Ogoro chasing basketball scholarship in USA

Redden Court pupil Daniel Ogoro is taking great strides to gain a basketball scholarship in America.

Year 10 student Ogoro took his talents across the Atlantic Ocean during the recent half-term holidays and visited three of the top schools stateside to practice with their teams and gain exposure.

A Redden Court spokesperson said: “Daniel played very well at each school and soon realised that he can compete at the very top level and that all of his hard work before and after school is paying off.

“One coach said Daniel had the most potential seen in his age group. It is great to see how hard Daniel works for his dream. His enthusiasm and positive attitude towards basketball has rubbed off on many of our other students and he also helps coach many of our younger teams.

“Daniel is a credit to our school and we wish him the best of luck in his pursuit for greatness.”
