Dougherty HS Team Camp Recap

Updated: May 30

Summer basketball is in full effect in Southwest Georgia. I had the opportunity to attend the first camp of the summer, Dougherty High School's May Team Camp. I was very impressed with the talent that I saw and it appears that basketball in Albany is on the rise again. Here are some of the players that stood out at the camp!


Justin Burns | 2024 SF | Monroe High School

Burns instantly made his presence known today with his forceful dunks at the rim. The 6'5' small forward is arguable one of the best athletes in Southwest Georgia. Burns showed the ability to score off the bounce by getting to the basket or pulling up for a mid-range jumper. He snatched almost every rebound that he went after and made several blocks as a second rotation player.

Josiah Parker | 2025 F | Lee County High School

After running out of time in the GHSA 6A State Championship game last season, Parker is looking like he's ready to help Lee County make another run. Today, he played with a lot of grit and effort as he helped the Trojans go 2-0. Parker is a versatile G/F that was able to get into the lane and create for teammates. He has improved his shooting on the perimeter and mixed up his game to be more effective in the post and at the elbow. If he continues to play with this type of effort, his stock should rise by the end of the summer.

Jai'on Burns | 2024 PG | Dougherty High School

Burns can easily be called "Kyrie of South Georgia". He is a magician with the basketball and when he has it going, he goes on game altering scoring surges. Burns has made some improvements to his game. He made good reads when attacking the basket and looked comfortable facilitating for teammates. In transition he is very difficult to contain and has several layup packages in his bag.

William Myles | 2026 PG | Lee County High School

Myles was very impressive running the show for Lee County. He is a quick shifty guard that broke down the defense and made good reads to find teammates. Myles played with pace and picked his times to look for his shot. He also was a pest of defense and made it hard for the opposing point guards to run their offense.

Braylon Chaney | 2025 PG | Lee County HS

Chaney was spark for Lee County off the bench. With his speed, he sliced up defenses to get in the lane and was getting the ball to guys in their spot. d made plays for teammates. Chaney knocked down a couple 3-pointers and played with good pace. He didn't try to over drive the ball and looked confident taking the 10-15 foot jumper instead.

AJ Grant | 2024 SG | Bainbridge High School

One of the hardest playing guys on the day was AJ Grant! He's the top returning player for Bainbridge and his role has increased tremendously. Grant is a 3 level scorer that wows the crowd with deep threes but also lives in the lane with his violent drives. A fearless competitor, Grant is one of the best two-way players in the area.

Lorenzo Steele | 2025 PG | Monroe High School

When you think of a floor general, Lorenzo Steele is your guy. He is the engine that runs the Tornado train. Steele is a pass-first guard that plays with good pace and never seems to be sped up. He likes to get to his spots on the court and elevate for his mid-range jumper or uses his floater.

Kaleke Jinks | 2025 CG | Dougherty High School

Dougherty has a silent assassin in Jinks! He is a strong guard that uses his body to overpower the defense when he attacks the basket. Jinks has a quick first step and blows past defenders in one dribble, but his mid-range game is one of the best I have seen in the state. Jinks can heat up in an instance when he is confident from making good plays on both ends of the court.
