(by Shae Otto) #ECBuzz The Evansville Homeschool Thunderbolts are pleased to announce the appointment of their new Athletic Director for the upcoming 2019-2020 Basketball season. Mr. Phillip Nunn took the reins from the current Athletic Director Clayton Nunn in March. Phil previously held roles on the Evansville Thunderbolts Advisory Board, as a Parent Advocate, and has served as a parent volunteer since the Thunderbolt’s inaugural season. He brings managerial experience from his role as Production Supervisor with Toyota Logistics Services, Inc. Phil believes in the Thunderbolt’s mission of giving the homeschooled youth in the Evansville area an opportunity to play highly competitive basketball in an environment conducive to personal Christian growth. By introducing players to a tournament atmosphere and character building competition with likeminded organizations, he seeks to cultivate the character and the leadership skills which will assist these future leaders for Christ’s Kingdom.
As Athletic Director, Phil will oversee the general operation and financial management of the program. He will continue to serve as a listening ear for parental concerns, suggestions, and as a first line resource for conflict resolution purposes in addition to ensuring collaboration and accountability between coaches. He desires to maintain and enhance the Thunderbolts commitment to athletic excellence, tradition of success, and continued growth of the organization. Clayton Nunn, and Athletic Director of the Evansville Thunderbolts since its inception in 2014, will be stepping down to focus on completing his degree in Sports Marketing and Management at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana. He has served as Athletic Director and Coach for the past five years while attending school. Clayton will continue his relationship with the Thunderbolts in the upcoming season by serving in the role of Basketball Consultant. He plans to assist with preparing team and player game video and statistics.
(by Doug Shelton) A group of HCA players combined forces with players from San Antonio FEAST and Weatherford Express to play in Rice University's team camp this weekend. "Team TCA" faced off against both public school and AAU teams, finishing the camp with an overall record of 5-2. The players represented themselves, their programs and homeschool basketball well. Highlights from Team TCA included
- HCA's Isaiah Jones with B2B dunks in one game, with the second flush coming off a beautiful feed from San Antonio FEAST's Isaiah Halliburton.
- Weatherford Express' Aaron Paulukaitis flying in to finish off a gorgeous pass off the backboard from San Antonio FEAST's Elijah Halliburton. (Aaron had three dunks in the game.)
- HCA's Nathan Shelton throwing it down in traffic.
