would like to congratulate Eric Hunt for winning the all expense paid trip to New York to compete the National JR. NBA Skills Challenge presented by Verizon Wireless. Eric will be also attending the 2017 NBA Draft.

This is the second year in a row that someone who has trained and played for NextLEVEL 24 has won this event. Last year Destini Rose and Jayson Kent won trips to New York and were the featured athletes on all of this year promotional items.

Eric’s hard work and dedication to getting better and sharpening his craft has paid off for him big time and we here at NextLEVEL 24 are very proud of him.
