Massanutten Military Academy has had the pleasure of Coach Chad Myers leading its post-graduate basketball program for 5 seasons. Coach Myers is able to lead with unlimited success through his passion for the game and overall, unrivaled commitment to the team. He immerses himself fully with the team each season and personally invests his time in them to lead the team to unprecedented achievements. Coach Myers builds up the team and prepares them for life after high school and the rigorous responsibility of college athletics. Under his guide, their mantra is “We Move As 1”. By instilling the theme of working as one unit, the team has been able to achieve a record setting year at MMA!
Over 90% of the PG players who have played for Coach Myers, have gone on to earn a full scholarship at the college level and succeed inside and outside of the classroom. Scholarships have been earned at universities such as Kansas, Miami, Ole Miss, Florida State, Utah, Maryland, Boston College, Alabama, Kennesaw State, LSU, Radford, North Carolina A&T, Rutgers, St. Louis, Tusculum College, UMBC, VMI, Wichita State, Wofford, Winston Salem State, Mars Hill, King College, Concord University, Bluefield College, and Alderson Broaddus. Some of our PG basketball alumni are playing in the NBA, such as Frank Mason of the Sacramento Kings.
This year, MMA hosted the inaugural Military Circuit. This showcase brought over 30 D1, D2 and D3 coaches to MMA for the tournament, allowing players to be scouted by some of the top universities. Coaches from schools including West Virginia, Arkansas, Georgetown, Florida Gulf Coast University, Monmouth, Xavier, Longwood, Boston College, Maryland, Iowa State, Longwood, Tulane, Towson, North Carolina State University and more were among those in attendance.
In addition to hosting the Military Circuit, the team competed in a national schedule, traveling to Florida, Connecticut, Georgia, North Carolina and other states to compete against other top PG teams. While the players of PG Basketball capture the attention of college coaches, future MMA PG players, and the local Woodstock community; the players also serve as mentors to our other, younger cadets. Many cadets will miss seeing the PG team on campus and at games, but will be cheering for them at their respective colleges and universities next year!
