First Look Lake Worth Pride 2023
Lake Worth Pride 2023 had an impressive showing at the #PBCHOOPS "Summer Championships" this past weekend. Head coach Carrington Ible has a talented squad with players from around Palm Beach County.
One of their players is Marvin Golf (pictured behind #1). The 6-foot-4 guard/forward has been with Lake Worth Pride since 3rd grade. Golf is a strong rebounder and defender that can guard bigger players. Offensively, Golf has an excellent mid-range game and can score at the rim. He averaged a double-double for the Pride with 14 points, 12 rebounds and five steals per game. He is an all-county performer for Lake Worth High School where he averaged 14.5 points and 7.8 rebounds as a junior. Moreover, he shot at least 67 percent from the floor in each contest he scored 20 or more points for the Trojans (five games). Golf poured in a season-high 32 points and added 10 rebounds against Forest Hill. Expect Golf to have a big senior season.
Another prospect is Frenelson Atilus (pictured #5). The Dwyer product is a strong guard that can score from all three levels. Atilus averaged 15 points and five assists for the Pride during live periods. I was impressed with Atilus off the dribble over the weekend. He can change speeds and use his compact frame to effectively score off the drive. Moreover, he has plenty of acceleration when given a lane.
Geraldo Ortiz (pictured #7) has great court vision and can shoot the ball at a high percentage. Ortiz led the Pride with eight assists per game. He is a tough defender against any player he is matched up against. Ortiz will attend Palm Beach Lakes for his senior season.
Carlos Perez (pictured #4) is a prospect that can play the one or two. Ortiz is excellent attacking the rim and knows how to finish. On defense, he often guards the opponents best prospect. Perez averaged 12 points and nine rebounds for the Pride this summer.
Watch out for Tony Wade as well (pictured #2). He is a tough on-ball defender with active hands. On offense, Wade can shoot from anywhere on the floor. The 5-foot-10 prospect also has a quick first step he uses to get to the bucket. Wade intends to transfer to Park Vista.
