Team: Ralph's Rats
Confident? Maybe. Vocal? Possibly. Effective and productive? No Question! Ralph Allen has prepared to re-introduce his 2009 version of the very formidable Ralph's Rats to the 9th Annual Premiere Exposure/Education Summer Pro League.
After blazing through the regular season last year with just one defeat, Ralph's Rats suffered a tough playoff loss to a very focused team Renegades who were determined on getting back to the finals. However on their way to an impressive regular season, the Rats were able to give eventual champs, the Manchester Millrats, their only loss of the season.
With an all pro backcourt of top Boston-native point guard Courtney Eldridge (Brazil & Poland), eventual 2008 Premiere Select members Tim Jones and Sherrod Prezzie-Blue (UK), Derek Coleman (Holland & Germany), add 2008 Premiere All-star JP Marcellus, plus a front court of Tyrelle Blair (Ukraine) and Mark Flavin (Uruguay), it is easy to see how the Rats could enter any gym confident and ready to win.
Ralph has worked closely with the top pro sports minor league teams in the region for years. His outreach of knowing top level players has been proven. In his enjoyment of the game, he sometimes calmly shows enough psychological warfare on opponents that would make the great Ali proud. He certainly embodies the recognizable mentality of former Knick great and current color commentator M. Jackson, when Jackson often says, "this is grown man business." Ralph's Rats (Double R) are back and they know the summertime is not for vacation when you are a pro. It's game time.
